Very early into our relationship, we always knew that we wanted a dog. It was just never the right time.
We were students, we were travelling and we did not have a stable place to call home.
Fast forward a few years later, we are married, and we have a place to call our own but now we are working and just do not have the time to care for a little one.
Since lockdown, I have been working from home and we saw an opportunity for us to get a puppy. That is when I began googling. We were not particular about the breed but only that it is an hypoallergenic dog as we both have allergies.
We have looked at shelters but had no luck and my sister suggested the breed Bichon Frise. When I googled the breed, it was love at first sight! We knew there and then that we are set on a Bichon Frise.
After a month of googling, we finally found a Bichon Frise for us. At 4 weeks we went to visit the breed and at 8 weeks we took him home with us.
World, meet Olaf.
We really thought long and hard about his name. One day when we were re-watching Frozen, seeing Olaf the snowman-I was immediately inspired. Olaf from Frozen is my favourite character, he is so cute and sweet. Especially how he introduces himself, “Hi, I am Olaf and I like warm hugs!” and I think it is so fitting for our little white fluff.
