This is going to give you so many feels. 19-year-old Jake Ostrowski was excited about going to college; however, he was bummed that he couldn’t take his dog with him.
“I love my dog — he sleeps with me every night. I’ve been really sad because I’ve got to leave him to go to college.”
His mom gave him a very creative gift for his new college dorm:
Also, is it just me or does that dog look like it’s giving that cut out some side-eye?
That dog is very suspicious of the picture of itself.
Ostrowski said again:
“It can be kind of scary going off to college. But now I’ve got my dog in my dorm with me.”
It has been retweeted 6,000 times by other students going off to college. Living on your own for the first time can be scary. Many other students retweeted this picture.
That was one of the things I missed the most when I went to college. Leaving my dog behind was very difficult.
You may be wondering how to get a cardboard cutout of your dog or something else. There is a website where you can order some pre-done.
There are other websites where someone will make one for you, such as PartyPop.
One cheaper approach would be to print out one large picture using multiple printer pages, then you can tape them together.
You can get a picture printed at Kinko’s and mount it to the cardboard yourself.
You will need a camera with the highest megapixels you can find, so you don’t end up with a pixelized picture on your cardboard. Pictures like this are much easier to enlarge.
You can get the picture enlarged for around $100 (they charge per square foot). Then, you will need the glue and cardboard, which will be approximately $15-$20.
