Curly (a dog)

Character Analysis

It seems like Curly represents the brutality of violence that dogs face in the frozen North. Her most memorable moment in the limelight is when she gets her "face ripped open" by a husky she tried to befriend. Her most memorable moment after that is when she gets torn to pieces. Curly reminds us that life in the wild is extremely difficult. To make a long story short, you do not want to play Curly in your school’s postmodernist realism production of The Call of the Wild.
