Greeting Card Campaign: 8-10 Spoil Your Dog Day

Click here to download the card.
Spoil Your Dog Day comes to us, appropriately enough, during the Dog Days of Summer. The heat has something to do with it being called the Dog Days, but there is also an astronomical reason.  During this time of year, the Dog Star (Sirius) is supposed to be closer to the sun than at any other time of year. At any rate, August 10th has been designated "Spoil Your Dog Day" - a day for dog lovers to cater to Fido's every whim. So whip up some homemade dog treats (recipe here), spruce up the old hound and go for a stroll in the park or something with your faithful companion (and your dog too).  And make your sweetie a card too to let her know the other old dog appreciates being spoiled too!

Just click on the caption below the picture of the pampered pooch and it will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a side fold card, so when it prints be sure to tell your printer it's in "landscape" format so you get it turned right. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This will save you a lot of time.  Have fun and spoil your dog and your favorite girl at the same time with this fun homemade card.
