    Product description

    We're a small company with a big mission.
    We want to see all dogs in need get the love they deserve.
    How does it work?
    We give a percentage from every sale directly to organizations who actively work toward rescuing dogs from desperate, life-threatening, and dangerous situations. This is the key, this is where together we all can make a difference.
    Our dog treats make a difference too.
    We want our dog biscuits to make a difference too. For most of us, our dogs are our best friends and our children. We’ve learned that the quality of food you give your dog is directly proportionate to how long your dog lives and the quality of life they enjoy. Which is why we’ve done extensive research on dogs and their diets and found that nearly every ailment can be traced back to a food allergy. Over time, these hidden allergies weaken the immune system and allow a whole host of health issues to get out of hand. Even though dogs are truly omnivores, they aren't designed to eat a lot of what we feed them – many are allergic to wheat and rice – which is why we start off baking our treats with Garbanzo Bean Flour. From there, we add ingredients that are the least allergenic, 100% Human Grade, 100% Natural Real Food items. There’s nothing in our treats that you wouldn’t feel safe eating yourself – in fact, many owners actually sneak one now and then!
    But seriously, our recipe is kept simple and basic to promote good health. We don’t add any edible plastics, waxes, glycerins, hydrogenated oils, gelatins, chemical flavors or artificial preservatives, we add only the best for canines.
    Yipper Snappers make an excellent, simple, low-calorie snack that won’t upset tummies, crunchy for keeping teeth clean, and great for puppies.

    International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day February 23

    February 23 is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day which is celebrated all around the world. It's also know as National Dog Biscuit Day in the United States. On this day it's traditional to spoil your dog with dog biscuits.
    dog biscuit is a hard biscuit-based dietary supplement for dogs or other canines, similar to human snack food.
    Dog biscuits tend to be hard and dry. Dog biscuits may be sold in a flat bone-shape. Some manufacturers claim the dry and hard biscuit texture helps clean the dog's teeth, promoting oral health.
    ...................................................................................
    This holiday is referred to as a "International" Day- 
    However, I did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though I didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized through social media to celebrate.  So enjoy the day and have fun with it.

    Origin of this Holiday
    My research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. 

    Recognition about this holiday from:
    I found this holiday listed on many calendar sites and personal Internet sites that blog and share information about this day. Many of these blogs talk about dog biscuit facts and share recipes for making dog biscuits at home.


    What Type of Holiday is this?  Food Holiday / Animal Holidays

    ..........................................................................................................................

    The History of the Dog Biscuit Industry
    By most accounts, the history of the industry begins with a man named James Spratt. An electrician from Cincinnati, Spratt had patented a new type of lightning conductor in 1850. Later in the decade, he traveled to England to sell it. According to industry lore, he had a quayside epiphany in London when he saw a group of dogs eating discarded hardtack, the cheap, tough biscuits carried on ships and known to sailors as "molar breakers." The first major chunk of today's pet industry was born.

    In 1860, still in England, Spratt unveiled Spratt's Patent Meat Fibrine Dog Cakes, a combination of wheat, beetroot, vegetables, and beef blood. Before long, he had competitors with names like Dr. A. C. Daniels' Medicated Dog Bread and F. H. Bennett's Malatoid Dog Biscuits. The products embraced the dubious science and the lightly regulated hucksterism of their era. (2009)

    World's Largest Dog Biscuit
    The world's largest dog biscuit weighs 279.87 kg and was baked to be 2,000 larger than average by Hampshire Pet Products from Joplin, Missouri, USA.

    Benefits and Uses Of Sweet Potatoes


    Sweet potatoes and yams (Bitter Yam) are botanically distinct, although the terms are often used interchangeably. Yams have pale flesh and grow in Asia and Africa, while sweet potatoes have bright orange or yellow flesh and grow in tropical regions of the Americas. Sweet potatoes, are an excellent and inexpensive staple to have on hand. These deep orange-fleshed nutritional powerhouses add several important components to the diet. Their health and weight management benefits far exceed the nutritional value found in ordinary white and yellow fleshed potatoes.

    This post is in honor of:
    National Cook A Sweet Potato Day - Celebrated February 22 in the US
    National Sweet Potato Awareness Month - Celebrated November
    National Sweet Potato Month - February

    Benefits and Uses of Sweet Potatoes
    • Superior fiber content : Sweet potatoes contain almost twice as much fiber as other types of potatoes. Contributing close to 7 grams of fiber per serving, they make an excellent starchy addition to any meal. The high fiber content gives them a "slow burning" quality. This basically means their caloric energy is used more slowly and efficiently than a low-fiber carbohydrate.
    • Heart-healthy : They contain a large amount of vitamin B6. This vitamin is crucial in breaking down a substance called homocysteine, which contributes to hardening of the arteries and blood vessels. Vitamin B6 helps keep the walls of these important blood passageways flexible and healthy which allows blood to flow freely.
    • In addition, sweet potatoes contain high amounts of potassium. Potassium plays an important role in lowering blood pressure by ridding the body of excess sodium and regulating fluid balance. It is also an important electrolyte that helps regulate the natural rhythm of the heart, and maintains normal function of the brain and central nervous system.
    • Rich in beta-carotene : Beta-carotene or vitamin A is an important antioxidant. One medium sweet potato provides your body with the complete recommended daily allowance of vitamin A and then some. Vitamin A is useful in the prevention of several different types of cancer as it is one of the most potent antioxidants out there.Beta-carotene also helps to internally protect your skin from sun damage by both deflecting and repairing cell damage caused by excessive UV exposure. It also is an excellent nutrient for eye health and has been linked to prevention of vision loss and macular degeneration.
    • Cancer : Sweet potatoes also contain the polyphenol anti-oxidants caffeic acid and di- and tri-caffeoylquinic acids, which are the substances that may have cancer-fighting properties.
      • Breast Cancer : Researchers in Japan tested sweet-potato extracts on rats with breast cancer. The results, published in 2005 in "Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry," showed that amounts equivalent to 5 percent of total-feed weight reduced the number of tumors relative to a control group and inhibited the growth of new tumors.
      • Gallbladder Cancer : A study involving 64 cases of gallbladder cancer and 101 cases of gallstones gathered evidence to determine any links between specific foods and cancer risk. Those with gallstones are believed to be at a higher risk of developing gallbladder cancer. The scientists published their results in 2002 in the "European Journal of Cancer Prevention." They concluded that those who ate vegetables, including sweet potatoes, had a decreased risk of developing cancer.
      • Kidney Cancer : A Japanese review, published in June 2005 in the "Journal of Epidemiology," didn't find any links between specific vegetables and the development of renal-cell cancer. However, the researchers did find that those who consumed three to four starchy roots -- including sweet potatoes, regular potatoes and taro -- had a lower mortality risk. They advised that more research is needed, because their study was small.
      • Leukemia : One study investigated sweet potato extracts on promyelocytic leukemia cells. The Taiwanese researchers published their findings in the April 2007 issue of the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry." They found that the potato extracts were able to inhibit growth of the leukemia cells. Although the results haven't been tested yet on animal or humans with leukemia, the researchers concluded that sweet potatoes may be useful as a cancer-preventive substance.
      • Liver Cancer : Laboratory mice with liver cancer were treated with the anti-oxidant anthocyanin extracted from sweet potatoes. The scientists reported in the Chinese journal "Wei Sheng Yan Jiu" in 2008 that 150 mg of anthocyanin caused a 33.33 percent reduction in the growth of liver cancer tumors.
      • Lung Cancer : A study in Taiwan of 301 lung cancer cases, 602 hospital controls and 602 neighborhood controls investigated the link between the consumption of local foods rich in vitamin A, such as sweet potato leaves, and the risk of lung cancer. The researchers concluded in their review, published in 2007 in the "Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition," that those who ate the most sweet potato leaves had a 43 to 65 percent reduced risk of developing lung cancer.
    • A great source of manganese : Manganese is a little-discussed trace mineral that has some great health benefits. It is a pivotal component in the metabolism of carbohydrates which helps support healthy blood sugar levels. This can help stabilize the appetite for hours as opposed to the temporary satisfaction that comes with most other carbohydrates.
    • It also is a cofactor in enzymes that play an important role in the generation of energy as well as the efficient utilization of antioxidants. It is used for the treatment of anemia and is useful as a treatment for several premenstrual symptoms in women as well.
    • Rich in vitamins C and E : As if being one of the top vegetable sources of beta-carotene weren't enough, sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins C and E. These are potent antioxidant vitamins that play an important role in disease prevention and longevity.
    • Both vitamins also play a huge role in the health and beauty of your skin and hair, making them popular supplements. The combination of beta-carotene, vitamin E and vitamin C in one food makes the sweet potato one heck of a "beauty food". These nutrients all contribute to a healthy, glowing complexion and vibrant hair. wikiwel.com

    Thirsty Thursday

    For college and university students, Thursday is sometimes referred to as the new Friday. There are often fewer or sometimes no classes on Fridays and more opportunities to hold parties on Thursday night and sleep in on Friday. As a consequence, some call Thursday "thirstday" or "thirsty Thursday".

    ....................................................................................................................

    UrbanDictionary says....
    A term normally found on college campuses, the title became popular when many people did not have early morning classes on Fridays, allowing them to drink and party on Thursday night. Every Thursday of every week durring the semester is Thirsty Thursday; there is no specific or special date for it.

    Dude it's Thirsty Thursday! Stop studying and have a beer!


    Pioneered by business school students who don't have class on friday like everyone else. Thirsty Thursday's is the worship of the gods of alcohol intoxication with limited consequences. Most important at colleges with a high commuter to on campus population ratio.
    The best parties on campus are on Thirsty Thursdays.
    .......................................................................................................................

    But we have found out that everyone promotes "Thirsty Thursday".
    Everything from groups, organizations to hotels, bars, grills and restaurants.
