Hal decided to challenge Shandy this evening – I think he wanted to see how much Shandy wants to be our pack leader. But I don’t think he was quite expecting what happened next – with one paw, Shandy had him on his back. He challenged a second, third, fourth and fifth time, and each time Shandy floored him with just one paw. How does he do that? – after all Hal is twice his length, height and weight. I just hope that Hal doesn’t make Shandy pay for it if / when he does finally take over as our pack leader.
