A Rescue Dog

All 3 of our fur-kids are rescue pups. They each, at their own pace, had to adjust. It took weeks. Months. It's a process requiring lots of patience and love. The majority of shelter pups are there because of neglect, abuse, and abandonment. Often times, they are rescued from nightmares. At the shelter, they have to adjust. And, once adopted, they have to adjust to that transition as well. It takes time. Some longer than others.

Biscuit Love For Sweet Baby Ivy

The highlight of the week happened on Wednesday. We delivered biscuit love to the Ledyard Pound and got to meet sweet baby, Ivy. This girl is an absolute love. Ivy gobbled her biscuit love with gusto and got us all mushy gushy. Thank you to Animal Control Officer, Christina, for taking the time to visit and snap a few photos.

We'll Finally Be Able To Have A Winter Fun Photo Contest

Yesterday, while the white stuff fell from the sky, we baked tray after tray after tray of biscuits. There was a little excitement in the air because finally...we have snow. With a possible storm moving in on Saturday, it's safe to say we'll be able to have a winter fun photo contest next week. We've been wanting to launch one, but with no snow so far this season...well, it just wasn't happening.

We're Diving Into Valentine's Day A Bit Early

Valentine's Day is less than a month away. While there's an endless selection of dog-themed Valentine's Day items sitting on the store shelves to purchase, have you ever given thought to making your own? Whether it's a heart-shaped pet pillow or homemade dog treats in the shape of hearts, your fur-kid will be head over paws. It's all about the love.

Scammers Will Stop At Nothing

It doesn't surprise us. In this day and age, scammers will stop at nothing to make a quick buck. They'll seep through the woodwork even when it involves a missing pet. They don't care that the pet parents are heartbroken, worried and stressed. In fact, this is what motivates them.

Who Cut The Cheese Dog Treats

The majority of homemade dog treat recipes we come across have your usual, run-of-the-mill names. Peanut butter dog treats. Pumpkin dog treats. Bacon Cheese dog treats. You get where I'm going with this. The creativity is somewhat lacking. However, once in a while, we stumble across one that catches our attention.

The Lottery From A Pup's Perspective

One of the trending topics for the duration of last week was the Powerball jackpot spiking to 900 million dollars. I can count on one hand how many times Lisa and I have played the lottery. Last week was one of them. Two tickets with numbers we chose and a quick pick. Of course, like millions of other hoomans, we indulged in those "If we won the Powerball jackpot we'd...." conversations.

Our Hearts Are Heavy Today

Last week we launched a 'Biscuits For Bernice' fundraiser. Our goal was to raise enough money to pay for a months worth of medications for this old girl, who was recently diagnosed with Cushing's disease. We also wanted to purchase some winter essentials for Bernice. A couple of thick plush blankets. A new coat. Sweaters.

Our Peanut Butter Of Choice Is Skippy Natural

This warning started circulating via Facebook and other social networking sites last year. The first time it appeared, I lost count how many people tagged me. We received quite a few messages and emails. First and foremost, thank you. We are grateful so many people wanted to give us a head up. To this day, on occasion, we still get an email or two about this. From time to time, people have asked us personally, or the staff where we have biscuit displays, what type of peanut butter we use.

Time Well Spent At the Bethlehem Pound

On December 30th we launched a "Biscuits For Bernice" fundraiser. This sweet girl was dumped in the town of Bethlehem mid November and is currently residing at the Bethlehem pound under the care of Animal Control Officer Judy. Bernice is an older girl and was recently diagnosed with Cushings Disease. She'll require daily medications totaling about $70 a month.
