Meet My Furry Friend: Joey

I FINALLY HAVE A PUPPY AGAIN! I have had him for a few months now. I have been waiting for him for quite a long time because he had a bit of a weight issue, he couldn’t leave his mother at the same time as his siblings did. But now that he is with me and I think I have gotten to know him and his little habits over the past months and I can finally write a blog post all about him. 

I want you to meet my furry friend bby Joey!

What is your pet’s name?

Joey’s real name is Joseph. Joey is just his nickname but when I get lazy I also call him Jojo or J. 

How did you come up with the name? Does it have any specific significance?

I love the TV shows Friends and Full House and both shows had a character named Joey. When I first found out I was gonna get Joey I was watching both shows and decided to name him after the characters. And no they are not my favourite characters. No further questions about the topic, please.

How old is your pet?

Joey is 5-months old but he looks like a furry newborn puppy. I kid you not when I say that he still fits inside a shoe box. 

When did you get your pet?

I got Joey last September and he was 3 months old. 

What breed is your pet?

Joey is a toy poodle. I know he doesn’t look like it in the photos but he is.

What is your petsโ€™ favorite food?

Joey isn’t really a picky eater. He will eat anything but right now his favourite is his dog food which is Beef Pro Puppy. He knows when its time to eat and he know where his food is kept. When it’s time to eat he runs to it and just watches me fix his food.

Although when he sees me eat anything, he jumps around like crazy begging me for food. I never give him any though. I don’t want him to get used to getting food from people.

What is your petโ€™s favorite game?

I don’t really know. We don’t play games. But he does love his rope ball toy. I don’t really know what it’s called but you can see it on his Instagram. The ball part of the toy is too big and he can’t bite it so he just plays with the rope part. 

What is your favorite thing to do together? 

Joey and I love to take naps–during road trips, weekend afternoons, etc. If we can nap, we nap. 

Do you go outdoors? If yes, where is your favourite place to go together?

We do go outdoors for peepees and poopoos. I don’t think he has a favourite place but he runs around our garage and front lawn like a crazy dog. So does that count as a favourite place?

What is the hardest thing about being a pet owner?

The hardest thing about having a pet is waking up super early. Joey wakes up at 3 to 4am to make peepees and since he sleeps on my bed, he wakes me up to let me know and I have to get up and bring him to his peepee spot. His next wake up time is at 6am. This time it’s for breakfast, peepees and poopoos. This happens every. single. day. Weekends included. Long gone are the days where I can sleep in. 

What is the best thing about your pet?

Joey isn’t my first pet. To be honest, I’ve had loads before but Joey is the most I am attached too. One reason being he is super clingy so I literally can’t leave a room without him making a fuss about it but I just love him so much. He is so excited when he sees me and it really makes me feel like he loves me. I have waited for Joey for so long and I am happy to have him around. OMG, I miss him now.
