Treats on Board
Hello to all of the commuters on the Massachusetts Pike! Not only is Frontier (holding the bag) a proud CCI* graduate, but he has hit the road in a photographic way, to promote these special dog treats. Thanks Clear Channel for helping drivers to focus on something other than the bugs on their windshields as they dream of spring (real spring; not stop-and-start fake spring where one day we are firing up the the slip n slide and the next day the fireplace). In the meantime, think about opening day and also about the dogs in your life.
The Red Sox and Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts wanted to do something to celebrate the 100th birthdays of Fenway Park and the Girl Scouts. When they come up with something, this would become my second assignment as the Official Service Dog of the Red Sox (blog was first, and they keep getting bigger). What about: a ‘limited edition Girl Scout Cookie product expansion to include dogs’? That was it- those scouts are geniuses!(LEGSCPETID was too long, so we decided to call them ‘Dog Treats’ and put the information in the bag). It all sounded like a great idea (like seats on top of the Green Monster), but we had to figure out how to do it. First, we needed the cookies aka the treats….something like the dog equivalent of Thin Mint. With the bar set high, CCI went to their friends at Eukanuba (best dog food and treat makers) who said, yes, they wanted to help. By the way, that sounds easy, but they (at Eukanuba) are a really big company who are owned by even bigger company, Procter & Gamble. Obviously, it turned out well because the big company also has a matching big heart. Second, we needed a keepsake, re-useable eco made in USA to put them in- found it- think you will like it. Lastly, we needed sellers and places to sell- had those: Girl Scouts, Canine Companions, and Fenway Park. You might be able to say ‘no’ to a dog, or to a Girl Scout/Brownie/Daisy….but something is just wrong with you if one of them can’t win you over. Keep an eye on the website for the rest of the details- I am afraid I will lose you (maybe already did) if I give any more details. Go to: fenwaydogtreats.com… if you forget the website, just jump on the Pike and there it is- written on the billboard. BTW-please get them early in April (a month which starts tomorrow) because we might run out and you might have to wait another 100 years or as long as the Red Sox or Cubs (still waiting) wait for World Series victories.
thanks for following,
*don’t get lost- I am going to write “CCI” instead of “Canine Companions for Independence”
