Candy reacts by being silient and when the dog is about to be killed he looks up at the ceiling and pretends like everythings all right, even though it is not.

Candy seems worried and regretting letting his dog get killed. He just lays on his back staring at the ceiling, when he finially here’s the gunshot, he turns over and closes his eyes.

Comment by taylorrr

Candy is sad, and worried on the inside, but tries to to show his emotions to much on the outside, by turning over and just facing the ceiling, avoiding contact with others.

Comment by busses

Candy is upset about his dead dog because he had him since he was a pup and Candy grew so close to the dog.

Comment by nwantoinette

I think Candy handled his dogs death pretty well. He was silent and just waited until it was done. I think everyone made the right choice even though he did not want his dog to die.

Comment by gdpeter

Candy is really sad for losing his dog because they grew on each other over the years, it was hard for him to let it go. He did and he took it well even though no one really cared about the dog exept him.

Comment by doplato

Candy was sad about the death of his dog, and he wasn’t expecting everyone to pretty much gang up on him to kill his dog.

Comment by knwilliam

Candy was sad on the inside but he wasn’t showing his emotion on the outside when his dog died. Candy was just silent.

Comment by emearhart

Candy was reluctant, but he felt he needed to let it happen; to be tough. I really don’t know why he would’ve let someone kill his dog if he really did love it.

Candy is upset about the death of his dog but he doesn’t really show anyone but George or Lennie.

Comment by jacquiem

I think that Candy was really shocked and depressed about his dog, and he wasn’t expecting that to happen. I don’t think he showed his emotions to anybody because he just layed on the bed and stared at the cieling.

Comment by kligsfosho

Candy was really upset after letting one of they guys shoot his dog. Candy excluded himself from the rest of the group and stayed silent for awhile.

Comment by kaitlinx0

Candy is really sad when Carlson takes his dog outside to shoot him. Candy tries not to show too much emotion, by rolling over on his side and looking at the ceiling.

Candy’s reaction to the death of his dog is sad. He has had that dog ever since he was a puppy and he used to be a good strong dog. To cheer him up Slim offers to let him have one of his dog’s puppies.

What does Candy say when he’s talking to George and Lennie after all of the drama (about his dog’s death)?

Comment by Miss Fowler

Candy’s sad because hes been with that dog for so long that it was hard for him to let go. He had it since he was a pup and he wanted the dog to just die on its own not to kill the dog when it was still alive.

Comment by bschultz123

He did not really do anything but lay on his bed and not talk to anyone.

When the dog is first shot, he won’t speak, he just lays there and stares. He’s upset but he tries to hide it.

Comment by sortisio92

Candy is devastated by the death of his dog, it appeared to be his only true friend. If you analyse Steinbeck’s use of language, it reaveals Candy’s sheer desperation. ‘Silence invaded the room’, very powerful stuff!
