Operation Love on Olaf

Update posted by Samantha Driedger On Sep 14, 2017

hey everybody! I just got the most exciting text from Danielle!

"Ahhh!!!!! We just got a call that Olaf was taken off oxygen and is holding steady and we can take him home today!!!! 💗He still has a very severe case of pneumonia and will need to go in for lots of vet appointments, X-rays, etc., but they says that now that he can eat and breathe on his own, the best place for him to be is home. Obviously they are open 24/7 if we need to go back but yay!!! He made a turn around out of nowhere but we're not complaining!"

We cannot begin to express how thankful we are for everybody's support. Olaf still has a long road ahead of him, and more vet visits (which means bills), but now he gets to be at home where he is most comfortable and can receive all of the love from Danielle and Wes!!

We will be keeping the campaign going, as, like I said, the vet bills will still be coming, but this is a step in the right direction

"We have an internal medicine dr taking a look at Olaf today. The vet is worried that he's not progressing as fast as he should if he were going to live so they are testing a few different things to see if there could be something else going on. His X-rays on his lung were a little worrying so they are sending them to a specialist to look at to make sure an air pocket hasn't developed. If it has, there is a chance his lung could collapse. They are also doing a test for fungal rare infections but we won't have results for around 10 days. Additionally they're looking for a potential ciliary condition that is genetic and could be causing him the inability to cough up stuff as much as he should be."


Please continue to share this campaign, as all these tests unfortunately also mean more vet bills for Danielle and Wes, and send love and prayers for Olaf!! Our little man is definitely a fighter 💕

Hello everyone! I just had a REALLY nice visit with Danielle this afternoon, getting an update on Olaf.

As of this morning, Olaf's white blood cell count has raised a bit (which is AMAZING, as his blood cell count was originally nonexistant before), and he even stood up on his own and responded to his name. Our boy still had a long road ahead of him, but they're starting to see his body fight back.

Over the past few days, we've all been completely blown away by everyone's support. Between donations, reposts and well wishes, this community has had Olaf's back. So thank you so much!

Danielle and Wes have started a map filled with hearts on all of the places Olaf has received love from! If you want to stay updated, check out his Instagram account (@olaf_thesamoyed)!

To anyone who may have messaged them asking for updates or to send your love, please be aware that their inbox has been FLOODING with messages, and because their focus is on Olaf at the moment, they may not be able to get back to everyone. For updates, keep an eye on his story, or on here, as we will try to update often whenever there is new information 💕


Thank you again so much!

From Danielle this morning:

"His breathing seems to have stabilized a bit since last night and we got him to eat 4-5 tbs of high calorie food this morning! It has to be hand fed but it's good. The vet has also been doing chest compressions and they were able to get him to cough some things up out of the lungs this morning."

So good to hear our boy is slowly taking a few steps forward!

To everyone who has recently joined the updates/donated, THANK YOU!

Just heard from Danielle again.

Olaf's breathing has gotten worse, but even with that, he was able to eat about a tablespoon of baby/puppy food for the first time in 48 hours! This is a small step, but the main concern is still his breathing. Lets continue to send our thoughts and prayers to Danielle, Wes and Olaf <3

Again and again, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! You guys have honestly blown me away with your support!!

Does Olaf need any blood transfusions? What is his blood type? Maybe someone nearby can bring their dog in to help? I woukd come with my guys hut kramer just donated yesterday and Endo stopped donating once he was diagnosed wjth atypical addisons. Perhaps finding someone who will do an immediate blood donation can cut down some costs?

Our little man is still fighting. Despite having levels dropped over night, he's still pushing on, and opened his eyes this morning. We're really hoping his stats pick up over the next bit, and he's able to eat some food!


Thank you to everyone who's donated and who's shared! The support has been amazing! 💕💕

So Olaf is still in the emergency vet, but he is on antibiotics, antiinflammtories, fluids and oxygen! They are hoping that an evening of medication will improve his situation some, as he is currently septic and on life support. We are blown away by the support so far!! Thank you all so much

Dear Olaf and parents, when we started Felix' Instagram we immediately found Olaf's profile. Even though there are so many Sammys on Instagram, we could never forget his photos wearing a tie in front of a white background. Hopefully he will get better soon. We wish you a lot of strength and send you our love. Sven, Julia & Felix
