    OMG.... I have been making my own dog food and cookies for years now!! I have been wondering how to market it to sell. We have a lot of pet shops and such around here but I am worried about the liabilities if someones pet became ill eating my food or treats.
    Does anyone know about this? I would love to do this from home.... I LOVE to cook! Just ask my thighs!!
