At first it appears the Shih Tzu, called Chewy, possibly short for Chewbacca, has all the advantages in trying to pull Winston the Corgi upstairs: the leash, their owner’s encouragement, and a fierce determination to win. But over time, Winston begins to wear him out, using his more significant body mass as anchor and waiting out Chewy’s mighty leash-tugs with firm resolve.

What did Chewy want Winston to join him upstairs for? I suppose we’ll never know. Still, sometimes you have no choice but to bid a friend farewell and go your separate ways.
