National Dog Biscuit Day origins
Well, no one knows exactly how the day came about but the rise of the dog biscuit treat has been on the move since the 1800s. American James Spratt, on a trip to England, brought good old American ingenuity to bear on the problem of the many stray dogs who were hungry and scavenging for food. He created what became known as “meat fibrine dog cakes,” cake-like biscuits that contained vegetables, meat, and grains. A New York company called the F.H. Bennett Biscuit Company, came up with those pet-owner delights of hard-baked dog biscuits in the shape of a bone and called them “milk bones.” Ring a bell? These dog biscuits remain a great hit among dog lovers to this day. So why make your own? The popularity of dog biscuits eventually led to a national celebration.
