    Today, I got a job. It's as a baker for a dog bakery and the lady who hired me is trying to get it established so we're doing samples (free) for right now until we can hit upon a proven product that all dogs will eat. Don't laugh, it's a real job. I also got called about another part-time job today for an interview on a day when I can't possibly make but am trying to rearrange my schedule and a vital meeting regarding a part-time job for just February. From zero prospects to many. I'm happy but don't know how realistic the bakery will actually be unless she can get her doggie daycare clients to actually want to buy the treats. Currently, am recouping expenses plus a bit extra but it's all being plowed right back into supplies for the treats. Anyway, it's a job. :)

    Am making liver brownies tonite. Horrible smell but my doggies love them. Dh and DDs aren't crazy about the smell. Not sure I am either. Have to make 2 more batches of cookies by Mon for the owner. Gotta love the baking of treats and finding a recipe that I want to work with.

    Congratulations!

    I'm not laughing. I've known someone who sold doggy baked goods at one time. Pet owners like to pamper their pets, and wouldn't you rather buy them something freshly baked than something from a box, with all those chemical additives?

    Still, price is a factor. This would be a sure thing in New York City, but in Kansas it might take more work.

    Liver flavored, huh? Ya might want to suggest to your boss that dogs love regular baked goods, too.

    You know, there was about 30 billion $$ spent on pets last year so if anyone laughs it may be you and your boss all the way to the bank. Glad you found a job.
