B Grade Sad Doges and Fulfillment
14 days ago – Sat, Jun 11, 2022 at 09:33:26 PM

We were grading the Sad Doge pins and unfortunately we're missing enough of A Grade pins to fulfill the current pledges :( If you received a tracking number and it doesn't work within 48 hours, it's because we had to refund it since we ran out of pins. We contacted our manufacturer for an immediate reship but they won't arrive for at least a month. Very sorry about this, but we want to make sure the pins you receive are up to standard! Thank you for understand! TT TT

Pins are here!

Thank you guys for all your patience with the pin manufacturing! All the pins are finally here and ready to ship ^^ Unfortunately, we're also heading to some back-to-back conventions this month, so while we will prepare for them, it will be slow going. Here's some photos of the finished product!

The doggy pats videos are currently being edited as well by our wonderful helper who's manually adding every single name to the video T oT  <3 Just wanted to let you guys know it's still in production!

Post-campaign Preorder Store
3 months ago – Sun, Mar 27, 2022 at 07:11:43 AM

If you missed the campaign..

The preorder store is now open here!

The only difference between preordering and backing the Kickstarter is that you won't receive the extra bonuses when you get a Sad Doge Pin for free, but they're available as add-ons! They will all be shipped at the same time when the pins are received.

All surveys should have been sent out! We ran into an issue where we couldn't remove the shipping for add-ons, so if you paid for shipping during the Kickstarter and again when you order add-ons, we WILL be batch running refunds! Sorry for the inconvenience :( 

Thoma Video & Pin Sample
3 months ago – Wed, Mar 23, 2022 at 01:11:48 AM

We put together a short video to show Thoma's progress in the last few weeks. Some people have asked to see how he's doing, and we're very happy you asked! Honestly since he's an old dog, we expected the recovery to be much slower or for him to be more lethargic, but he's a fierce fighter!! >:O

And a quick photo from our pin manufacturer!
