What does Slim say he would have done to the dog if he hadn’t given it to Lennie? What do you think of his treatment of animals?

HE probably would have killed it like the other pups.I think that he does all he can do. It is not like there are dog pounds and such. They are not really in a community big enough to go around asking if anyone wants a dog. He probably doesn’t want them all to grow up to have five large dogs who can have more puppies running around all over the place while they are trying to work.

Slim would have killed the other dog if he hadn’t given it to Lennie. He isn’t fair when it comes to animals. It bothers me that he killed newborn puppies beacause how would he have known if his dog could have fed all nine of them if he hadn’t seen her do it. I don’t agree with the treatment.

Slim said he would have just drowned the other dog is he hadn’t given it to Lenny. I think that it’s mean that Slim would kill the puppies just because he didn’t want them. I’m sure there are other people on the ranch that would be more than happy to take care of one of the puppies so it wouldn’t get killed. Sometimes there are just better way to do things.

Slim would’ve killed the other dog if he didn’t give it to Lennie. I don’t like his attitude toward animals. He doesn’t treat them right. He should be worried about more important things on the farm then the dogs that are around.

Slim said that he would of killed the other puppies if he didnt give them to Lennie. I think his treatment of animals is bad because likes killeing ethm for no reason, just because he doesnt want them.

10love- i agree with you and that is cruel treatment to dogs. So do you think slim should have kept him? what would he do with 8 pupies after he gave one to lennie?

Comment by epszczolkowski

I wish he didn’t have to kill those other puppies, ubt I guess I can understand why he did. I mean, these guys have very little money, and Slim can’t afford to feed all of them. How sad!

Comment by Miss Fowler

Slim said he was going to drown them. I think it is sad that he can’t afford to feed they.

Comment by jktubman

Slim said he would drown the puppies because he has no room to keep them and can’t afford the expense. I thought this action was horrible and could have been prevented because if they tried they could have found at least a couple of homes for the puppies if they asked people around their community.

Slim would have drowned the dog if he hadnt given it to Lennie. I think that it was bad that Slim was going to do that but he probably doesnt neither would the boss want nine more dogs running around the ranch.

Comment by seanfl

Slim would have drowned the dogs. I think that is such a mean thing to do, it shows he really doesn’t care about animals.

Comment by taylorrr

Yeah, Slim would have drowned the dogs if he didn’t give them to Lennie, but what do you expect him to do, with low amounts of money. He needs most of the money for himself, let alone nine dogs.

Comment by busses

Slim said he would have killed the dog if he didn’t give it to Lennie. I think that this is bad treatment to animals but it had to be done because there wasn’t enough money to buy food for all of the dogs so they would die anyways.

Comment by nwantoinette

Slim said he would have killed the dog anyways if he hadn’t given it to Lennie. I think killing the dog in his eyes is a good thing because it limits costs but maybe he should sell them to a different ranch so the dog could live and he could make money off of it.

Comment by gdpeter

Slim would of killed the dog if he didn’t give it to Lennie. I think this is wrong because you should not treat animals like that and if you were a dog would you want to be killed?

Comment by emearhart

Slim would of killed the other dog if he didn’t give it to Lennie. I think that the treatment of his animals is harsh and I think that its wrong.

Comment by knwilliam

Slim already drowned some of the puppies, and he said he would have probably killed the puppy if he didn’t give it to Lennie. At the time, people’s biggest worry was themselves and money, he killed the puppies to save money and time. I think it’s disgusting and inhumane to kill the puppies, I don’t think that’s what he had to do.

Comment by davidobrien722

Slim said he would have killed them if he did not give them to lennie. I think that is a cruel thing to do to an animal.

Comment by fstarr

slim said that he would kill the dogs if he did not give them to lennie. I think that to kill the dogs would be wrong. but on the other hand if he did not they might of died because a lack of food.

Comment by ms07

slim wanted to kill the dogs he didnt need. He treats animals very poorly and he should let the dogs live.

Comment by clgarland

he probly would of killed it but i think his treatment of animals is quite logical because he cant support all of them .

Comment by kkbruce

Slim drowning the dog is very crewl if he was smart he would have sold them, but at least lenny saved one.

Comment by mudisfun10

Slim said that he was going to drown the puppy if Lennie didn’t take it. And if he was smart he would have sold them and got money for them.

Comment by jessnick1992

Slim was going to drown the puppies. He doesn’t treat animals like they should be treated. He treats them like they’re nothing.

Comment by skatergirl55

Slim had drowned 4 puppies already, so he would proabaly drown that one too. He doesn’t treat animals right. It’s seriously wrong to do that to a helpless animal.

Comment by rachypachy

Slim would probarly drowned the pup because he already drowned 4 of the other pups and none of the guys can afford to feed any of the pups.

Comment by jessicaxo

I think that if Lennie didn’t get the pup it would of been killed. Slim was killing all of the other ones those that one would be no different.

Comment by wamanda

if no one tookthe pup he would of been killed but lennie took the pup in time be for slim killed

Comment by jdkeller

lennie wanted the pup so slim gave it to him…if lennie didnt take it slim would of killed it,because he couldnt efford to take care of it

Comment by sortisio92
