Doggie Cakes - Runs Richey Suncoast Theatre Program Ad for the Holiday

Doggie Cakes - Dog Bakery and Boutique will reach some new audiences (literally) during the Pasco Christmas 2008 - "Christmas Memories" show at the Richey Suncoast Theatre in New Port Richey. We bought season tickets for the first time this year and look forward to seeing the holiday show this weekend.

To try another marketing angle with the community, we purchased a small ad in the program for this show, which is probably sold out. As a new advertiser, we were told that we get a mention on stage prior to the show also, so that's really nice. The attendees seem like a nice group - hope they have dogs, doggie friends, or grandpups. The first two shows of the season were Sweet Charity and Lost in Yonkers. After the current show, you still have a chance to see My Husbands Wild Desires Almost Drove Me Mad, Crazy for You, and Hello Dolly closing the season in May 2009.

Doggie Cakes - Returns to The New Port Richey Farmer's Market

Doggie Cakes will return as a vendor at the New Port Richey Farmer's Market for two dates in December 2008 - Saturdays - the 6th and 27th. The move from Cavalier Square to Railroad Square on Nebraska Avenue, seems to be attracting new shoppers and dog owners - as you can see the Market from Grande Boulevard now. The timing is also right as our website and physical store are both in good order, so we can divide our efforts. We stopped selling at this weekly event in June, in order to focus on our Main Street store, special events, marketing, and wholesale orders.

If you have not already checked out the Farmer's Market, it runs every Saturday from 9 AM - 1 PM. Nebraska Avenue is East of Grande Boulevard and one block South of Main Street, in New Port Richey. This map is pretty close to the intersection. On days when we are not a vendor, we'll be shopping and visiting with our dogs. Our store is open from 10 am - 6 pm on Saturdays - See you soon.

Doggie Cakes - Blog - Indexed by Category

It's exactly 10 months today since Doggie Cakes wrote its first blog. It was only yesterday that we learned how to index the 70 entries that show the evolution of the business, products, events, and partnerships that we have developed. There are currently 24 categories that you can view our blogs with. My favorite category is Making Moves because it shows every new development from baking at home and selling in the local flea market, to renting a store with commercial kitchen and becoming a wholesaler and retailer. The term "making moves" has to be credited to our friend Maximo Lora, who is supportive of our efforts and uses the phrase for any impressive new marketing or product developments. The first round of categories is below. Check it out.

Our Cats Love Kitty Mouse Gourmet Cat Treats


Doggie Cakes - Dog Bakery and Boutique is proud to present Kitty Mouse - Gourmet Cat Treats. We have experimented with baking our own treats for cats, but so far our cats are not 100% behind them. We recently purchased these healthy cat treats from one of our suppliers and all four of our cats love them.

The treats come in Salmon and Vegetables, and also in Duck and Vegetables. In addition to the meat broccoli the ingredients are cauliflower, blueberries, apples, cranberries, alfalfa sprouts, parsley with vitamins & minerals to enrich the nutrition. Each flavor is packed in a 7 ounce vintage inspired can.

We continue to develop our own line of cat treats, but in the duration - support and make these treats available to you and your cat friends.
