Umm, how cute is Kaiko???

Good afternoon, Loyal fans!  We were visited by the most adorable CockAPoo today.  Her name is Kaiko and she is 6 months old.  She fit perfectly into the RuffWear Track Jacket Safety Vest and since it is highly adjustable, it will fit her forever!  

Thanks for being Dog of the Day!

On a more positive note…

Dear Loyal Readers, 

Last year, when I began this blog, I wrote several reviews of large commercial brand dog foods.  These posts went fairly unnoticed for the past year.  This blog is written for my customer base, but I can’t make it private or you wouldn’t get to read it!  So that means that anyone can read it.  In the past two weeks, I have been somewhat “attacked” by employees of these larger companies.  I have been accused of being an uneducated, money-grubbing blabbermouth.  I’m a talker, sure…but I’m not stupid and I’m not a money grubber (I certainly wouldn’t be in the pet food business if I wanted to make the big bucks!).  

Ever since losing our dog Bauer to Hemangiosarcoma on April 24th, I’ve gone through a bit of an awakening as it pertains to dogs, cats and life in general.  I actually stopped posting those reviews after his heart-breaking death.  This was not intentional, but I just simply didn’t care as much anymore.  His legacy is bigger than dog food ingredients.  His legacy is “LOVE YOUR DOG”.   Wink’s legacy is “LOVE YOUR CAT”. That is our mission here at the Loyal Biscuit.  That is why we don’t take a stance for or against breeders, rescues, pet shops, etc.  We do not care where you get or find your beloved pet.  Frankly, we ultimately don’t care what you feed them, what vet you use or what kind of collar they wear.  We just want you to love them as much as your heart can take.  With that kind of love, comes a thirst for knowledge–What is the right vaccine protocol for my cat?  What is the best food for my dog?  Should I be giving her this rawhide? Etc, etc, etc…

We believe that by loving your pet enough, you WILL find the answers to those questions.  You will find a veterinarian that aligns with your belief system.  You will find a food that works for your pet.  You will learn hard lessons from this pet that you will apply to  your next pet.  That is the blessing and the curse of pet’s all-too-short life span. 

With that being said, we are now in a new position to take a 100% positive approach to our business.  If you want to talk about the nitty gritty details of pet foods, we are always more than happy to do that.  Everyone who knows us knows that we treat every pet as an individual.  We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to pet care.  Here’s an example:

Orli, Dog age 4:  Eats Raw (Primal), no vaccines

Eider, Dog age 5 months: eats dehydrated (Sojo’s/HK), minimal vaccines

Salem, Cat age 5: eats anything you put in the bowl, but raw food makes him very sick, prefers mice and chipmunks, will only use clay litter, no vaccines anymore

Gordon, Cat age 7 months:  loves raw food and canned food, minimal vaccines

Solah, Cat age 5-7 years: only eats gravy from wet food, grain free kibbles, no vaccines, prefers natural litter

Those are all of my pets and I treat each one as the individual they are.  I would never recommend raw to a customer who has small children or an ailing parent in the home.  I would never recommend dry food of any sort to a customer who’s dog has chronic intestinal issues.  We work through each situation and will make suggestions according to your situation.

So, come see us and we can discuss what is right for your dog or cat…

We have a bigger location, with parking around back.  Tons more fabulous dog food and another new freezer full of raw food.  Pretty beds, pretty collars, warm coats!  Cozy kennels, silly toys, sympathy cards and much more!

So, if you haven’t already, come check out the Loyal Biscuit Co on Rockland’s Main Street.  We would be honored to love your pet too!

Today at the Biscuit

Tula Tallulah (as I call her) stopped by today to pick up a RuffWear Track Jacket* to wear outside during Hunting Season…a very good idea!  

You can become a fan of Tallulah by clicking here!

*Large Track Jackets will become available again after November 11th, for those of you waiting!

Here is a photo of Leo, one of our first Dog of The Blog recipients, leaving the Biscuit.  Sadly, his favorite part is leaving.  I try desperately to please this little guy and he does not  love me.  I think he plays hard to get…

The next visitor was PulGa, who is a mixed breed from Chile in South America!  He was rescued by his dad earlier this year and is loving life in Maine.  The picture is blurry because this guy is always on the move!

Have a great day!
