Shoreline business owner creates winning Girl Scout cookie dog biscuit

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

And the winner is ... the "Wagalong," a dog-friendly visual clone of the famous Tagalong Girl Scout Cookie.

Created by Shoreline resident Dawn Ford of The Seattle Barkery, (see previous article) Wagalongs are featured in a Dog Cookie Recipe Cookbook resulting from a month-long contest sponsored by Seattle Humane and Girl Scouts of Western Washington.

"Since dogs can’t eat real Girl Scout Cookies - but we’re pretty sure they wish they could - we created this contest as a fun way to share the Girl Scout Cookie love while spreading an important message about pet adoption," says Stefanie Ellis, Public Relations Director of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington.

According to Laura Follis, Media Relations Specialist at Seattle Humane, the contest shines a spotlight on the close partnership between the two organizations.

"We gave shelter tours to 56 Girl Scout troops last year and they each came with donations to benefit Seattle Humane, including cookie money, hand-made blankets and toys, and bags of food from pet food drives."

Pet, food and lifestyle bloggers were invited to enter dog cookie recipes - adhering to dog-safe ingredient guidelines - and were told "the more recipes look like Girl Scout Cookies, the more you’ll make us smile!"
Dog-si-dogs took second place

Second place went to "Dog-si-Dogs" by Renee Valenti of Reflections Remembered, and third place went to "Pumpkin and Carob Dog Cookies" by Leslie Johnson of Chasing Rabbits Dog Bakery.

The Grand Prize was a $100 gift certificate, basket of pet-related items and apparel from Seattle Humane, a Mud Bay gift certificate, and Girl Scout Cookies.

Second and third place entries won Seattle Humane apparel and Girl Scout Cookies.
