Meet Olie - Store Mascot & Representative for "Chase Away K9 Cancer" Program


Olie is the resident Labrador that comes to work here at BMW every day.  He loves to meet as many customers as possible and he makes the staff here at the store smile.  He also saves me a daily trip by taking paperwork from my office to the office upstairs.


While Olie brings so much joy to my workplace, he is also a part of a very special cause away from work.  I started a non-profit fund called "Chase Away K9 Cancer" named after Olie's Great Grandmother Chase, who I lost to cancer back in 2006.  Chase Away K9 Cancer is 100% volunteer run and to date, we have raised over a million dollars and helped to fund 21 K9 cancer studies, all while raising awareness of the illness.  Just like Chase, Olie has become a talented dock jumping competition dog.  After he competes, we slip on his donation vest which crowds are happy to stuff with money as he greets and loves on his fans. 


So far this year, Olie has competed in one event, earning him 8 blue ribbons.  He is currently ranked #3 in the world and the #1 Black Labrador in the world.  He has also claimed the Xtreme Air Dogs Championship title for the past 4 years.


Olie's talents have allowed him to compete all around Oregon and Washington and with the help of BMW Portland, he will be able to attend the upcoming GoPro games in Vail.  Once there, he will be jumping and doing live video feeds using #Olie_Cam, as well as helping me run the Chase Away K9 Cancer booth.  He's been my main spokes-dog for the campaign and is a great ambassador.
