OUR STORY :
So, our story starts with the adoption of Mayble. A very
abused and neglected boxer who we soon find out has a wheat and corn allergy.
She did not like any of the treats from the store, so we began our journey.
Like a howling mad scientist in the kitchen mixing and baking away, trying this
oil and that one, testing this flour or that one. Batch after batch, ones that
upset the stomach, ones that she would eat but did not truly like. Unlike her
adopted friend Neko, who loved anything that had to do with food like the
typical hound he was, Mayble was picky and sensitive. We later found out that
she handled food and treats with fat levels in the lower range, closer to 10%.
So back to mad scientist mode we went. Healthy but tasty we searched and mixed and
finally decided fruits and veggies would be the way to go, with the natural
sweeteners in them. Finally the idea is born how fun would it be to be able to
start a doggie bake shop. Cookies without the preservatives, wheat or corn to
give people the options I could not seem to find in the store. A healthy
homemade treat my dog would actually eat and enjoy. Since working years in the
vet field and seeing more and more pets come in and be diagnosed with food
allergies and owning one myself. I knew the frustration of wanting to give a
treat like all the others but wanting them to enjoy and get excited for it as
well. Mayble was the reason I started, then it became more of a way to make a
difference. Healthier treats that almost any dog can eat. After analysis testing
so far we are doing pretty well at staying close to the 10% - 15% area in fat.
Though Mayble is no longer with us in body, due to sever hip and knee problems,
her spirit and memories keep us going. Out of all those years, her favorite was
the Blue Berry 'N' Rye cookies with or without the yogurt icing. For those, she
would sit by the oven and wait to come out.
Special thanks to all of those who have helped us through in
so many ways. Especially to all of those whose pups have been so kind as to test
out the flavors and help decide if the recipe is worth keeping for the shop or
if we need to go back to mad scientist mode and find something else that works.
We couldn't have done it without you.
