Well looka here, Slim. I been Thinking Candy's dog is so god damn old.....Why'n't you give him one
Chapter 3 pg 47
Lennie is that the pup
Ah No George, I just wanted to keep pettin it.
George and Lennie's friendship isn't the best but Friendships aren't always perfect, because without Lennie being a doofus at times we would see George's short temper
Friends need to look after one another so Carlson talked to Slim, saying why Candy should get one of the new pups.
Lennie doesn't always understand what it means to be selfish he does what he thinks is right at that time, but in a friendship you have to give more than you take. Lennie takes the pup into the bunkhouse and George gets angry and tells him to bring it back before they get in trouble.
