"Homemade with Love" Dog Treats Giveaway

UPDATE: Deadline to enter is extended to Midnight EST, tonight!

Enlarge to see detail.
Trixie Lou's Cheesers... we (me, Trixie, Tori and Ringo) have finally perfected this dog treat recipe so that they are yummy, crunchy and good-for-your-pooch! Made with organic oat flour and brown rice flour, they are free of the ingredients that typically cause problems for our pups - wheat, corn, soy and yeast. I've added co-jack and parmesan cheese to the dough, and sprinkled some co-jack on top for a crunchy finish that our dogs love. There are no preservatives, so you'll want to use them up within a week or keep them in the refrigerator.

So what are you waiting for? Leave a comment now for your chance to win a bag of these yummies for your pooch(es). The giveaway will close tomorrow night, Monday, at 6:00 p.m. EST and a winner will be selected by none other than Trixie. Maybe. If I can bribe her to pick a name! Winners are limited to U.S. ~sorry! I can't afford the overseas shipping costs.

I have also decided to sell my "homemade with love" dog treats for the next few months. Price is $6.50 + shipping, payable via Paypal (see button to right, in sidebar), or you can mail a check. Email me at suzgarten(at)yahoo(dot)com if you'd like more information.

I hope to add a beefy and chicken flavor biscuit soon, but for the moment just the Cheesers are available.
There are approximately 2 dozen medium size bone-shaped treats in the bag, which weighs between 6 and 7 ozs.

I am trying to keep the cost of shipping reasonable, but the United States postal service makes this task difficult. As long as the total weight of the package is under 13 ozs, it goes first class, approximately $3.26. If you want 2 packages, the box weight tips the scales past 13 ozs, so we'll use Priority mail, the small box rate, which is $4.95. If you want more than two bags of treats, I'll work with you to keep the shipping costs down.

Treats will be baked on weekends and shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays only so that they don't get stuck at the post office over the weekend.

There is nothing better than to end a bad day covered in dog slobber!

  3. Pick me! Pick me! My three dogs (Eva Jean, Charity and Oliver) definitely deserve something special in return for all the love they laughs they give us!

  4. What a great idea! I have only baked doggie treats once. I should try it again sometime! Treats are so expensive, and I go through so many due to my behavioral issue with Sadie.

  6. Sounds great! Are dog passed away a few years ago, but the next door neighbor's dog (who loves to wander in our yard and see what treats the little kids dropped) would be excited to see those.

    BTW, I'll be posting tomorrow on the story about the missing person from Alaska (Sheila McBroom) that you told me about. Thanks again for the info. and enjoy your week.

  9. You are so smart to sell these! I made homemade dog biscuits with my niece one time. She thought that it was the greatest thing. Also made a doggy birthday cake with her. She thinks I'm really cool now. LOL!

    We don't have a dog anymore so don't enter me in the contest but I know these treats will make some pup very happy.

    Please sign us up if I'm not too late (I still don't know what time it is in my house since we did this crazy Daylight Savings Time. Two of my 'reliable' clocks batteries went dead and my other clocks weren't right to begin with. lol!).

    Thanks!

  16. Drat, I missed it. And Corky Porky Pie would love those biscuits. Unfortunately, he's a pudgy little dog already and doesn't need more weight. Still ... I could always buy him a bag for Christmas, huh? :)
