Woof and Hi New Buddy’s Pet Parent,
Thanks again for joining our pack! The MyBuddysPlace.com website has just launched in your area. Currently, creating a new Buddy Profile is free. After the 30-day trial period you will be asked to opt in for the continued use of the profile that helps you manage all of your buddy’s important information at your fingertips. The cost is $2.95 per month per buddy. That’s less than the half the cost of a dog toy! We will bark at you when your trial is about to end. Hopefully you and your bud are happy and continue being part of the pack. In the meantime, bark at us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any ideas or thoughts on how we can improve our dog community. We would love to hear from you.
Cheers and Woof,
