Behind the Scenes at the Joe Stains blog
It is Joe's Mom here, since Joey and Tanner have decided to up and go to South Africa I am left to entertain you guys. I thought I would give a little insight into their 'personalities'.
Joe Stains is really and truly GRUMPY 95% of the time. He does not like to be held, he does not like to be bothered at all. He will come to you if he wants to see you or if he wants to be pet. He does get very excited and happy when we first come home and when it is time to eat. He also really likes guests for the first 30 minutes they are here. Other than that he likes to do 'his own stuff' as his Dad always says. If you try to pet him or bother him when he is off on his own he makes this low straining noise in his throat like we are torturing him. I know a lot of people say that Joey really does love Tanner and he'd be sad without him, but I really don't think he'd bat an eye if Tanner left and never came back.
Tanner is the sweetest, goofiest, snuggliest little dog I have ever known. He is always glued to my side and sleeps right next to me every night. And yes friends, he really is a Doofus. He runs into walls, falls out of bed, runs right into the room I am in with treasures he has stolen from the trash. He forever is trying to get Joey to be his friend and play with him, and he forgives him every time Joe gets mad and tells him off.
I never imagined 2 dogs of the same breed being so incredibly different. Hopefully tomorrow Tanner sends me a text or some pics so I can do a better and more interesting update.
