Meet Oakley: Oakley is something special here. She's our first dog that we're keeping that was born on our soil. It's been so fun having an older pup here on our farm again. She brings such young, fun energy back into our pack. We picked her obviously for confirmation of the breed, but also for what was best for our pack here. We wanted a girl who wouldn't disrupt our pack order and who would be submissive and respectful to her elders.
She's been SUCH A JOY to us!! We're a bit smitten; can you tell?? AND, boy, it's been beautiful to watch momma Denali get to raise her daughter. They ADORE each other and it's the sweetest thing ever to watch them play with each other or watch Denali patrol the field and have sweet Oakley tailing behind her watching and mimicking her mommas movements and barks...always watching and learning. My favorite is checking in on the cameras and catching them snoozing together. Oakley is always snuggled up close usually with her head on mom. I often ask Denali if she's ready for an Oakley break when I let Oakley run around with me during farm chores around the barnyard. Denali seems to say "YES! PLEASE! She's exhausting!" Haha!
Fun Fact: When thinking of a name for Oakley, we struggled a little bit. It felt like THIS name had a bit more 'weight' to it, if you will. After all, she's our very first pup we've kept from our litters here. We wanted a name that somehow represented us, but also kept within our nature themed names of all our dogs. One day while walking on one of our tree trails on or property, Kelly crunched an acorn under her shoe. It was at that moment that she put it al together and the name came to her. "The Oaks Handpicked Acorn, Oakley" An acorn being the 'seed' from the Oak tree allowing natures cycle of life to continue onto the next generation. Pretty 'pyr'fect, if we do say so ourselves. Also proving that a walk in the woods can solve almost any problem!
