How adopted: From a Big Dog Rescue adoption day at PetSmart


Unusual characteristics/special talents: Sometimes he gets so excited and starts running so fast all around the yard or the house that he looses his footing and does a full body roll or slides into the furniture, but he just jumps up and keeps going. I am not sure this counts as a special talent, but I’m pretty sure he thinks he’s a badass.”


Why Tally Top Pet? “Because everyone loves Mr. Oats.”

Our Observation: He has a brother named Hall (later also adopted), which means Mr. Oats — one letter short of Oates — rocks.
