The difference between us.

I think this picture just about sums it all up...


While I am constantly on the go, and checking out my surroundings, Patches will just sit and chill. Sometimes his being so chill makes me look like a total spazz.

While I show my blantant hate for sweaters in the winter months, Patches will proudly parade in one all day if allowed. He must have a circulation problem, or something.

I can control myself when offered a treat, Patches will knock you over and steal it from your mouth if Mama doesn't watch him closely.

Patches poops and pees as soon as he hits grass...I like to sniff for hours before unloading.

I can walk for miles and miles, and Patches begs to be picked up after a few short blocks.

I prefer to hang with dogs who are the same size as me, Patches loves big ol' giant dogs, like labs and rottis!

I like the water, and Patches hates to get wet. (But, he dries much faster than I do!)

Patches respects Mama and Pop's paperwork, but I like to lay all over it.

Patches has (had) fleas, and I don't!!!

Hey, I didn't know you had a younger sibling! That's pawesome! You guys look like you're having fun outside and that sweater looks nice and warm. Too bad I don't need one here in Texas--it's still 90 degrees outiside!

Hi Sparky and Patches!
Wow, you guys are very different! I share some of each of your characteristics! I like to run around and check things out, play in the water (except the tub) and lay on paper, like Sparky. And I like sweaters, knocking people over for treats, peeing quickly, getting carried, and playing with big dogs, like Patches!
Love Clover xo

Patches... it's getting sweater time! My mom makes me wear a Nordic sweater. So humiliating.

Suki & Joey said...

Patches is a lot like Joey in some ways and I'm a lot like you in some ways, too! We're kind of all mixed up ;)

Joey takes FUREVER to pee and poop, it's crazy.

This was a cool post. I might do something like this, soon (and give you credit, of course!)

Puggy kisses
