Meet Your Hosts – The Bakery Girls

Biscuit, Cupcake, and Muffin – Faces of Puttin’ On The Leash 2021



A sweet and petite Lowchen, Biscuit is quick-witted and sensitive. Her favorite past time is racing with her favorite stuffed brown dog to the best treat spot – mom’s kitchen! Always willing to share the last pup-cake, Biscuit’s exuberance brings a smile to all who meet her.



STAR BAKER ALERT! Muffin is quiet but confident in the kitchen. This maltipoo loves to bake her humans their favorite treats, as long as she can work from the comfort of their arms – she calls it work-life balance.



A voracious and enthusiastic pastry critic, Cupcake will be the first to taste a bakery treat and then ask for another! This toy poodle was adopted from a local shelter and you’d never know she only has three legs as she bounds towards the nearest Paw-tisserie.

These three bakers are the adorable companions of HSBV supporter, Linda Wise, and the inspiration for saving thousands of lives at Puttin’ On The Virtual Leash! We think you’ll agree, these girls have a certain je ne sais PAW about them and we couldn’t have sweeter mascots to represent what this event is all about — coming together to celebrate lifetimes of love between pets and people!

Bid on Face of Puttin’ On The Leash for your pet to be the inspiration for our lifesaving event in 2022!
