Going Viral

Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought anything about me or what I am trying to do with Tattle Tail would "go viral"! 



 This photo will have traveled literally around the world.  I took it as a valentines day "present" for these pups future owners!  I thought it was a cute idea and it took off!

For one site alone on Facebook it has been over 91,500 times and liked 111,500 time s (at the time of this writing!  Klem's (www.klemsonline.com) facebook page (www.facebook.com/KlemsOnline) has about probably exploded!  After they posted it, many of the diabetic alert dog online commuity started letting them know how, when, and why that picture came to be! They felt it was important not not only raise awareness about diabetic alert dogs but also about T1 diabetes!

I wrote this note to Klem's  "I am the owner of these 2 week and 5 day old puppies! I raise scent imprinted pups. These pups lil noses already clearly know low diabetic scent even at this tender age! I took this picture as a present for the owners to be! I just wanted to share the lil chocolates as a valentine gift! A coworker at my day job and I made the box that they are in. Thanks for ALL of the likes and comments...diabetic alert dogs are my passion! IF any of you have been around T1 diabetics you know that our  lives revolve around NUMBERS. These dogs are not a cure but they are another tool in the battle against this disease! They will grow up to use their noses to help detect bad numbers but more than that they will be friends and confidants to those that live with this disease. They lay beside us when we feel like crap, they bring us a piece of hope and ray of light in what sometimes seems like a dark place! Thank you for thinking this picture is cute but know these lil ones will grow up to fill a HUGE NEED! I dont raise dogs for a living.....I do this as a side passion. I want others to experience what I have experienced with my own diabetic alert dog. I just want some hope in this world"

As I was trying to read through over 8,500 comments associated with that picture I found the were all sorts of comments from all over the world!  Finland, Greece, Poland, France, Germany, and Turkey are just a few!  I about blew up google translator trying to figure out what they were saying!  Mostly...what cute puppies! 

One of the funniest stories so far came from a childhood friend who lives in the Midwest.  She went into her vets office and showed them the picture...they replied "oh yeah...we saw that on FB!"  She then told them about what these pups do and come to find out the vet tech was a diabetic!  What a small world!

I do want to say thanks to Klem's for letting the world know "who" took this photo and telling folks about what these pups are going to be doing! (www.klemsonline.com).  So if you all need any pet supplies go check them out!  They are also a small family business!
