It was developed by Randy Crutcher and Barb Horn - both amigos of mine.
Out skiing two years ago they came up with the idea of producing a whimsical deck of cards and guide book with some of the things they had learned from - and through - dogs over the years.
Some are hysterical.
Some are almost Buddha-like.
All are very well done.
The deck has 62 different images of dogs in various settings and poses portraying a theme like Passion, Purpose, Balance, Cooperation, Breakthrough - even Boredom.
You probably didn't think dogs get bored. They do...
Each card has a phrase that is also in the guidebook to share a little deeper dog wisdom.
The Kickstarter Campaign underway right now is to help fund the first printing - and to get these cards into stores. The campaign has 15 days left to run.
If you know a dog lover, are a dog lover, know someone who you think should be a dog lover or simply someone who would find these clever cards amusing, check out the Kickstarter Campaign page HERE and consider making a pre-purchase.
You can choose from 10 different rewards. Admiral Fox and I are in for cards and t-shirts, so far. And we don't even have a dog. So far.
"You can choose from more than 10 different rewards you’ll receive when you contribute. Rewards come with contributions as low as $15 and include purchasing one or more decks signed by theauthors, limited edition T-shirts, stickers or posters with art from the cards. You can get your name or your pooch’s photo in the guidebook itself or a chance to put your beloved dog in their memorial dog park (website), and have personal readings with the authors using the cards."
