After a very long search, Olaf has found his forever home! And we could not be happier! From Olaf’s foster mom Vicki, who has loved, trained and spoiled Olaf preparing him for this happy day…
“Today we met Olaf’s new dad, we got to the meeting spot early so Olaf could burn off energy playing. I was nervous, as attached as Olaf had gotten with me that he might growl or be hesitant with meeting someone new but boy I have never been so wrong in my entire life. The minute his new dad Conor got out of his jeep Olaf took off running to him like he knew exactly who this new guy was. Conor wrapped his arms around Olaf like they were destined to be together and a bond was immediately formed that will never be able to be broken. Conor stood up to say hi to us and Olaf assumed that meant it was time to go and jumped in his new jeep and never looked back! We said our goodbyes and got in my car only to look back to see new dad Conor taking selfies with Olaf in his jeep, this made me smile more than anything because it told me that Olaf will be the center of this man’s life from now until the day he leaves this world. I immediately started bawling like a baby as we drove away and took to editing his pictures to take my mind off this Foster Mom job that I love so much but still have a tough time with Adoption Day. It took one picture to dry those tears up, Conor squatted down with Olaf’s squishy face in his hands and Olaf giving his new dad his first slobbery kiss of many to come. I took about 50 pictures as I always do and I promise you only about 3 off those 50 did Conor actually look away from Olaf, he could not stop looking at his new best friend and that to me is the greatest reward of this job. To be a part of creating a relationship so pure and full of love is something I will never get tired of. Here’s to the many adventures of Conor and Olaf, I can’t wait for the updates of the Adventures between a boy and his dog!”
Thank you Vicki for everything you’ve done for Olaf – you are an amazing Foster Mom and we are forever thankful you are part of our team. And CONGRATULATIONS to Conor and Olaf!
