Speckles and Friends Evoke Joy of Friendship
AUSTIN, TX – January 23, 2006 – Verysupercool today announced the company’s new collection of greeting cards for 2006 – Speckles and Friends. This is the third collection of greeting cards produced by Verysupercool and features Speckles, an eight year-old Beagle/Australian Shepherd Mix. The theme of the collection is friendship with each card featuring a thought provoking quote.
“Speckles and Friends really convey the importance of friendship in our lives – be that bond with dogs or humans,” explains Sue Rostvold of Verysupercool. “Listening is essential in any friendship and dogs tend to be natural listeners. This is due mostly to the fact that they can’t talk! But the great thing about dogs is, they don’t have to, they can just look at you and convey their love and friendship.”
Speckles card contains the quote, “Good listeners, like precious gems, are to be treasured.” by Walter Anderson.
Speckles friends make up the remaining cards in the collection. They are: Quincy, a 14 year-old German Shepherd, Wolfhound, and maybe something else, mix. Dexter, and 11 week-old Chihuahua; Bella, a 10 week-old French Bull dog; Aggie, a 3 year-old Chocolate Newfoundland; Lindsey, and 7 year-old Daschund; Jubal, a 5 year-old Golden Retriever; Mi Queeney, a 7 year-old Chihuahua mix; and Heidi, an 8 year-old German Shepherd.
This new line has been produced fast on the heels of the initial inaugural lines of Verysupercool greeting cards. The first, entitled Luna and Her Family featured white Great Pyrenees puppies and their mother and contained inspirational and philosophical quotes within each card. The second collection named Wenge and Pals, helped launch the company in November of 2005 and featured Wenge, Sue and Allan’s elderly black lab. All the cards featured in this second collection contained dog-centric quotes that any animal lover would enjoy.
The new collection will soon be available at all locations that sell Verysupercool cards.
