    Some of you have read and commented on an older thread of mine where I had decided to make my own dog chews and stuff at home, so that I can better control what Diesel eats. Well, I've been making my own pigs ears for about a month now and people kept asking for some. So, I went ahead and made it an official side gig for me and the family. Would you believe, since Saturday, I have sold 66, YES...SIXTY SIX freaking pigs ears?!?!

    I believe it. My dogs love them but they are ridiculously overpriced at the retail level. Since I feed prey model raw my guys don't get them anymore. Good luck with it.

    I have a Facebook page that I set up last night for it. I've dubbed my brand Hoss's Pitti-Chews. I don't want to step on any toes here, without being a site sponsor yet...(yes yet). When I get home today, I will set up a PayPal for it so I can ship to places.

    My ears aren't smoked at all. I simply dehydrate them in 145 degree temp for 18-20 hours. Trying to keep it as natural as possible. But doing bones is certainly a possibility down the road. I will be adding sweet taters, liver and chicken treats soon. I just have to experiment with a combo I'd wouldn't mind feeding my dog too. That's kind of my hitch here...I won't make anything that I wouldn't feed my dog :)

    I source my pigs ears from local markets that cut and prepare their own meats. Bravo and Save-a-Lot here has kept me stocked up for the time being.

    You can put a link here, that's a member in good standing privilege. I don't like new people popping in to promote their sites.

    If possible, I'd like to sponsor the dog of the month contest or whatever it is here, buy offering two free Porky Pigs Ears to the winner. If we do that sort of stuff.

    here is a link to my Facebook page, also my wife set up a PayPal account last night, so we can start taking non-local orders and ship them out.
