Oakley's Gotcha Day

Hi everyone, today is my gotcha day! One year ago today my mom picked me up from the breeder people.

Mom takes care of a young adult who has Autism, named Andy. Andy's parents are both doctors and sometimes they have to work a lot, therefore my mom has to work a lot sometimes. So they let her take Swisher and I to work with her, they love dogs but don't really have time for their own. They are the people who paid for me to live with mom. She weaseled her way into an early Christmas present. Two months early! This is one of the first pictures mom saw of me, the breeder people called me Eric. The rest of the pictures are from the first few days of being with my new family.

(Swish and I were Firefighters for Halloween last year.)

Mom says she doesn't remember life without me. Sometimes she says that when she's frustrated with me though. Bol. But I know she loves me so so so much. My brother Swisher loves me too, well most of the time. That last picture was him admiring me on my first day at my new home.

Hope everyone has a great week.
Lots of Licks--
