Oakley~~~~~not Annie Oakley!


This is Oakley!


4 month old Valley Bull


A mix, a cross between an English Bull Dog and a Boxer


So you can see Oakley is taller than a English Bull


and more squat than a Boxer.

   
So friendly and joyful


and oh so inquisitive


 see what I mean Oakley is sniffing my mouth


OK Oakley I may not have the sweetest breath
 but come on you don't have to close your eyes


You want to play, don't you!


I know exactly what you are getting at with that stance 




Oh so, a Chocolate Lab wants to join in, that's just fine


Oakley certainly has learned a lot today from me and CL


Well, SuperDoggy Oakley better catch up to his owner 
or we might just have to take him home with us!

    1. Sophie says: SO DO I!!!! I want them all too~~~~is that greedy or hoarding? Either way, I end up with what I want/need! Valley Bulls are most commonly found in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia where my Daddy Ron grew up.
      You get the best of 2 worlds with this doggy~~~~~Boxer's athletic ability and Bulldog's courage and unwavering spirit.
      Now I have to keep showing the Dads how much I enjoy other dogs~~~~~this is my ploy!

  7. Oakley's looks like a pretty cute pup.The Daddy's aren't looking to expand the family are they Sophie or is Daddy Ron just kidding about taking Oakley home?

    1. Daddy Ron is the biggest kidder ever, Jen! He is dog lover so any 4 legger that shows affection towards him becomes his new and most favourite doggy ! He is easy! Don't tell JIMBO!!!

    1. I try my best to start the encounter off with me in charge~~~~I learned this way back when I was little~~~~only way I could protect my little self. SO Oakley seemed to understand and was willing to test me a few times~~~~I just use my DoodleGrowl and Oakley understood~~~~no more of that craziness!

    1. Hey IngerDoodle~~~~Jim's been hinting for months that Sophie needs a sista/bro~~~~well this little feller almost sealed he deal!

  12. What a cute little pup! I'm sure Oakley is going to grow up to be a pretty good sized playmate, it's a good thing you used that DoodleGrowl to tell him you are in charge!

  13. She's a cutie! Pups are fun to play with but sometimes don't have the best manners. Glad you were able to teach her some things.

    1. Every day is a teaching moment with me it seems! So many SuperSniffers and NosyPoseyDoggies always putting their schnauze where it shouldn't be! I'll take care of them though!

    1. Hi Alex.....it's been a week since last we connected....hope all's a little better for you and your Mom and friends Hubby!

      Owen, I believe is doing well...haven't seen since before Xmas....probably have a grand time meeting new doggies all the time. I have to check!

      Oakley will be as big as a boxer, I'm guessing....fingers crossed that we will see him again...no guarantee though! We see so many dogs different dogs every time we go to the park.

      Have a great day!

    My Mom is doing ok... She is sad, but life goes on. *sigh* Thomas, my friends hubby, is doing really great. *pheeeeeew* He makes slowly progress: goes with Andrè the hall up and down at the hospital and grumbles about all and nothing :))))! Hey, at the moment he can get away with anything. We are all just glad he is alive. Oh my! 15 minutes later... *pheeeeeew* Life can be short!!! Wahaaa!!!!!

    Boxer are lovley doggies. Bestes buddy of my dog was a boxer lady :)))... She was a sweetheart...

    Ok, time to get ready for bed. 4.00 h my alarm goes off. *yawns*

  22. What a cute new friend, Sophie.
    I hope that you and Oakley get to play again.
    I like your new header, Sophie. Mr. Orange looks quite fetching too.
    I hope you and dads are enjoying a good weekend!

    1. Hi Louise~~~~Oakley is so young and has so much to learn~~~~I most assuredly will help in that department if need be. Ron's changing my header again~~~~he gets so bored and thus new pictures! Oh I don't mind~~~~he can do whatever he wants as long as he feeds me!

    2. Well, Sophie, at least I can go back and look at all your beautiful headers under those tabs at the top of your blog. Can Ron help it if you're such a photogenic girl?
      Maybe Ron should make some of those homemade doggie cookies that Ivan made Aston. They looked like good eating. As a matter of fact, I think Ivan said he ate some himself!
      Have a great walk today, Sophie!

  23. Three wonderful beauties! I'm glad you've made such a joyful friend, Sophie. One can never have too many of them. Friends are meant to be cherished and loved.. but of course you know that! I don't need to say it, do i? lol. (I know, i just did.. but you know.. sometimes i babble.)

  25. My mummy just finally remembered to check out Sohpie`s blog, I`ve been reminding her for days! I feel pretty special that I got to be on here with you Sophie! I hope I get to run into you in the park again someday. My mummy takes me there quite a bit. Oh and I am going to be about 55-60lb when I grow up, just a little shorter and stalkier than a boxer but thinner and taller than an english bulldog. Thanks for the play!

    1. OH HI Oakley and Oakley's Mom!!!!
      Everyone was so interested in your breed/mix Oakley. It was so great to play with you and I'm sure we'll run into one another again. We had a cool time didn't we. The trails are pretty slippery right now...Daddy Ron fell the other day....I licked him and he got up and proceeded along. Humans need a lot of help you. I think you'll be able to help out plenty when you get older.
      So happy you came by and Cheers!

      Sophie Doodle!!
