Susquehanna Service Dogs

Hello friends!  This post is about an organization that has a very special place in my heart.  Those of you who know me well, know that I have been a volunteer for SSD since 1994.  I’ve had the pleasure of raising  two puppies that have gone on to become service dogs and I have babysat numerous puppies along the way.  This is also how we came to own our most recent labrador retriever as a pet.  She was released from the SSD program and we adopted her.  This is my furry baby, Kida.

I have decided that I wanted to use my love of making cards to donate money to help fund the next group of service dogs.  From now through November 15th, I am taking orders for packs of my handmade cards.  Each pack contains six cards/envelopes and comes nicely decorated and ready for gift giving.  These are perfect for hostess gifts, teacher gifts, music teachers, etc. this holiday season.  You have your choice of a set of All Occasion cards or The Animal Lovers Christmas Cards.  The cost of one pack of cards is $20, with a portion of the proceeds going to SSD.

If you’d like to get a start on your  holiday shopping and help out the service dogs, you can order by sending an email to  If you’re local to me, the cards can be picked up at my house or the SSD Kennel.  Not local?  I’m happy to ship them  directly to you for an additional $5. You can also check out the service dogs at to see what they’re all about!

Your purchase will be truly appreciated by me and the future service dogs! Thank you so much!
