Sneak Peek at Our New Treat!

How about a Grain Free Sweet Potato & Apple treat for your pups to enjoy!  Our new treat recipe has just been perfected & will go thru some rigorous taste testing by some picky (and not so picky) canine volunteers.  Our official bakery taste tester, Stella, has given them two paws up already (one picky dog down, & 30 more to go!)

Of course, I’ve tasted them (and made my children taste them) & I will have to say….they are delicious! Sweet potato, apples, cinnamon…what’s not to like! 

Here’s a sneak peak…fresh from the oven!  Hope to have these as part of our selection very soon!

Products We Like!

So, we’ve decided to add some “Products We Like” to our website.  These are items that we really like, that are tried & true, and just plain fun! 

We’re excited to have a ”Rescue” category!  In addition to the 10% from each order that goes back to our “Rescue of the Month” beneficiary, we will be donating an additional $1.00 from each item in this category.  We’ll be expanding this over time, and we’re really thrilled to be able to add a bit more to our fundraising efforts!

Our primary focus will always be our delicious, homemade treats, but we thought we’d have a bit of fun with some “products we like“…we hope you will too!

Seattle Dog Show!

We had a great weekend at the Seattle Dog Show! Gorgeous show dogs, adorable dancing dogs, and the agility dogs were amazing!  So many rescue groups came to educate people on what they do and talk about dogs that were looking for their forever homes.  We had a good time meeting people at our booth…I’m sure their dogs will quickly become Nyima Bakery fans (how could they not!?).  Our raffle prize winner will be announcd on March 18th!  I snapped this pix Sunday…he had his comb out & was waiting to show – what a cutie pie!  Take a look at a few  more fun photos from Seattle Dog Spot

Rescue of the Month: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue!

The Nyima Bakery is committed to supporting rescue, adoption agencies & shelters by raising money and awareness.  Each month we will be featuring an animal rescue & 10% of every online order will go back to support their efforts.  

March’s rescue beneficiary is Motley Zoo Animal Rescue based in Redmond, WA.  Follow them on Facebook, you never know…you may be able to help one of these pets  find their forever home.  

We know all rescues & shelters can use some help so we’re taking this task on one rescue at a time.

We hope you’ll give us a try!
