Connor and Chase, and their dogs Oakley and Nadia: Double Fun
Tow-headed twins Chase and Connor live in Largo, Florida. Both six-year-old boys suffer from a form of cerebral palsy know as spastic diplegia, which affects the muscles of the lower body. Connor has a milder form of the disease and can walk, while Chase has a moderate form of the disease that requires him to use a walker.
Oakley and Nadia help the boys with everyday tasks and provide companionship. But Chase has an even bigger goal: He hopes to eventually trade his walker for the support of his labradoodle Oakley, a gentle giant in a dog suit.
