It’s the Alpha Dog Challenge!
Well, sort of.
Here we have Josie in a tug-of-war throwdown with Brinkley, our Golden Retriever and the canine matriarch of the household. Not a great picture, but it illustrates the difficulty of capturing Josie in a motionless moment and also shows her current size relative to the resident big dog.
It’s a classic match-up: youth and speed versus experience and weight. Who won? I’m not sure, but I expect the only way Josie emerged victorious is if Brinkley got fed up and quit–she doesn’t have much patience with the young whippersnapper.
