Lennie believes that he will someday be able to tend the rabbits. Unfortunately, George places limitations on whether he'll be able to attain this dream and caring for the puppy was one of them.

As for another way in which life didn't go as planned; george, Lennie, Crooks, and Candy allow themselves to dream about their own place. This dream also dies when Lennie accidently kills Curly's wife.
