It was January of 2000 when Edwina, a pit bull lab mix, came into my life. Edwina came from an abusive home and I knew from the moment I saw her "help me" eyes that we were destined to be together. Edwina needed a good home and I needed a companion. Within weeks, her toy bin was full, she gained a healthy bit of weight and even made our elderly family dog very happy by becoming her mental stimulation. Every year she got a halloween costume, Christmas bells, Thanksgiving dinner and birthday cake. So when people ask what inspired me to make doggie treats for a living, all I have to say is "My Edwina". Although Edwina has since passed, every treat is handmade with the same love that I felt while baking for Edwina. I truly believe that every dog deserves a quality life that is loving and healthy. That's why it is Fi-Dough's mission to offer delicious treats that are made of the best ingredients and sold at an affordable price.
Founder, Fi-Dough, Inc.
Patti is an avid dog lover and when she is not barking at Jeff, she is baking fresh biscuits for your furry family and hers. She is excited to test bake new recipes until she gets the paws up for perfection from her dogs, Bree, Willow and Scarlet. Sometimes the girls catch her munching on “their” treats! And why not? The quality of ingredients makes them not only delicious, but shareable!
Love of all the four-legged tail-waggers at her home and yours, is what Patti is all about. Patti’s signature response when her daughter calls to ask her what she’s doing? You guessed it: “I’m baking!”
This is Jeff. He brings the biscuits to the table, so to speak. You will often find Jeff manning the display at the various farmer's markets and corresponding with our wonderful customers through our Facebook Fanpage. His dog is Lexie, who was a rescue from North Shore Animal League. Lexie loves Autumn in New York, which is why she was the inspiration behind Lexie's Pumpkin Patch!
