well ithink this is the answer for your qusetion .
A theme is a specific statment that branches off the subject and is supported through the story. In order to find one theme, I can ask myself what statement the story makes about selfishness. Based on the story, I can say that selfish people do not always pay for their selfishness, but others do. The narrator was not hurt (physically) because of his selfishness, but Doodle died because of it.

The theme can be that sometimes pride can reason in life or death.

The theme is that the brother had too much pride in teaching Doodle to walk, run etc. and he couldn't just accept the fact that Doodle wasn't physically or mentally strong enough to do all that.

How about this-too much pride can make us treat those we love in cruel ways.
