It's rarely a good idea to indulge dogs with cookies and cakes—unless those cookies and cakes are made specifically for them. That's exactly the case at The Paws of Nature, where owner Kirsten bakes homemade treats for pups. Kirsten and her friend, Michele, had the idea to create a neighborhood pet store with a twist.
