I Have a Dream...

That one day soon, all dogs everywhere will have yummy jerky treats fresh out of the cooker just like I do.

I'm sure that I've mentioned that my dad has been making me fresh jerky every day - well, the time has come for all of my dog buddies to have some too. The dehydrator is running non-stop, we bought an industrial vacuum-sealing machine, and I even see some sausage-making equipment still in boxes. This can only mean one thing. Well, to me at least.

I mentioned to dad that while of course I love his jerky, that we might want to get some independent thinkers to be our taste-testing-team. And who better than dogs who blog, eh? So I had mom spend her entire Sunday visiting a zillion of my buddy's blogs (ok, maybe it was less than a zillion but from the looks of her bony fingers it was awfully close) and dropping the hint that a free sample of yummy jerky could be yours if you ask.

We're making two kinds, and each doggie will get a little packet of each: Bogart's Hearty Chew (which is beef heart), and Bogart's Chicken Chips (which is chicken breast). No junk here, this is human-quality meat freshly sliced and jerk-i-fied.

The first batch, ready to go!

I can't get enough of this stuff - even my kitties love it! We just break it up into tiny pieces for the felines and they go to town.

I hope someday soon to convince the humans that this should be more than just a tasty hobby and maybe become our "big idea" or they could fulfill their "special purpose" (mom is chuckling as she writes that). But for now, we just want to give some special treat-lovin' back to the lovely group of doggies that we've become friends with over the last few years and of course we hope you LOVE them!

We will ship them anywhere, but as one of our good doggie friends Noah told us, some countries have issues accepting packages with meat in them. These are sealed and packed in vacuum baggies, but we can't guarantee they'll get past those meat-sniffing Beagles (no offense to adorable Beagles everywhere).

I check all packages before they go out... mmm, quality control.

So if you want a packet just drop me an email with your address. My direct email address is I answer all emails personally (with help from my opposable-thumb-equipped mama).

You KNOW I'm hankering for some of that jerky, man. (I hinted as much didn't I?) Glad you read between the lines to see that I'm DYING here.

Hey, I thought you weren't going to post any more juicy nose shots for my girl until she got her next chapter done. We'll call this one a freebee for her.

Goober love (and sitting at the mailbox waiting for my FIRST delivery of tasty jerky),

Hand out the goob smooches to your mama and your jerky-making dad!

That is so nice of you and your folks to think of us. I wish stupid Australia would let your excellent jerky through.....but our pinkies are going to make it so we won't be missing out. Thanks for the recipe Bogie.

Your matie

Maggie is the Queen of letting mom know when the mailman is passing by the front of the house! She barks non-stop and runs to find mom! She has a real love/hate relationship with the poor guy! Thank you, Bogie!

Yer friend,

Just call me the with snail mail sent! I'm so excited, this definitely has my spirits back in order..1st AireZen, now Jerky!?! What more could a pup want??

I'm so glad you do quality control, too - nothing against your humans but my mom has been tricking me with food to take my medicine as of late and I'm not particularly too trusting of them right now ;)

Thank you for the offer to send us some of your yummy looking jerky. Our big mean girl is being a total jerk jerk jerky girl and says we can't have any because it makes us fart. We keep trying to tell her that we have never tried yours before and it is better than other jerky and we won't get the stinky farts. She doesn't believe us though :-(

Thanks anyway for the offer.
