Meet Gus


Y’all probably know by now that I love animals, all animals. My home is filled with all sorts of ‘em—goats, chickens, birds, cats, and of course my faithful dogs.

Gus is a two-year-old Goldendoodle, a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle, so he’s very smart. He is my constant companion—truly my sidekick because he seldom leaves my side! Gus may be the biggest of my three dogs, but that doesn’t stop him from thinkin’ he’s a lap dog. He’s always the first one to jump up and cuddle, and boy, do I love those snuggles!

I love to spoil Gus and the rest of my furry family. I’ve always made homemade treats for my pets because they deserve the best, just like the rest of my family. I know y’all love your pets just as much, so I wanted to make something that y’all can share with your dogs, too. With the folks at Hugs Pet Products, I was able to create healthy and delicious food—not just for my pampered pups, but for all dogs! It’s my very own blend of ingredients mixed with the know-how from Hugs.

Now, I know y’all have been hearing a lot from me about Hugs lately, so I thought I would share with you a little about this pet-centric company and the women that started it.  My friends, Katie Brewer, Barbara Davison, and Deb Whitlock, teamed up in 2009 to share a little love with their furry family members, and the rest was history! Hugs was born, and ever since, the family-operated company has made the commitment to always offer the best unique and innovative products for pets and pet-owners alike! “Why’s it called, ‘Hugs’?” you ask? Well, what shows your four-legged friends you love them more than a hug? Not much, except for maybe a good belly rub!

My Paula Deen Premium Select Dog Food from Hugs features three premium flavors: Beef & Rice, Chicken & Rice, and Lamb & Rice. Gus certainly doesn’t discriminate when it comes to food and treats, but this ball of energy can never seem to get enough of the Chicken & Rice. I tell you what… the fine people at Hugs sure know what they’re doin’! Not only do all of my dogs just love the taste, I love how healthy it is for them, and I know you will, too! Made with probiotics and all the good stuff, this calorie-controlled kibble will help maintain your dogs’ digestive and immune systems, keeping your puppies playin’ for years to come.

My dog food from Hugs is now available in my General Store, so be sure to pick some up for your canine companion today!

Paula Deen - As a young girl growing up in Albany, Georgia, Paula Deen never dreamed she would become an American icon. As a young mother, Paula was living the American dream — married to her high school sweetheart and raising two adorable boys — when tragedy struck. Her parents died, her marriage failed and she began a prolonged battle with agoraphobia. With her boys in their teens and her family near homelessness, Paula took her last $200, reached deep inside her soul and started The Bag Lady, a home-based catering company that marked the start of Deen's professional cooking career. With sons Jamie and Bobby delivering lunch-and-love-in-a-bag, beginning in June 1989, Paula turned her life around by sharing what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking.
