You gave me a great idea in our last correspondence about keeping him entertained during the day when I'm at work with my next door neighbor's dog, Lucy. She and Oscar are total BFF's. I wish I had a good picture of the two of them together because as I mentioned last time they look like twins (she is an apricot Cavapoo about 5 months younger than him). My dog walker walks my neighbors dog as well, so we asked her to start walking the dogs together and she did one better for us and offered to let them have an extra 30 minutes of play time together during each walk! So now he is getting over an hour of playtime with his BFF on the days I am not working from home and when I am home he knows the sound of our dog walkers car beep when she locks her car and knows exactly when she is here to get Lucy next door and immediately runs to the door crying until I let him out to see both of them :) So needless to say he is finally getting tired out during the day and I was able to get him a dog bed for his crate that he doesn't chew!
Our next training activity that I am trying to tackle is turning him into a running dog so we can go on runs together. By no means am I a "runner" but when I start to pick up the pace with a jog he is so easily distracted by everyone and everything around him he has to stop and check everything out :) So we are working on that now, but in the meantime very much enjoy taking long walks together in the afternoon especially now that the weather is much nicer!
I thought you of all people would appreciate the other two pictures I attached: Oscar on my mom's lap on the car ride home when we picked him up at 8 weeks old,......
.... and then Oscar on my mom's lap on our car ride to the beach at 2....you can see he is just a little bit bigger now for her lap in the car :)
Every time I check out your blog I am absolutely amazed at how long your waiting lists are!! But I guess I can't say I am truly that surprised because you breed such wonderful and loving dogs so its only natural everyone wants one!! I only hope in another couple years the list has dwindled so we can get back on and get a little sister or brother for Oscar! Hope you and your family are all doing well and good luck with the upcoming spring litter!!

Thanks so much for your update and all these beautiful photos! Oscar looks like he is having a really good life with you! And I am soooo happy that he has a good buddy in the Cavapoo! I know it must be so much fun to watch those two dogs play! I know Coco and Misty love romping around in our back yard for hours on end Dogs sure enjoy having a playful companion.
I am glad you posted the pictures of Oscar in the car as a puppy and in the car today! Wow! He is all grown up isn't he!
Best wishes, to you both! We sure love having updates!
