Last month we published a post about a Sweet Baby Named Amos. This pup captured our attention and tugged at the heartstrings. During his stay at the Preston Pound, we delivered biscuits several times and visited with Amos. Long story short, he had been neglected and abandoned for quite some time. He was found emaciated, dehydrated, and about 90% of his fur was gone. His skin was leathery, cracked and, in some spots, bleeding.

In the past couple of months we've had a lot of people ask what they can do to help aside from making a donation for delicious biscuits. This question comes up a lot. In fact, it was our inspiration behind adding the recent "How You Can Help" tabbed page.

Are you familiar with the "You Had One Job" memes? If not, it's a collective assortment of photos depicting the results of dorked out moments from mislabeled products, misspellings, etc. Our case of Skippy Natural Peanut Butter in the bottom half of a Jif case would be a perfect candidate for one of these memes.

Saturday night, shortly before 10 pm, we had our moment of, "I think we're all set. Let's do this." The biscuits were all bagged up, dozens of biscuits had been put aside for the packages we would be shipping to the shelter babies on Monday, our totes of supplies were packed, the baskets were filled, and everything on our "to do" list had been crossed off.

Despite the exhausting hustle and bustle, this week has been nothing short of phenomenal for so many reasons. During several points throughout the week, we stopped for a moment, took in a deep breath, exhaled and thought, "This is all coming together."

People ask us questions about Bodacious Biscuit Love all the time. We love it. It generates conversation and interest. That is a beautiful thing in our book as it continues to build our growing community. Questions range all over the charts from "can people eat your biscuits" to "do you plan on coming out with a meat flavored biscuit." One question we're frequently asked is, "Why the simple packaging and handwritten labels?"

Almost two years ago we adopted our lil' Coco bug. A few months prior he was rescued from a basement where he had been locked in a kennel and abandoned. We met him the day after his rescue. He wanted nothing to do with us "hoomans." He would run away if someone tried to pet him. Picking him up was not an option.

This week was cah-ray-zeeeee! On top of Mother's Day Basket preparation, we had an exuberant amount of Bodacious Biscuit Love to distribute via shipping and delivery. There were emails coming in left and right and by Friday of last week, it was determined that it would be another "bake 'round the clock" fest...no breaks. We're not complaining. The more biscuits we bake...the more Biscuit Love to be spread.

We've lost count how many times someone has opened a bag of Bodacious Biscuits, took a whiff and said, "These smell good enough to eat." Our response is, "You can. Take a bite." Some people immediately take a nibble. Others look at us as if we have three heads...as if they're thinking, "Are you crazy? I'm not eating a dog biscuit!"

Call it evolution. Transformation. Change. Growth. It all happened last month. Although Bodacious Biscuit Love has been a continuous learning experience, last month...it all came to a head. After much deliberation, a monumental decision was made. I use the term "monumental" because if you know me personally, this decision may come as a shock.

We believe that Mother's Day isn't just for the moms of 2 legged "hooman" kids. Some may dispute this. In fact, there have been numerous heated debates on Facebook between "fur kid moms" and "hooman kid moms." All differences aside, there is no doubt in our minds and hearts that ALL moms deserve to be recognized on Mother's Day.

Today we ventured out on our second biscuit run. Please don't mistake that for anything related to physically running...as in a 5K or other type of marathon. Trust me, if either one of us attempted that, it wouldn't end well. More than likely we'd be face down on the ground within the first ten minutes after starting time.
