From a dog’s perspective

Hello friends.  Kobe here, the 100-lb yellow lab, that was the inspiration for RunMyErrand.  I’ve been begging my mom to let me write a blog post, but she is such a control freak.  I finally managed to convince her.

My life has changed a lot since that cold February evening in 2008.  I remember it vividly, because I was starving and my parents were buzzing around the house getting ready to go somewhere.  I’m not sure where, but the frantic running around is common in my house.  All I wanted was my kibble and bits (and bits and bits), so I sat there staring at them with a stoic demeanor … that always grabs their attention.  Finally, papa went to fill my bowl, but something was wrong … there were no more bits in the bag.  Panic.  Attack.  I mean, seriously guys, I can’t go without two hearty meals a day … I’m not some little chihuahua.

As the parents tried to figure out how they were going to feed me, the idea for RunMyErrand was born.  I actually never got my dog food that night (sad face), BUT I did get a bowl full of dog treats.  That was a sweet score.

One of my favorite places on earth is Polka Dog Bakery.  I’ve been in a few times to sniff around, and they’ve got some fancy stuff.  Their homemade treats are just the thing to satisfy my complex pallette.  Okay, I lie, I’ll eat anything you put in front of me, but man do those treats always looks SO GOOD.  One of the best things that has come out of RunMyErrand is a partnership with Polka Dog Bakery, so I get my dog food automagically delivered to our door every 6 weeks (you can chose the right amount of time for you).  No need to rely on the parents anymore to remember (because they won’t), it just shows up and I get fed.  No interruptions.  No mess (except for the one I make with my nom-noms).  It’s brilliant!
