Carlson is set on the idea of shooting Candy’s dog. What case does he make for doing so? How does Candy respond? Why does he refuse to shoot his dog?

I do not know why Carlson is so obsessed on getting rid of the dog. He makes the case that it is old arthritic and smelly. Candy is really attached to this dog and i think that part of it is that he lived nearly his whole life with the dog. It is like a family member to him and Candy doesm’t seem to have many other people in his life that are close to him. I think the only reason he agreed is because Slim sort of agreed with Carlson.

Carlson is so set on shotting Candy’s dog beacause of the simple fact that he’s old and he smells. Candy does not want to let Carlson shott his dog because he was had him since he was a pup and he was the best sheep dog he had ever known.

Carlson is so set on shooting Candy’s dog because the dog is old and smells and Candy doesn’t like having to sleep smelling that. Carlson figures that if he shoots the dog he will put it out of its’ old misery anyway.

Comment by jacquiem

Candy doesn’t want his dog to be shot because of the fact that his dog is so old, and he has been around for so long.

Comment by 10kmiller

Candy does not want to shoot his dog because he has had the dog since it was a pup and he said that it used to be the best sheep dog that he had ever seen. Candy doesn’t object to anyone shooting his dog he just tried to change their opinion about it a little bit.

Carlson is set on shooting Candy’s dog because it is old and smelly. But Candy doesn’t want Carlson to shoot the because he has been around for so long and he has raised him as a puppy.

Comment by rsborn

He wants to shoot the dog so much for some reasons. The dog is old and its not able to do so much anymore. Also the dog smells and is not realli doing anything for people.

Carlson is set on the idea of shooting Candy’s old dog for the simple reasons that it smells up the room they sleep in and because he is very old. Poor Candy doesn’t know what to say to protect his best friend, that has been with him since he was a puppy. Candy is similar to the old dog in the way that now just like his dog, he is old and can’t do the work we used to do and to the rest of the men, useless.

Comment by epszczolkowski

Carlson shoots candys’ dog because he stinks and is really old. Carlson still gets a chance to shoot him.

Comment by clgarland

Carslon wants to shoot Candy’s dog because the dog is old, can’t preform any tasks and Carlson wants to kill it because it has no use and it is taking up space. Candy doesn’t want his dog to die because he has a sentimental attachment to the dog because he saw it grow from a puppy. Also he knows that the dog was useful at one time and thinks that it should not be harmed, due to these reasons.

Comment by nb14

Carslon’s case for shooting Candy’s dog is that he is old, smells & can’t even see or walk.
Candy’s responds is saying that he does not want his dog to be shot. He refuses to shoot his dog because he had him sence a pup & that he is so used to having him around but also that fact that he used to be a good sheep dog when youger.

Comment by jjspencer

I’m not quite sure why Caralson is so set on shooting that dog but he does.The only reasons Carlson had was that he smelled and was old, which are hardly any reason to shoot a living creature. Candy did give into it, but he didn’t do it, later he did regret a stranger shooting it.

Comment by doplato

Carlson wants to shoot Curley’s dog because it’s mauled, and smelly. Candy does not respond well to this because he’s had his dog since he was a pup and he was the best sheep dog that he’d ever seen.

Comment by laurenxxs

Carlson wants to shoot the dog because he says he is to old and his time is over but candy does not want him to because he says he has had him for to long.

Comment by fstarr

i could see why carlson wanted to shoot the dog because he was old and probably in pain. the only reason that he agreed to it is because slim agreed with carlson.

Comment by ms07

Just because the dog was old doesn’t give Slim the right to kill it. It was Curley’s dog and he should be the one making the decisions about his pet, not Slim.

Comment by 10kmiller

Carlson is so set on shooting Curley’s dog because he smells and is an inconveinece. Also because he thinks that the dog is just hurting itself by staying alive. Curley doesn’t want Slim to kill his dog because it’s been with him for a very long time. I don’t think Carlson had any right at all to shoot the dog. If somebody was going to do that to me, I would flip out and not let them./

Comment by kligsfosho

Carlson wants to shoot the dog because it’s old and it smells. He tells Candy that the dog won’t feel anything becuase he don’t know whats coming to him. Candy reacts by trying to defend his dog by saying that he’s had it since it was a pup and that he don’t want to shoot him. He refuses to shoot the dog because he’s too close with it and he doesn’t want to see it go.

Comment by knwilliam

Carlson’s reasoning for wanting to shoot the dog is that the dog is old and suffering. He wants to put the dog out of its missery.Candy didnt want him to do that becase hes been with this dog forever. He didn’t want to shoot his dog because of that reason too.

Comment by evanhouty

Carlson wants to shoot the dog becasue the dog is old and smells. Candy didnt want him to kill the dog becasue he had the doy since it was a puppy.

Comment by rsarah

Carlson wants to shoot the dog because the dog is old and smells. Also Candy didn’t want to shoot the dog because he has raised that dog its whole life. Candy doesn’t show much emotion he is just very quiet about the death of the dog.

Comment by wamanda

Carlson wanted to shoot the dog because it was old and smelly. Candy agrees but then goes on his bunk and ignored everyone. Candy also refused to shoot him himself because he had raised him since he was a pup.

Comment by jessnick1992

Carlson wants to kill Candys dog because it is to old for him and it is stinking up the bnkhouse. But when he agrees to it he just sits on the bunk facing the wall. He didnt want to kill him because he had him since he was just a pup

Comment by summers27

Carlson says that the dog is too old and he’s no help to anyone or to himself and it smells. Candy doesn’t really say anything he just lays on him bed. Candy says that he has had that dog ever since it was a puppy so it has been with him a long time.

Comment by skatergirl55

Carlson wants to shoot the dog because he’s old and smells. Candy doesn’t want the dog shot because the dog is his friend and has been there since he was a pup.

Comment by rachypachy

CArlson wants to shoot the dog becxause he claims its old and smells very bad. Candy doesn’t want to do this but he has to. He regrets not shooting the dog himself.

Comment by timmypp

I think that candy agreed to Carlson to kill his dog because everyone just always kept complaining about how his dog smelled and how old his dog was and he probarly thouht that if he didn’t let them kill his dog that they would kick him out. While they killed his dog, Candy just kinda eccnored it because the dog was the only family member in his life he had since he was a pup.

Comment by jessicaxo

I think he’s just using ‘old and smelly’ as an excuse. He might have been jealous that Candy actually had a ‘friend’ with him all the time. Carlson didn’t know how to love or how to be loved

Comment by sarubobo28

carlison wanted to kill candys dos because he said ” it was miserable,old,and dieing slowly” he wanted to put it out of its misery…candy agreed to do so but he wouldnt do it himself because he had to many good memories with that dog.
