When I was in seventh grade, my sister convinced me to sign up for a hotmail account. I wanted something to do with puppies or bunnies, but my sister said that wasn't that original and someone probably already had a puppy email address. I thought about it more, I didn't want to use my real name with the address because I was in seventh grade and have internet-safety-conscious parents, so I started thinking of ways to make the email address unique. Eventually, puppybraille was born.
I actually remember thinking how cool it would be to combine the two things. One could read a book while petting the dog, how cool would that be?
