Win a Pastry Chef’s Gourmet Dog Treats

As some of you know, I write about food as well as about dogs (though rarely about dog food, because Frankie is diabetic). I’m the Contributing Dining Editor for Tucson Guide and have written food and spirits stories for publications that include Sunset and National Geographic Traveler.

All this to say, I get to hobnob with some terrific local chefs.

So one day I was talking to one of my favorites,  Janos Wilder, and bemoaning the fact that I couldn’t find a good dog sitter. “My pastry chef, Linda Zubel, has gone into the dog sitting business,” Wilder told me. “Why don’t you try her?”

I did. And she was great. She kept in touch with me as much as I could have wanted her to —  a lot — and even managed to outwit Frankie in stubborn terrier mode: When he turned up his nose at breakfast, she got down on the floor and pretended to eat out of his bowl. That got his competitive mojo going.

Perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that an animal lover who worked for a James Beard- award winning chef should also turn her hand to creating taste temptations for the furred: Zack N Boo’s Kitchen: All Natural Gourmet Pet Treats.

There are four different types of dog treats:

  • “Zack-O-Lantern” Pumpkin treats (pumpkin is healthy for dogs: see Of Pumpkins and Pooches)
  • “More Peanuts, Honey,” Peanut butter treats
  • “Luck-o-the-Irish Setter,” Potato/sweet potato treats
  • “How’s the Liver, Spot?” Beef liver treats

(Pastry! Dogs! Puns! This is a woman after my own heart.)

Linda also makes cat chews but we won’t discuss those here.

What we will discuss is the fact that she has agreed to put together a sampler pack of dog treats — all four yummy varieties — for one lucky contest winner.

Entering is easy. Just tell me in the comments section why your dog deserves these treats. The contest runs from one minute after midnight EST November 18 to 11:59 p.m. EST November 25. The winner — everyone over 18 in the U.S. and Canada is eligible — will be chosen at random. I’ll make the announcement on November 29. Winners will have three days to respond to the notice that they’ve won; after that, it’s on to the next person that the random machine chooses.

And as the logo on the top of this post indicates, I’m not the only one doing a giveaway. All the bloggers listed below are running contests too. So hop around. Enter to win stuff. How awesome is that?
