One Pamphlet, Two Years, and an Oscar Speech
Way back in 2012, someone asked me to make a tri-fold pamphlet about DINOS. That’s right. Two years ago. Well, I did it!
I may never win a trophy for speed, but I’d like to think that one day I’ll win the Oscar for “Best Dog Walker in the Better Late Than Never” Category.
Just getting nominated would be an honor, but I’d really like to win so that I can give a thank you speech and say stuff like “Hashtag Suck it” to Julia Roberts and then get drunk at the Vanity Fair party with new best friend Daniel Day-Lewis.
Oh, right, so here’s the trifold. It’s pretty simple:
This is all the yada yada on the inside. The point is to tell folks about DINOS…
…and give them general tips for safe, polite dog walking so that all of us (DINOS or not) can enjoy being out in public with our dogs:
You can download and print the trifold here.
If you have a table at an upcoming event or work at a pet store, a vet’s office, a shelter, or just like to stand on the corner and hand stuff out, feel free to print (double sided-style) and distribute! If this one doesn’t float your boat, there are a bunch more handouts on the DINOS website here.
Finally, I’d like to thank the Academy for recognizing my epic slowness in the field of printed educational materials. A special thanks to Rebecca Greenwood for asking me to do this and then sending me her own version to get my slowpoke self into gear. I’d also like to thank my laptop for not overheating and my printer for not running out of ink, just this one time. Most of all, I’d like to thank my mother. When I was a kid she’d always tell me that if I could dream it, I could make it into a handout. She taught me to never, ever give up, even when people used my “literature” to line their bird cages. I wouldn’t be here, annoying the public, if you didn’t believe in me mom. Alright, alright, alright. Hashtag suck it Julia!
