What caught our eye?
Marley's Gnarly Canine Cookies
Creating Gourmet Dog Treats



I believe every dog deserves the best dog food and treats available. Humans can choose what to consume while our dogs cannot. They depend on us to provide them with the nutrition they need. Marley's Gnarly Canine Cookies is commited to providing cookies with only the best ingredients such as grain free, organic and never processed. These may cost a little bit more, but our customers all agree with our company motto; "Because they're worth it!"

Lesson Learned

Success doesn't come over night and patience is key

Magic Moment

My first farmers' market. Dogs were lining up to try our treats. All happy customers.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
