“Today your to-do list is probably more than a few bullet points, it might have more activities than viable hours, and it may feel overwhelming and beyond your actual capacity to handle gracefully. Yet, for every plan we make, God has a better one—utilizing every talent and making allowances for every weakness. ⠀⠀
Psalm 139 says we were created intentionally, with purpose, and He has already planned ahead to bring fulfillment of that purpose through our daily lives. Have you checked in with Him about your to-do list?
When we surrender our plans to Him, He takes what He knows about us and creates a purposed approach. Every day is a gift, and it’s our responsibility to do something with the present moment that will honor God and the talents He’s given us.”

During a late night walk with Thor, I spotted this little guy was running down the street all alone. I yelled “Hey buddy!” And he stopped and stared at me. I called “come here buddy” and he ran over to me. Such a sweet dog. I took him home to take a closer look at him. Upon closer inspection I found that 1- He was wearing tags. 2- His name is actually Buddy. 🤷♂️ Thankfully his owners info was on the tags and up to date so they were quickly reunited. 🐾🐾
The new Send Me and Send Us K9 glasses are live on the online site and they won’t last long from the number of orders we’re already getting. You might want to head over to the website to grab yours before they’re gone.
I know nothing is ever perfect, but it doesn’t mean you can’t work towards perfection.
Tomorrow morning the new Send Me and Send Us K9 etched glasses will be available for preorder. 2 months to get it right, we’re finally ready to bring another quality Send Me item into the online store.
We are feeling so grateful for the Lords leadership on our lives ✨. We are overwhelmed with thankfulness to be exactly where we are because we know it’s a right where the Lord wants us to be. Saying yes isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it 🙌🏼. This whole process (moving to Kona, joining YWAM, heading overseas in 2020, etc) has been a beautiful invitation from the Lord. An invitation to take us deeper in learning how to walk by faith when we have no idea what it’s going to look like and to grow in surrender and dependence in all areas of our lives. We are so glad we said “yes” and so thankful for all of the people encouraging us and supporting us in this process!! We love you all 🤗!
These two. 💙🐾. For everyone that’s asked, I’m working on getting more of the K9 tees in. In the meantime, we’ve restocked both Send Me patches. We’re still putting together a few new items, so I’m pretty pumped to get them out there for everyone to see. I’m also working on getting more out to you all in my IG stories, only because @bryansprogress told me to. 😒 Be safe out there!

I was blessed to start a program that connected people through sharing their stories and experiences in life, hoping it would spread to help people be better human beings to each other. I know positivity and hope aren’t popular right now on social media and if I used my social media to constantly show people failing at life, I’d have hundreds of thousands of followers by now. But that’s not why I’m here and I know that’s not what the Lord’s purpose for me is every time I ask Him to send me.
This short video is a piece of a longer video I filmed and started working on today. The little girl in it I had only known for about 5 minutes. She was either nudging or holding my arm the whole lunch period. I think I ended up there to be reminded of why the work is so important and why we all have a vital role in bringing people together.
Before she left for recess she stopped to ask me one question, “Will you come back?” Lord, I’ll go. Send Me.

For those of you that don’t know me (I’ve met a majority of you in person) I’m Bri! 🙋🏻♀️
Did you know... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been a part of the K9 industry for about 5 years now and I’m not going anywhere (you’ll know why soon, if you don’t already know - it’s still a tiny secret) 😍 ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the first I’ve ever said about this... but, I also own my own consulting company called “It’s a Bri’s” aside from making stickers. I’ll let you guess what kind of consulting... 😎 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess you could say that I’m a person that puts too many eggs in one basket, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My passion and drive for this industry is endless. Every single ounce of me, including many sleepless nights go straight to K9. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Women like you don’t happen often, never forget about how rare you are.”

HERE I GROW. 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Beyond speechless at the amazing gift we received from @squarejuan today. This picture doesn’t do it justice, it is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to hang it! It will proudly hold all of Apart’s collars. 😍Thank you for thinking of us and spreading your positive message. We’ve got your 6 always! #sendus#sendme#fideliscanis#gsd#k9#workingdog#k9leadstheway
This message in the photo means something to me. It means so much to me that as a small business owner I made an investment and trademarked it long ago. I wanted this message to come from a place of authenticity and experience. Unfortunately there are other people that lack both that are emulating this message and many others for their own personal and financial gain.
Without being 100% specific, but providing some specifics, there is someone who has gained access to the K9 community via selling K9 stickers and patches. They’ve ripped off my logo as well as @barktheblue’s logo, claiming that they are “giving back”, yet they have not provided a penny to any K9 benefit organizations. I’ve seen a lot of people I follow here on Instagram with the stickers on their vehicles promoting the person selling the stickers, thinking the seller is actually helping the K9 community. Unfortunately, they are not and it’s unfortunate.
Over the last 2 years, I’ve had people specifically ask me publicly what are some of my give back efforts through Send Me and I’ve never had an issue giving a clear and transparent answer. However, the person selling these K9 stickers and patches asks people to direct message them privately for give back efforts. That too is unfortunate.
This post is two fold. First, my hope is that the person, who knows exactly who they are because I have messaged them personally as well, does the right thing and takes down their Etsy store and stops selling the stickers and patches that incorporate my and @barktheblue’s design ideas as they have already taken down one of their stickers that was almost identical to my Send Me logo from their Etsy store and Instagram page.
Second, it’s a reminder to everyone that just because someone’s profile says they “support/back the blue”, doesn’t mean they’re being integral about it.
This community of law enforcement and law enforcement supporters have enough to deal with daily. The last thing it needs is someone who is only here for the money and attention trying to profit off of it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some cease and desist letters to send out and some trademark infringement claims to file.
