Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Rich and I am the grand mastermind (I use that term loosely) behind this webstore.
Having always been an entrepreneur at heart, I started this site because of not only my love for dogs, but also as a way express my enjoyment of writing as well as the love I've had of making people laugh since I was a kid. Yes, I was a class clown.
When I was growing up my family had two dogs, Frisky and Taffy. Frisky was our first and was my sisters, and was loved by all.
Frisky was of dubious lineage and seemed to be called everything but Frisky.
Names like Friskella Louise when it was good, Friskella on an average day, and a lot of other more "colorful" adjectives when she was bad. Ahhh but that dog was loved.
Frisky also taught me a thing or two about the birds and bees.
Like the time a stray dog somehow got into our backyard.......It was a shocking sight for young eyes, but Frisky never complained.
Not long after, Frisky became a Mom ** which started a family debate, which puppy do we keep, would it be Pickles? Fred or Ethel? (I Love Lucy was a popular T.V. show back then) or Taffy?
Well, since this was going to be "my" dog, Taffy won out, and the other pups went on to happy homes. Besides, what young boy with a degree of self respect would want to have a dog named Pickles? Needless to say, Taffy was a fun part of my growing up as she always wanted to play ball, and followed me everywhere. She never had her own litter as we learned from past experiences to keep the back gate locked, but I'm sure she would have made a fine mom.
Nowadays, due to various circumstances I'm unable to have dogs, so I vent my dog loving urges on my sister's two dogs Barney and Pepper. Her dogs are characters to say the least, with Barney acting more like a girl and Pepper (a female) behaving like a boy. Their gender twisted antics have given our family a lot of interesting memories as well as laughs.
**I totally encourage all dog owners to have their pup spayed or neutered as to avoid unwanted litters. Our family didn't have Frisky fixed because back in the 1960's it wasn't promoted as heavily as it thankfully is today, so it didn't cross our minds, nor would it have been in the family budget. Besides, Frisky was a backyard dog...this is proof though that "things happen" so please...spay or neuter!!

A Bit Of A Warning…
When we first started building this site I knew we were going to advertise on Facebook and Instagram and came across the ads from other stores where they would say in their ad…This Purchase Will Feed 10 Shelter Dogs.
Realizing that this was mostly a way to get people to buy their products and to feel good about it we started doing research as to whether they truly were donating $$$ to pay for the meals as they claim.
Needless to say we were left seriously doubting that they were….Remember, just because something is on the internet doesn’t mean it’s true. 😊
We also realized that it would be very difficult to keep up with this sites maintenance as well as keep track of how many dogs we were going to try and feed this month so we decided not to stretch the truth by promoting our products the way others do.
We would encourage all who have seen ads from companies that promote their products this way to contact those stores and ask for names and proof that they really are feeding dogs as they say before making a purchase from them....because after all, who wants to do business with those not telling the truth?
I hope you enjoy our store,
