Once upon a Flyball tournament

It all started a long time ago in a faraway land called Indiana. I found some tennis ball fabric at a shop, naturally I bought it. I then made bandannas out of it for all the dogs on my Flyball team. The dogs looked great in there new team uniforms. All weekend I had people asking to buy them, so I made a bunch of bandannas and took them to the next show. They were a hit.
A couple of summers later Mad Dog Cookie Company was formed. My loyal companion lent me his name and attended a local start up farmers market. At that time all I had to offer was homemade dog cookies and bandannas.
Within a couple of more summers we were traveling to fests and craft fairs all over northwest Indiana, Illinois, and even north Wisconsin.
Since the early days I have dropped the cookies and bandannas opting for coats, hoodies, ties and toys. I even started a recycled coat and t-shirt line.
We make dog beds out of found pillow cases, and fill them with all of our fabric scraps. Then we donate them to local animal shelters. So the dogs and cats can have a bed. It also is a great way to Green up our business.
With the recent passing of the Mad Dog I am not sure what the future holds for Mad Dog Cookie Company but it will be crafty adventure.

    Mad Dog is the inspiration for my name and business. For 12 great short years he was my right hand dog. He travled to shows with me, helped to make sure things went well, and tasted every cookie I ever tried to make. RIP Mad Dog 1999-2013.
