What does Oscar like to do?

Natalie, 3: He takes our socks ... and he tries to get them from us!

Isabella, 5: We try to get them from his mouth but he just plays tug-of-war with them!

How does Oscar fit into family life?

Amy, 37: He loves to go on errands with us. Whenever we're leaving the house he comes right to the door. When the girls haven't seen him they'll say, "I can't wait to see Oscar!"

As a parent, what's the best thing about having Oscar?

Amy: The girls have such a great bond with him. Isabella often asks to help feed him and walk him. I feel like he's taught them to have real compassion. And a real, true love of animals.
