Oakley leads the way

By Melissa Chung

Niall, the founder of the Facebook page “Docklands Doggies”, likes organising play dates for his two-year-old Pointer cross Oakley and other Docklands dogs.

“Docklands Doggies” is a Facebook group that networks Docklands dog owners to help each share the care of their pooches.

Oakley, who looks like one of the dogs in the Disney movie 101 Dalmatians, is enjoying himself as the little leader of the group.

Niall and Oakley have become each other’s “partner-in-crime” through organising group events. As an example, they have organised dog walking and play dates at Brighton Beach.

“He’s a good swimmer. He can swim from 250 to 500 metres,” Niall said proudly.

Oakley has brought plenty of happiness to Niall through his unique behaviour.

“His special talent is making me laugh,” he said.

According to Niall, Oakley loves to scratch his back by surfing on his back down the hill at Docklands Park.

“It’s an hysterical scene to see him rolling around. He’s a character,” Niall said.

However, Niall does have a love-hate relationship with Oakley.

“He destroyed a carpet and a sofa in my apartment. But that’s okay. He’s adorable,” he said.

Oakley’s ridiculous behaviour never stops Niall from loving him due to the Pointer cross’s proficient flattering skills.

“He likes to just lean on my lap. He loves being my companion,” Niall said.
