Yopp Updates & New Merch!

A cartoon of a light brown dog with floppy ears, a wagging tail, and a big smile. The dog is wearing a red and yellow guiding harness on its back. Above in blocky dark green letters it says "Service Doggos Are The Best Doggos" in all caps.

Today I’m happy to release to you a brand new original merch design with several color variations!

Regardless of whether you rely on one of these pups to keep you safe and healthy, every day of your life, or if you’ve only ever watched them from afar, wishing desperately that you could pet them but knowing they are busy working so you shouldn’t; everyone knows that service doggos are the best doggos.

Having this phrase on a T-shirt was my first ideas for merch for Yopp and I’m so glad I finally got to bring it to fruition. You can now buy all of these designs on T-shirts, stickers, pillow covers, mugs, laptop covers, tote bags and more!

I released three different color schemes, including one with a different colored dog. If I get a lot of response to these, I may draw other breeds to allow for more customization.

New Upcoming Website

My last announcement for the day is that Yopp is about to move to a totally new website! It has been my hope to switch to a different platform for several years, especially because our current one is not screen-reader compatible and that’s a big problem for a disability focused blog.

Well, it’s finally happening, which means things will look a little different around here shortly. I don’t have an exact release date but look for our new look, screen reader compatibility and faster load times around December 1st!
