Of Mice and Men

What does Lennie admit to himself after killing the puppy? What is the dramatic importance of this realization?

Chapter 5 question. I do not understand what the question means by "admit to himself". Lennie doesn't seem to admit anything and he only seems to care about the rabbits, rather than the fact that he killed an animal. Pleease heelllp.

Lennie knows he will never tend the rabbits. Lennie is correct but not in his limited comprehension. Getting in trouble from George is the least of his worries. Lennie's life is effectively over once he has killed Curley's wife.
