Rescue Owners Are Rockin’
Ashley wrote a lovely R.O.A.R. Squad email so I am just going to basically share with you what she wrote (all I did was add the snazzy headings). Enjoy!
My name is Ashley of the blog The Accidental Olympian, and my pooch is Oly. I am a marketing guru by day, and a blogger by night/whenever I can squeeze it in.
What: My boyfriend and I adopted Oly from Adopt-A-Pet in Shelton, WA which is an amazing no kill shelter near the WA state capital of Olympia, WA.
Breed: Oly is the quintessential MUTT. We believe that she is a lab/whippet, but we don’t have much more to go on other than her striking body type and her desire to RUN. Oly might also be 25% human, but sadly there isn’t a DNA test for that.
Adopt-A-Pet Rocks: Oly was dropped off in a shoe box at 3 weeks old, at the time her eyes weren’t even fully open. She was nursed back to health by the shelter volunteers, and my boyfriend and I met her at 5 weeks, fell in love and adopted her at 8 weeks. Without the dedication of the shelter staff (3am feedings!) Oly would have never made it into our lives.
Another sumthin’ sumthin’: Ashley put together a seriously charming video about “all the quirks that make up Miss Oly.” My personal fav is Oly Sitting Like a Human. You gotta check it out- go here to watch the video. Go now!
