We’ve extended our Christmas/Hanukkah gingerbread line to include the family dog this 2013 holiday season. Why? Because they asked for them! AND, for each Gingerbread Dog House sold in 2013, we are donating $5 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Animals, the ASPCA®.
We’ve accumulated some amusing stories over the years about dogs taking a particular interest in our holiday gingerbread houses. Perhaps the most entertaining anecdote was the massive Rhodesian ridgeback that ate not one, but two, of our Large Gingerbread Houses in one Christmas season. We thought maybe it was time to let the dogs have their day with their own gingerbread dog houses.
The Gingerbread Dog House is modeled after the dimensions of a typical all-American dog house. A gingerbread dog bone sports the name of the family pet (or family surname) above the door, and a gingerbread dog sits guard on the porch. Owners select from a black, tan, yellow, white, or black-and-white dog to match their pet’s fur. They can also elect to have us make a custom dog for an additional fee. Dog names or family names may also be hand-iced on the roof. Incorporating only dog-friendly ingredients, all features are edible. As with all of our gingerbread houses, everything is crafted by hand. The base model starts at $99.
We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have a loyal and growing following for our holiday gingerbread houses, and we’re so grateful for people like Kelly Ripa and journalist Frances Schultz for being vocal fans of our products. We’ve been shipping our gingerbread creations to Grammy winners, Oscar winners, Emmy winners, authors, members of the Forbes 400 and Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential people since 1995. We think of our own dogs as family members, and we know many of our clients do too, so we asked why should they be left out during the holidays? And by supporting the ASPCA®, we are helping homeless dogs find homes of their own too…
