About this project
Calling All Dog Lovers! A Wisdom Deck Especially For You!
Divine Dog Wisdom Cards by Barb Horn and Randy Crutcher is a creative, deeply inspired, and stunningly beautiful work of heart, offering a deck of 62 beautiful images of dogs in different settings and poses, each portraying a unique theme such as Passion, Purpose, Balance, Cooperation and more. This deck is like none other in its category -- a purpose-built deck of wisdom cards designed to inspire and delight you while offering substantial guidance for your daily journey through life. After all, who says that personal growth can't be as fun as a dog with a new Frisbee?
Each card theme is accompanied by an inspiring phrase and the included guidebook offers insight, perspective and wisdom about why you might have "fetched" that card.
Why build a wisdom deck using dogs? Because dogs, like God, Spirit, the Universe, or whatever is transcendent for you, offer absolute and unconditional love. In a dog's eyes we are always perfect and worthy of absolute adoration. Dogs know we make mistakes but they live in a state of constant forgiveness, in a present mindset, and without regret. Few of us experience the kind of continuous, 'no strings attached' love that a dog can offer. This is why the card deck is lovingly 'endorsed' by Spirit and the Canine Council of Wisdom!
If you love dogs, you will find more than one image or phrase that hits home for you, and a few that will even surprise you. Nothing quite like this deck is on the market today! Be the first to own this marvelous, simply lovely, and absolutely unique and heartfelt new product. This card deck is, in a word, divine on all levels. Whether you're a dog lover or just love the wisdom offered by inspired card decks, this product is for you and maybe also for someone you love.
We offer a wide range of perks, from your own signed copy of the deck to posters of some of the cards, from t-shirts to experiences with one or both of the authors, and even the opportunity to memorialize and honor a cherished pet who has left all too soon in our online Memorial Garden or in the back of the deck's guidebook.
Here is the beautiful image from the back of every card that will also adorn the stickers and t-shirts, if you choose one of those rewards from our campaign.
Cards will arrive from the printer in late September in plenty of time for the holidays. Pre-order one, signed by the authors, and cherish it for years to come.

Risks and challenges
No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly, especially one as beautiful as Divine Dog Wisdom Deck. We have worked extremely hard to design and build this product for each of you and the product is print-ready and poised for launch. We've had rave reviews, strong endorsements, and remarkable interest from industry insiders but will need funding to pay for the printing and to purchase the advertising and marketing opportunities to bring Divine Dog Wisdom Deck forward to the world.
Once arrived from the printer, the card decks will be available at Amazon.com, EnlightenUp.biz, Satiama.com and at many local bookstores, gift shops and other retail locations. If they don't carry our deck, ask them to do so.
Thank you all for your interest, support and participation.
We have arranged for production with a top manufacturer who will provide us with beautiful, full color cards, a lovely bound booklet and a sturdy box. We’re very excited to start production immediately following this Kickstarter campaign. We also hired the services of a veteran publishing professional who has a successful track record in this specific market. She will help us to roll out our product to bookstore owners, gift store owners, those who purchase for airport shops, national parks, spas, galleries, pet stores and so many other target markets--not something we could do alone and succeed. Our requested funding through the pre-sales of our deck here at Kickstarter if focused on printing and strategic communication in these markets along with the general retail market.
Our primary risk is only in failing to reach our pre-sales goal, which would result in a smaller print run and a less well-funded marketing launch. Everything else is in place-this is the last piece. As we enter the market, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve future editions of our Deck, although we already have a prototype that has created the current excitement about this book.
We will be working with printers, publishing consultants, marketers and public relations experts who have years of experience delivering excellent products like this one. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise with an overall goal of making the best possible Divine Dog Wisdom Deck for you!
Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal.
Help us to bring these wonderful Divine Dog Wisdom Cards forward into the hands of those who will appreciate their insight and also those who simply adore looking at beautiful images of dogs.
