BING'S BARKIN' BAKERY
Bingís Barkiní Bakery was established 2001 when my husband and I discovered that our 11 year old dog Bing - a pit bull / lab mix - had developed arthritis. I felt sad that Bing was so uncomfortable and wanted to do something special for him. I decided to bake him a batch of treats - all natural peanut butter bones. After Bing tasted his freshly baked (not stale store-bought) treats, he seemed to get a little spring back in his step! I called my veterinarian to see if he thought the treats could have had an effect on Bing's condition, and while he couldn't say if there was a direct relationship between the two, he told me to just keep on baking!
Then I thought, if Bing enjoys these treats so much maybe other dogs would too. So I started giving out samples to my friends and family for their dogs and the feedback was incredible! All shapes, sizes and breeds of the canine community loved Bing's treats. So I found myself in the kitchen baking more and more treats and adding more and more flavors, and Bing's Barkin' Bakery was born!
We welcomed a new dog into our family too, Lucky - terrier mix - was a stray who was hit by a car near my husband's job in 2003. Lucky had to undergo major surgery to repair a massive fracture in her right hind leg and damage to her pelvic bone. But luckily, Lucky made a full recovery and has taken on an active role in our family and at Bing's Barkin' Bakery! Bing has welcomed his new sister with open paws and we now have two very satisfied in-house taste testers! Incidentally, Bing is now 16 years old and I can't help but believe that his long, happy life is a result of lots of love, toys to play with, and yummy homemade treats!
Our business was started all for Bing, this website is dedicated in loving memory of him.

We have a new addition to the family - meet Marvin (a.k.a. Marvin the Moosh)
We adopted Marvin in 2007 from Rawhide Rescue (rawhiderescue.com). He has a sad story - Marvin, his sisters and brothers were rescued from a shelter by Rawhide Rescue. When they were picked up they were a mess - they had mange, cuts and urine burns on their paw pads. It was sad, but Rawhide Rescue came, saved them and found foster homes for them. After we lost our beloved Bingy I felt Lucky needed a new playmate, so I started looking at lots and lots of pooches on petfinder.com website. And there he was - Marvin - I fell in love, a six month old pit bull mix. Two days later we took Lucky to meet her new "potential" brother (we had to make sure they got along) and they hit it off. Marvin was the perfect moosh and we fell in love with him the minute we met him. He is so happy in his new home with his new sister tearing up the house. They love to play with each other, sleep on one another and get delicious homemade yummies that mom makes.
