I was recently home for my high school 100th Anniversary. Good old Kelvin High School in Winnipeg. Great to see old friends, walk down the halls filled with memories, tell old stories that never seem to get old and be reminded just how much time has gone by since our teenaged years.
I ran into a fellow classmate, Petra Reimann, in the school cafeteria, where we use to order the 4 Food Groups of Kelvin High back then; pizza pops, chocolate malts, french fries and gravy. No yogurt or fruit cups that I can remember.
Petra now resides in Aruba - I know!....there are people that actually live there and are not just there having a vacation of a lifetime. We got chatting and it turns out she is just as passionate about dogs as I am. If you're a dog lover, you know we are all one happy family, aren't we?
She has a fantastic online business that fills what I feel is a very important niche. She designs and sells greeting cards exclusively to veterinarians and vet clinics in Canada and USA. Pet-Ra Greeting Cards are creative, fun, consoling and thoughtful. Vets can welcome new customers, thank them for referrals and what I like the most, send their sympathies when a customer loses a beloved family member. There is a wide variety of designs suitable for lots of different tastes.
I love how simple and classy they are. What a wonderful way to connect with customers and to let them know you care. You can create your own message, which makes them even more personable. And orders over $300 receive free shipping. Personally I'm all about free shipping. Not like I have anything against Canada Post. Just try not to give my hard earned dollars to them whenever I can. Be sure to take the time to check out her website. There's a FAQ section too.
And a final note about my high school gathering. I did run into my "first love", Bruce Bennett. Sigh. I was a love-sick Grade 6 student, convinced I was destined to marry him and have his baby. And of course I just had to confess this deeply buried secret to Bruce at the Reunion. At least it's off my chest now and I can move on with my life.
