Colorado Cool Stuff:  HIPPIE DAWG DOG TREATS



“I’ve always made homemade dog food and treats for my dogs,” Susan Mountjoy says. “I don’t like reading unpronounceable ingredients on the back of a box.” She gave out a batch of her treats as gifts to friends in 2007 and the ecstatic response led her to start baking professionally. “Everybody wanted to buy more.”

She now makes all-natural treats with ingredients like salmon, oat flour, buffalo and sweet potatoes and names like Born to Be Wild Bones and Flower Power Cookies. “I name them after hippie icons,” she says. “Hippie is coming back — I’m coming out of hippie retirement.” $6 for an 8-ounce bag retail.

Made by Hippie Dawg Canine Bakery, Glenwood Springs, (970) 984-3757, www.hippiedawgcaninebakery.com. Also available at High Tails Dog and Cat Outfitters at 50633 U.S. 6 in Glenwood Springs.
