Arrival Story:
After bringing home his brother Shaka, we realized that Shaka needed a companion. Luckily, the breeder had a 2 yr old male brindle champion that she was looking for a good home. We scheduled to meet this brindle at an upcoming dog show in Fairfield so he and Shaka could sniff each other out. Billy was a good-lookin', tough, unneutered guy who did not take to Shaka -- that was that. But the breeder noted that she still had Shaka's littermate brother, Yoda who she may be looking for a new home. She stated that he "doesn't look like he'll turn out for the show ring because his topline was not straight enough... he looks like he's always walking downhill." She named him Yoda because Star Wars was re-released the month he was born and she thought he looked wise, a brother was named Chewey. We were excited and jumped at the chance. With Shaka in tow, we drove back down to Fresno to meet Yoda, who was the alpha of the pack among his 2 other siblings (who went on to become champions). We brought Yoda home and it seemed as if Shaka was torchering poor Yoda -- constantly chomping on Yoda's neck & pinning him down, despite the fact that Yoda is much bigger than his brother. We consulted with the breeder, the vet and the trainer -- all of whom stated they were working out who was to be the alpha. Well, it was soon settled. Shaka was the alpha and have been so for almost 8 years now. But every now and then, Yoda will exert his dominance with Shaka, which makes me wonder -- maybe Yoda is simply allowing Shaka to be the alpha, as it is within his easy-going nature.
