The last weekend of October, Bailie and I had some PR work to do. I am trying to get out to events to promote my new book, but I also like to promote my breed since most people have never seen a GBGV and do not know anything about us. When I am out working I wear my Doodiepack with my book in one pocket and my business cards in the other.
Lucky for me I was contacted by Build a Sign. I was so excited, as they offered to send me some products of my choice to review. I ordered up some business cards and some magnets. I have been sharing a business card with Mom for a long time now and it is finally to the point where I feel I need my own business card, so that is what I ordered. The magnets are just like my business card, only a magnet. People love magnets! Crazy as it sounds, I put my magnets in the candy bowl on Halloween and the kids all wanted one! The cards were easy to design, I submitted my order and received my cards and magnets in no time! Build a Sign did an awesome job – they look great! If you need cards, signs, or other business items, I would definitely recommend Build a Sign.
Bailie has gone to a dog chiropractor a couple times now at the Minnetonka Animal Hospital. They asked Bailie to come to their open house and bring me along. I don’t like to go to any place where vets are for any reason, but I agreed to go with Bailie and Mom for promotional reasons. The clinic is not far from Gramma’s house, so we left Katie off there as three dogs would be a bit too much. The open house was really nice. They had different displays throughout the clinic so we could learn about everything from fleas, to surgery, to therapy. Very informative and well done! You might also notice the leopard bandanas that we are wearing. They passed those out at the open house to. We like the wild look!
We hit the table with the food first off! We grabbed some samples and learned a bit more about food and what would be good for us.
We toured the acupuncture room…poor Scooby, this kind of creeped me out! I asked Bailie if such things happened to her but she assured me that no one had done put needles in her, and the people at the clinic were friendly and gentle.
Here we were back in the car with the bag of goodies they gave us. Yes, Bailie now has her own seat belt, the same kind Katie and I wear, and she does really well with it. Another safe rider in the family.
There was also an event at the Union Depot in St. Paul that I wanted to attend called the Doggy Depot. Since I had just had surgery, Mom did not think I should go, so I sent Bailie in my place. Mom dropped me off at Gramma’s on her way to St. Paul. I told Bailie to pass out lots of my cards and try to promote my book. She was happy to go, but she does not get to wear my DoodiePack because:
- It has my name on it, Emma in clear lettering.
- She is way too small, it would not fit her at all.
- The DoodiePack is mine, end of the discussion.
Bailie sure looked small in that big open room!
Our friends at Sidewalk Dog.com were sponsors of the event, so she stopped by to give them some kisses and loves. If you are in the Twin Cities they are THE place to go for information on dog stuff – events, places to go, reviews, etc.
Picking up after your dog was a big theme at the event, so Bailie posed by one of the signs for me since I am involved with Sugar the Golden Retriever in the #scoopthatpoop campaign. She was a bit embarrassed but Mom talked her into doing it for her sister.
Build a Sign sent My GBGV Life business cards and magnets to review. I did not receive compensation for this review. These are my own opinions based on how I feel about the products I received.
