The Somewhat Magical Story of
The 2 Besties, their biscuits & the project
Alas, let it be known that we 2 besties have been baking together since 1988. The story of us besties begins in a fairly normal manner. But it should not be overlooked because of its normalcy. It was an odd pairing. Like putting a Nike Flex Trainer on one foot and a Converse Classic Chuck High Top on the other. However, we 2 did not see our differences as odd because we found that we complement one another (like ying and yang). Oh yes, God knew what he was doing when he brought us, these 2 polar opposites, together. He was creating what would eventually morph into a super-friendship of epic proportions.
Why would we EVER be friends? We both loved our dogs (maybe we dressed them in clothes-whatever). One cool October day we baked our first batch of infamous Halloween cookies together (not the everyday chocolate chip kind). The rest is history! We have been baking those same cookies for just about every holiday ever since (that’s an estimated 24,192 cookies). The short version is: puppy love, cookie dough eating (hasn’t killed us yet) and laughter….an abundance of LOVE and LAUGHTER.
We sold our first biscuit on September 16, 2016. We had already vowed to donate 20% of every biscuit sale to the Northeast Missouri Humane Society.
Our local humane society was one of the main reasons we decided to start the biscuit business. But it didn't seem like enough. The employees and volunteers at the humane society work so hard. In December of 2016 we decided to test the waters on OPERATION: FEED THE FURBALLS. Enlisting local businesses to help us feed the dogs at the shelter after the holiday donating season is over. Our hope is to do this every year from January to April.
So this is the super short version of our friendship and how we became purveyors of peculiarly popular PUPular dog biscuits and, hopefully, fed some furballs.
Thanks for taking the time to read about us.
Love & Licks,
The brunette & The blonde

An extra special amount of love and licks goes to Sunrise Transport!
Because of one man's kind heart, we are FEEDING THE FELINES, too. You heard us! Sunrise Transport is donating 10% per pink box sold. That 10% will be put towards food for the CATS. We know...GASP, right?
I mean, we sell DOG biscuits. We love all the animals and so does the owner of Sunrise Transport. So he decided we are feeding the cats!!
