Oakley is soon to be six years old. He is quite the character. His favorite position is on his back with his tummy being rubbed. If you stop, he takes his paw and grabs your hand to start again. He lives with my daughter but comes to visit grandma quite frequently. He loves his "squeaks" toys and couldn't be bothered chasing a ball or a stick. He's definitely not a water dog as we found out on his first boating trip last summer. His favorite spot, if one's available, is someone's lap. He is a loved member of the family and my daughter's prized possession.
