Somethingy we learned after moving to Pencil Vane E Ah

Since we are NEW here we have LOTS (about 87) of thingys to learn about.   Like YESTERDAY when we learned that it could SNOW in Pencil Vane E Ah... even thought it is MAY.

Butt a really AMAZING thingy we learned about comes from 20 miles away... in  MEADVILLE, Pencil Vane E Ah...

THAT is where  DAD's Dog Food ...  was BORN...   and where Rachael Ray now has HER kibble made...  

YES,,,,   WE       Frankie Furter Price    and ....

ERNIE  the ignorant   von Schnitzel   live  LESS than 87 mins. from a FANG TASTIC  Dog Foodables Plant...
AINSWORTH PET NUTRITION....  
 And Welcome Us they DID....    We just Stopped IN and they talked to us and let us look around and stuffs like that...  
THESE next 87  few pics are from the Office area...    they have thingys that Show the HISTORY of this Fabulous Factory...
       THIS is a very Old  Cloth Bag... that has been preserved behind Glass...  and it tells about what DAD's Dog Food has in it....           SEE THAT...  MEADVILLE, PA   thingy?   THAT is the Town that is not far at all from OUR HOUSE...
 This is a Bigger portion of the Bag...     Of COURSE they No Longer pack it in Cloth Bags...
 THIS is what the ORIGINAL  Ainsworth Factory looked like...   it is a Painting of it.
 This Painting is what it looks like NOW.
     Ernie and I Sniffed all around the place and there were NO bad Smells and everything was so NEAT and Clean.  
      THIS picture shows a more Modern DAD's Bag...    Paper instead of Cloth...   BUTT, it is Still an OLD bag... and it is behind Glass also... that is why there is the FLASH mark in this picture.   We aPAWlogize fur that.
   
 Another view of the very MODERN Facility.
 THESE are some of the Special thingys that have been made, OVER ALL THESE YEARS, to commemorate this LOCAL BUSINESS.

MORE of the Ainsworth History.
They Advertised on Railroad Cars...
And at One Time, Dad's Dog Food was Delivered in 
Small Open Trucks.
      OH, by the way,  they also make Dad's CAT food.  
      Those are  pictures of the FAMILY who Started Dad's Dogfood and still own the company.
If you look Way DOWN at the bottom of this picture you will see a Pencil Vane E Ah  LICENSE PLATE... that the family once had on one of their vehicles.  Isn't it Cool Drool that they saved it all this time, and Now have it on display?  
 More of the Family and examples of how Packaging has changed over the years.
       Now THIS is their MISSION STATEMENT.    It tells how they operate their FAMILY OWNED and Operated business.  AND it tells how they feel about their obligation to keep the foodables that they make, SAFE and NUTRITIOUS.       TRUST US....  we saw the employees all dressed in WHITE with Hair and Beard nets and SAFETY HELMETS.     This is a company that CARES about their CUSTOMERS and their EMPLOYEES.          We are SO VERY PROUD to be living close to such a DEDICATED and CARING business.
    This picture shows their VISION and philosophy.   Aren't these words just BEAUTIFUL?
      THIS is the Bottom of one of the bags of RACHAEL RAY kibble...       It lists the Ingredients and ALSO   the AINSWORTH QUALITY GUARANTEE...
 We have come a LONG way from the ORIGINAL Cloth Bag that DAD's  was packaged in... to the NEW style SHINY bags that KEEP in the Goodness much better.   RIGHT???
       We want to show you the FRONT of the bag of foodables, BECLAWS Tomorrow we are going to be doing a REVIEW of Rachael Ray's  NEW foodable  called     dish.    fur our FURends at Chewy.Com.
        We bet that YOU can't Wait to hear what we have to say about this.     OMD just LOOK at the ingredients... pictured on the bag.        
         We hope you come BACK TOMORROW to hear what we thought.
THE END....

it sure sounds like this was the best thing you did - moving - you are closer to family - have got some new family (with little girl) and get to see so many more things.

Hey FnE!
Wow, that snow yesterday was crazy! Mom's car was frosted over today and she was very unamused. BOL. Oh, that dog kibble place is so great! I'll be barking about my Rachel Ray / Ainsworth yummers tomorrow. Gotta love supporting the local community.

Well, bust my buttons! You live so close to a dog foodables plant?!? And they let you go in for an inspection visit?!? That is really, REALLY cool! It seems that moving to Pen-sill-vane-ya was a good move for doggies after all!

Kismet said...

It doesn't look like they do what wineries do-give free samples at the factory. Boo Hisssss.

Sully said...

I never heard of Dad's dog food before and at first I thought your Dad is making his very own brand of dog food. Glad y'all cleared that up cause I was like I'm moving in with y'all. BOL

Aroo to you,
Sully

C.L.W.STEP said...

Wow! We love finding out how things are made and the history of the places that make them! Thanks for the great tour!

Oh, and we have clear skies today, at least so far. It's still kind of cold out, though. Hopefully things will be a bit warmer down your way in PA.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, how funny. Jan just opened our bag of RR Dish today. But the cats will be doing their review tomorrow and ours will post next week.

Your family goes to some of the neatest places.

How interesting! I learned a lot just reading your post! I've heard Pennsylvania is a very educational place - maybe that's why our mom went to Penn State? Who knows!
Yours sincerely

Murphy said...

It looks like this report pooped you boys right out! We do like their attitude about how impawtent dogs are and how we are family! We never heard of Dad's before. We thought that was rootbeer? And the employees wore hardhats? Did something drop on their heads?

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Did you get some samples to take home? We're glad you are so near that place, so you'll never run out of food.

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...
