With a fluffy coat of curly hair and an outgoing personality, OLA! (yep, the exclamation point is part of her name) has gained celebrity status throughout the city of Cullman, AL. She’s a Goldendoodle (with an extra oodle of charm!) who works as a greeter at Werner’s Trading Company.
The iconic general merchandise store sells “everything that’s awesome,” ranging from apparel, to recreational gear to specialty beer and wine, and even beekeeping supplies. (OLA! might want to point you to the kayaks that have enough room in them for pups!) The second-generation family store is owned by Rob Werner, with his wife Mary Ellen Werner and their friendly dog OLA! helping run the business.
We reached out to OLA! for an interview about life in Cullman, which was arranged by her publicist (and close friend) Amy Seymore.
