These biscuits must be good. I’m sure I don’t need to remind you that Patience the Cat is not a dog, but these pictures demonstrate my attempt to take pictures of the biscuits that Shawna Howe, owner and baker at The Barking Biscuit Bakery, gave me.
The stolen biscuits in the pictures are gluten free, trail mix flavor dog biscuits.
Shawna, a lifelong animal lover who has worked as a veterinary technician and as a technician in a compounding pharmacy, wanted to continue working with animals. She also wanted her own business. She thought a doggie day care would be fun, but turned to baking when she realized it would make dogs just as happy, but without the high startup costs.
“So,” I asked, “How do you test these to find out if they’re good enough to market?”
“The dogs taste them and let me know if they’re good,” she responded. ”Well … all but one. He’ll eat anything.”
She added that her mccaw sometimes tastes them and weighs in with an opinion. A pet snake also lives in the house, but he is not part of the tasting committee.
Much to the dismay of dogs around here, I’d like to give this sample bag of biscuits away. They are grain free and perfect for the sensitive dog!
Shawna also gave me her last bag of peanut butter biscuits made with wheat. All of her products will be grain free from now on.
If you have a wheat-eating dog, this raffle is his last chance for the perfect biscuit!
Enter the raffle by a comment below telling me which prize you are interested in. I’ll send an email to the winner next Wednesday and we’ll figure out the best way to get them to you.
Do it now! Your dog is counting on you!
And let him know that in the meantime I promise to carefully keep them away from marauding cats.
