As the studios ambassadors and official greeters, Jones does all the drooling and Bates does all the wiggling. Smith, the mature black one, started at Bluegreen as a puppy and after nine years had studio life down pat before he retired. Jones, the yellow one, came to Bluegreen as a mid-level studio member and with Smith as his close mentor, he now fits in extraordinarily well. Bates, the little (and not so little) black one, is an intern just learning the ropes. Outside of the studio, Jones loves to retrieve everything and anything...which he then quickly demolishes. Bates is enthralled with his big brother and just does whatever he does.
