I wrote to Kim asking him if he thought fliers (flyers?) were a good idea - I wanted to check because it struck me that he might not want such a thing in order to keep the dogs from becoming a popular sensation. Silly me.
Just as a reminder, I've offered to do the layout if no one objects. I can save it as a PDF for downloading and printing at home.
Here is his reply:
Karen ~ Funny you should mention that … every few years we discuss this on the e-mail group at the time.
Before the internet when I went to group outings like Pow-wows I would always bring fliers just so I would not have to repeat myself over & over. I even made a recording at one point & just waited for a crowd to form & turned it on …. Over & over. Now that we have the internet I just tell them a short version & say “to learn more go to indiandogs.com … But I find that most people forget to do that or forget the web site. I have the old flyers, but they are a little out dated now, so it would be nice to make up new ones & maybe send to people with there registration papers? This might really help to promote our breed in a personal way as people are actually meeting an AIDog in person this way & getting an education at the same time & something ion there hand that they won’t forget.
I wonder if there would be a way to put something that any one can copy off the forum & fold up to keep with them, maybe on the public area? I’m not good with computer stuff, & don’t know how to print both sides…. Or maybe just one side, but I would think we could figure out a way to print both sides & mark the lines to fold it into 1/3’s & be able to see both sides? Maybe Allison (or other computer experts) knows more about this & could give some suggestions? You are welcome to cc this to the forum to discuss this if you like?
Thanks, good idea … I sure could have used flyers this week-end at the Dogs for the Deaf Dog walk fundraiser on Saturday & the 4-H club animal fun day where I gave a little seminar on the dogs & genetics. Believe me I know all about all the questions & comments that every one has from – “what’s that a coyote, wolf, fox etc “ … all depending on the color of your dog <g> It sure would make life easier ~
