Ollie and Luna are the dogs of Creative Threads Owner Barbara Buckman and her husband Dave. They come into the Wake Forest yarn shop and are the official mascots, store greeter and shop celebrities.
Ollie and Luna are West Highland White Terriers, known as Westies—a breed originally from Scotland.
Ollie was born June 17, 2014 and the Buckmans fell in love with this little fellow. As they were awaiting to bring him home, they discovered Luna. Luna was born blind in another litter (they are not brother & sister) on June 7, 2014.
Barbara and Dave decided to adopt her as well and Ollie & Luna have been inseparable ever since.
They love to play fetch with customers in the store and share their toys. Or, if you’re not a dog person, they’ll try to leave you alone.
They are friendly with adults and children alike and greet all visitors to Creative Threads with wagging tails.
