In Chapter One, when George and Lennie first appear, George is described "dragging his feet a little the way a bear drags its paws."

When they reach the pool of water Lennie drops to his knees and drinks , "...with long gulps, snorting into the water like a horse." Lennie's hands are referred to as paws again later in the chapter,
