Carob Dippings


 So what is new? 
Well we have added our first new line of treats.
We added to our great flavors by adding a wonderful and yummy Carob topping to our treats.
Carob is kinda like, chocolate for dogs.  (we purchase ours   from Barrys From here in Ohio.) It is a unsweetend veriaty so to humans it taste like a bitter sweet chocolate. We dip the tops and sides of the treat, don't want to much of a good thing. right!  We intorduced Valentine's Day Treats as our first offerings and soon all the bones will be avaiable.  Some of our Treats below.

R. Bones with Heart,    l. Circle N Hearts        Bottom - Facebook Fan Exclusive item.
Its been fun learning about Carob. Luckly I have used human chocolate before so this knowledge help out.
Measure, Melt, Mix, Dip, Drip and Dry.  
This was all done in a double boiler.  (My Ikea pot and Pampered Chef double boiler insert.) 
This was a fun process, very messy at times. clean up was well, thank whoever envented the dishwasher.
Made clean up oh so easy, now if i get sombody to put them away all will be right in my world.

One last note of importance.
Here is our NEW display at the Greenhills OH Post Office.
Maisie, Rosie, Coco, Robert & I wish you a very happy Valentine's Day

I should have a new post very soon.  Keep an eye out for it.

The weather out side is...

At this moment it is 16 degrees outside.  It's cold, very cold.  
California boy is not used to this.  But i do admit i love it.  
The water for the chickens get frozen in about 2 hours, so  we need to check it often. 
They are not very happy about this cold.  We have a heating lamp for them so they are toasty and warm. 
We are cold but our snow from yesterday is almost gone.  Its funny how its below freezing and still when the sun is out the snow will melt then refreeze after the sun goes behind the house (about 1pm).

Some to the melted-refrozen snow on the outdoor lights.
I have dedcided to update the reason for my blog. since i do not seem to write very much.  so this is all about our dogs and are life as MaiRo & Co - Dog Treat Bakery.
Hope this allowes me more topics to write to you and let you know what we are upto.
Happy Tail to you

Have to share this with you.
I had a customer come in to the Village Post Office where I sell our treats and work (part time).  She asked questions about the dog treats we sell. MaiRo & Co Dog Treats, I told he about the wholesome and natural stuff we put into our treats, whole wheat flour, roasted carob powder, home made Peanut Butter, farm fresh eggs, locally sourced products.  Since her pup did not eat just everything, I offered some samples to take home.
She took the treats placed them in her pocket and left our shop to run more errands.
A few weeks later she stopped by to do some mailing and told me how the treat were such a great success.
(Remember she placed the treats in the pocket of her jeans.)  She got home from doing those errands and hand forgotten about the treats,so into the laundry basket those jeans went. Well we all know how good a dogs nose is. Her dogs sniffed out the carob mint treats from the other laundry smells. Got the jeans out, got into the pocket and ate the treats.  Also eating a whole in the pocket of her jeans.
 This is a true story. 
Just goes to show you good wholesome treats can never be hidden from ANY dog.


Stop by and see whats NEW for Valentine's Day

3 days in to 2013

Well its day 3 of the new year. Its 5 degrees outside, to cold for the chickens to give us any eggs.
Maisie in the Snow
                     Maisie loves the cold and she will just sit in the snow for hours.  Coco will stay with here for some time but in the end will bark to be let in.  Rosie on the other hand will just stick her head out, sniff and most times will retreat to the comfort of my chair. I think she is waiting for Spring.

Maisie, Rosie & Coco Play
Now i have to get to work.  Valentine's day is coming and treats must be made.
Visit us at MaiRoAndCo.com to see our treats for this day of love.

Bow Wow.
