I ought to shoot that dog myself George

This foreshadows what George will have to do to Lennie when he has to kill Lennie and can't let the other men kill him painfully. George can't simply make the Same mistake as candy.

I wish someone would shoot me when they can me here

He feels lonely and like his dog he feels he wants the same fate. He now knows that he has nothing to live for his dog was everything to him and now the dog is gone his job will probably be taken from him as he is useless. But when the dream comes along with George and Lennie he has a new love and wants the dream to last.

I ain't got no relatives or nothing

This again shows how alone he is like the other men he has no one to live for and shows that no one really Cares about him and so if he dies then he would leave his share of the "dream" to Lennie And George.

You an me can get the little place can't we George

This shows that candy has developed love for the dream and doesn't want it to end just because Lennie couldn't be part of it. He doesn't seem to realise that the dream started because of Lennie and can't really happen without Lennie and so the dream has to end.
