When trying to figure how best to approach letting other people get to know Slugger, we came up with an Open House idea.
It's kind of like a baby shower/welcome home/birthday party/educational opportunity all rolled up into one :) We invited all of the kids in Cole's class and their families, in case they have any questions or want to get the chance to meet this dog they have heard so much about. We also invited friends and neighbors that helped us with our fundraising and who have supported us in this adventure.
Here is a look at our adorable invitations.Isn't the backer just too cute for words? I am biased, I know.
Love the bow on the bone.
My good friend, also a Dravet mom, is SO talented. Check out her shop here! She can do anything. I've gotten custom stationery, Christmas cards, Baby Shower invites, name cards for parties and much more from her. Take the time to go and wander her etsy store...you WILL be impressed!
If you live locally and know anyone that would be interested in meeting Slugger or learning more about service dogs, just e-mail me. We want everyone to get the chance to meet him and to brag about how amazing 4 Paws for Ability is. You can bring your friends, special needs or not!
This truly has been like bringing another baby into our family. Hopefully everyone else is as excited as we are.
