Doggie Cakes - Video - Fox 13 - Good Day Tampa Bay

Doggie Cakes - Dog Bakery and Boutique in New Port Richey, Florida was a part of Good Day Tampa Bay on Fox 13 this morning. We baked lots of treats to show and give to the doggies that came to be a part of the segment. I think it turned out great.

Thank you - West Pasco Chamber of Commerce for recommending us as a guest. Lot's of friends were on hand and around. Thanks Marilyn Wolf, BS, CPDT - Pet Trainer and Behavior Consultant for bringing her lab rescue dog Molly and for taking care of Cosmo during the segment. Melinda Jonatzke, who is a craft vendor at the New Port Richey monthly Shop 'N Stroll and local resident, brought her dog Bubba.

Gail Armstrong, Interim Exectutive Director, SPCA Suncoast also had a segment to speak about the adoptable dogs and cats at her shelter. She brought Bella, a foster chihuahua who has a broken but healing leg, and will soon be in shape to be adopted.
