Candy is the oldest person on the ranch. He is missing a hand so he does easy work like sweeping, "I ain't much good with on'y one hand.I lost my hand right here on this ranch. That's why they gave me a job swampin."(Steinbeck, pg 59) Candy has an old dog that he has had since it was a puppy, the dog was dirty and stunk. Candy over hears George and Lennie's plan and asks if he can go to their new farm with them.
