Kate and Olaf — January 28, 2022

Kate and Olaf

~ Kate and Olaf ~

Four years ago, Kate welcomed Olaf into her home. In the time they’ve been together, they have formed such a strong bond and have improved each other’s lives. 

Kate has always loved animals. In 2017, she heard of a Samoyed pup and fell instantly in love. She adopted him soon after and named him Olaf. 

When she first met Olaf, Kate knew he was a perfect dog for her family. He had such a sweet face and he was very affectionate. She couldn’t resist adopting him and, ever since, they’ve become the best of friends. 

Since having Olaf, Kate’s life has been hugely improved. No matter what may be happening in her life, Olaf can always make her smile. He just seems to sense when she needs a bit of comfort or support and does all he can to cheer her up. Whether that’s bringing her a toy or a nice warm snuggle. 

Those who meet Olaf when he’s out and about are delighted to see him. On Kate’s more challenging days, spending time with Olaf makes her feel so much better. He encourages her to go outside, to be active and to focus her attention on just him. 

They both love being in each other’s company. One of their favourite things to do together is going for walks and hikes. Exploring new places and enjoying nature is something they enjoy doing. They have also been trying out paddleboarding! This is something they’ve found to be another great way to spend time together. 

The bond that Kate and Olaf share is so strong. Olaf has brought so much happiness and joy into Kate’s life, and she has enriched his life since adopting him. 

Sunita and Elmo — March 1, 2021

Sunita and Elmo

~ Sunita and Elmo ~

12 years ago, Sunita met her best friend, Elmo.  During this time, the two have become close friends and support each other in their daily lives.  

In 2008, Sunita sadly lost her first dog.  After this, she felt like there was something missing from her life.  One day, she was on the internet and discovered an adoption site.  There, she came across Fendi, a white Samoyed puppy.  Sunita fell instantly in love with him and decided to adopt him and give him a new name – Elmo.  

Since adopting Elmo, Sunita has noticed a positive impact on her life.  Unfortunately, she went through a difficult break-up and had the challenge of her parents’ divorce.  Both times, Elmo was right there for her.  He would sit outside her bedroom door, sit beside her in her room and would simply just keep her company.  To Sunita, this was Elmo’s way of letting her know he was there for her. 

Having Elmo in her life, Sunita has learnt patience – especially during training sessions – and has gained so much happiness from having Elmo in her life.  As well as this, Sunita has learnt so much from Elmo.  She has learnt that there is always a silver lining and to smile, all thanks to Elmo.  

Both Sunita and Elmo enjoy the outdoors.  They are often out and about, going on their next adventure together.  When they are out, Elmo is always excited to meet his friends during pack walks but is often anxious around those he isn’t familiar with.  Their favourite place to go together is the beach.  Elmo loves to swim and play in the water.  He also enjoys going for car rides with his human.  They two obviously share a close bond and feel happy when in each others’ company.  

Elmo has brought Sunita so much happiness and has taught her a lot.  Elmo’s goofy personality and an almost permanent smile never fail to brighten Sunita’s day.  

While, unfortunately, Elmo is going blind due to age, it doesn’t stop him from living his life to its fullest.  He still enjoys being active but also is very happy to rest and have cuddles with his human!

Because of how much Elmo has helped Sunita, she has started her own business called ‘For a Pawpose’.  Through this, Sunita makes and sells lovely products, such as candles, poo bag holders, kids clothing and other handmade items.  Not only does she sell amazing products, but she also donates part of the proceeds made from every order to an animal organisation or rescue.  

It is obvious how much Sunita and Elmo care for one another.  They have been there for each other through tough times and have enjoyed the great times together.  Their bond is so strong.  They bring joy to each others’ lives and lift one another up, even during challenging times.
