Some local businesses were a huge help when we first had Ray. He had no social skills whatsoever and was generally afraid of people, so noting places with “dog friendly” staff became important.
Once they were advised about Ray’s situation, they generally went out of their way to make him feel welcome, with the result that he has some places that he now insists on visiting whenever he is in the area!
These attachments developed with time such that we felt a Christmas Card from Ray to those special businesses would be a nice thank you gesture for all their support. This year, we have decided to once again create a Christmas Card from Ray and distribute accordingly, and below is the picture for the 2017 card of thanks!
I think that he would make a pretty good Santa himself if pushed!
