Joey "Deez" Blog “Pets”

August 18, 2016

We’re getting close to Pain in the Grass and the weather is already giving us a sneak peek of what looks to be a bright and sunny weekend setting the stage for an awesome Pain2016. But what does Pain in the Grass have to do with pets? Last year Motley Zoo Animal Rescue brought a bunch of puppies for the Artists and back stage crew to hang out with when they had some free time. Man’s best friend is a great way to get people pumped up for a show not to mention settle the mind before hitting the main stage. Pets are so lovable they quickly become part of the family and are often the best source of stress relief you can ask for. So this got me thinking, if I could have any animal as a pet right now, what would it be?


Back when I was a kid, all I wanted was a Chinchilla. I have no idea why I wanted one so bad, maybe because it looked like a giant ball of fur, but I thought it would be the coolest pet. I never got one, instead I got a hamster. Smart move by my parents because as it turns out, I got bored of that hamster quick and gave it to my sister. That was young Joe though, now I would go for a much bigger pet. If I could have any animal as a pet I would choose a tiger. Just think Life of Pi with less traveling and more pizza. I’d have one of those friendly tame tigers though that likes to chill and take naps. But it would also double as a body guard because who wants to fight a tiger? BJ’s not a fan of pets so I don’t think he would want me bringing it around his house but it’s not like you can really say no to a tiger at the front door. Plus I have a key. I’ll probably never get a tiger, but hey, one can dream!


Do you have a pet? What is your dream pet? ​
