One of Our Favorites: Miss Goofus and Mr Gallant

It was this post that actually made me laugh the most. The best part: our pooches just give us this material and all we do is report it. We're currently working on Part II.

It was just the other day that I had the epiphany: our pooches were just like Goofus and Gallant from Highlights magazines. These characters look similar, but they aren't twins. Gallant is always nice and respectful, while Goofus just does whatever he wants. Let me show you what I mean.
Mr. B is appreciative and happy to be bathed:
While Miss M lets them know they aren't working hard enough:
Mr. B enjoys laying contemplatively by the flowers:
While Miss M is critical of our decorating decisions:
 Mr. B is loyal and loves spending time with his family:
While Miss M is always interviewing and campaigning for a new home:
In most dog duos, will there always be a Goofus and a Gallant? Or does anyone have the misfortune to have 2 Goofuses?

Most of the dog pairs I know seem to be opposites of each other. That's interesting!

Loved the photo of Miss M interviewing new humans to live with. All the pairs of pictures are so funny.

Happy New Year.

Amazing - looking at my dogs, we definitely have a Miss Goofus and Mr Gallant. My Ben is a gentleman, always loyal, very sensitive, and obedient. Little Jazz is not so brilliant, naughty, very opinionated, and so on. Great comparison :)
