Harvey comes back later with a slingshot and hits the dog. Vanessa has had enough of Harvey so she talks to her mother. Vanessa wants to keep the dog inside while Harvey delivers the paper, but her solution couldn t happen since her grandfather didn t want the dog inside. Harvey keeps coming back to the house to torment the dog. Vanessa goes back to her mother and suggests that they reported him to the police. But wouldn t have an effect since Harvey didn t do anything illegal. While they were trying to look for Harvey through a telescope, Harvey stole the telescope. Vaness and her grandfather go to Harvey s house and get the telescope back and say they won t file a police report. Harvey never came back to the house.

4. When does Vanessa s internal conflict come to a head? Is her conflict fully resolved? Explain, including quotes.

Her internal conflict is to keep the dog. Vanessa really wants to keep the dog but since her grandfather was receiving complaints about Nanuk, he wanted the dog out of the house. Vanessa knew there was no point in arguing. It had become inevitable. (12) so she had to abide by the decision.

5. Compare and contrast each of the following pairs. (In other words, find similarities and differences. Use quotes for support. Think mental and physical attributes: actions, words, descriptions).

  • a) Grandfather Connor and Aunt Ada

Both Grandfather Connor and Aunt Ada are taking care of family who experienced the tragic death of another family member

Aunt Ada is more abusive and harmful to Harvey while Grandfather Connor is much calmer and pleasant towards his family.

  • b) Harvey and Nanuk

Harvey and Nanuk don t get along because Harvey believes that Nanuk tried to bite him and so he decided to start attacking Nanuk.

Both disappear from Vanessa s life at the end of the story.

  • c) Vanessa and Harvey
    • Both have a conflict with each other
    • Both were students
    • Both live with relatives

Vanessa believes her Grandfather is mean because he doesn t approve of the dog, but really her Grandfather is not nearly as mean as Harvey s Aunt is towards him (Difference in living situations)

6. Write out two possible themes. Support your themes with 3 ideas or proofs from the story.

How you are raised can determine what you are in the future. Vanessa and Harvey were raised similarly but also had differences. Harvey was also living with relatives just like Vanessa was, but he was raised by an abusive person (Aunt Ada) and living in a bad part of town both of which could have had an influence on how he treated Nanuk. Vanessa, on the other hand, was raised by someone who cared for her and lived in a nice part of town, and although she believed that her grandfather wasn t nice to her, she was in a better spot than Harvey was, and ultimately that showed at the end of the story when Harvey was arrested for 6 years and Vanessa s biggest problem was losing the dog.
