Darla has been a part of our family for four months now, and it finally feels like the new normal. For those of you who don't know the story of our little miracle pup, Darla, feel free to read it here. It took some adjusting for both us and Darla to figure out the ends and outs of living together, but she has acclimated really well. That said, I know she misses her mama. Even more so, I know her mama misses Darla. Darla's mom is away serving our country, and I know it has to be so hard being away from her baby for so long. I cringe thinking about having to board Jenny for a weekend. I can only imagine leaving her for months at a time. Dogs aren't like people. They don't understand what a deployment means or why we have to leave them for periods like that. I think that makes leaving them that much harder.
Darla and I teamed up with Lovepop to do something special for her mom while she is away. I was contacted by a fellow Navy wife about this new company and was instantly intrigued by such a one of a kind product. Lovepop creates unique, 3-D cards for any occasion. The intricate detail on the 3-D portion of the card leaves such a lasting impression, and I know Darla's mom is going to display hers throughout her deployment as a reminder of her little pup back home. I... ahem, Darla... wrote a letter inside the card to let her know how her pup was doing and what's been going on in our world.
The genius engineers behind Lovepop designed these babies so that they fold completely flat yet reveal an intricate, 3-D design when opened. Since this card is going to someone in the Navy, how fitting is this design? I'm obsessed! My engineer husband was so intrigued by the making of the pop up picture. If you're curious about the science behind them as well, check out this kickstarter.

Darla says go check these bad boys out, and really, who could say no to a dog that sits like a human?
