Furthermore the windmill debate lead to the exile of snowball by napoleon. “They dashed straight for snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws” This shows that even before the windmill had come into play napoleon had reared these puppies to be aggressive dogs and to get rid of snowball.
