Scout & Zoe’s is all about dogs. We absolutely love dogs and everything about them; they are our passion. And that is the single reason why Scout & Zoe’s exists. We want to be your place to talk, learn and love all things dogs.
But since you clicked on the About Us tab, you probably want to know more about us....me, Scout and Zoe. Okay, we’ll open the curtain so you can see who we are and why we are doing what we do.
Around our house, I’m known as the Momster to all of our furry critters. In most other areas, people know me as Cindy Dunston Quirk. I have always loved animals ever since I can remember, especially dogs. As a child, my parents raised Pekinese pups so that was the breed we had as pets. As an adult, I lean toward larger breeds....German Shepherds and German Shorthair Pointers. But I still have a soft spot for any dog, no matter what breed.
I am most at ease when I am covered with dog hair from head to toe.
Scout and Zoe are our four-legged, furry kids. I take them with me wherever I go and whenever possible; they are my constant companions. I told you I really love dogs!
Zoe is a thirteen-year old German Shepherd and has a pretty good life despite her allergies. She is very active and remains a slim, beautiful girl. She loves to play keep-away, spending alone time with the Momster, sitting in the sunshine and attempting to be the boss of Scout. Sleeping on the bed and riding in the car are her favorite pass times. All that and getting a treat!
Zoe trained and received her Canine Good Citizen certification in 2000, passing with flying colors and is the model of balance and calm in our home.
Scout is the latest addition to our family. He was born on Father’s Day in 2008. And yes, his twos were terrible. Constantly the source of chaos in our household, Scout loves to run through the house as well as the yard chasing anything that will run away from him....especially squirrels. His very favorite activities are enticing Zoe to chase him, jumping on the bed during the middle of the night, waking everyone up at the crack of dawn and pulling the stuffing out of Zoe’s toys. Oh yes, he still carries around his blankie Mamaw Vee made for him.
Scout is a graduate of doggie manner and etiquette classes. He has learned the fine art of being selectively obedient.
The reason this company exists is because of our dedication to Scout and Zoe and their allergies. Due to extensive allergies they have had their entire lives, neither could enjoy any bovine products--bones, rawhide, or anything beef flavored.
So I began to search for items for them to chew on to exercise their chew drive and help with cleaning their teeth. Boy, that was a long search! Ten years to be exact.
Antlers are rugged, hard, solid and won’t splinter like bones will. These provide the exact qualities I wanted in a chew for my doggie pals. And there is the added bonus of the chews actually being good for them. Trace minerals of calcium and phosphorous are in all antlers. WOW! What a combination.....great to chew on and good for both Scout and Zoe. The perfect storm!
