Duke – The Story of the Neater Feeder – Inspired by Rescue Dog



The Neater Feeder was inspired by President Fernando Becattini Jr.’s rescue dog, Duke. Here is the story:

For Duke, the third time wasn’t a charm. We’re not exactly sure what Duke did back in 2006 on that two hour drive from Philadelphia to Baltimore to convince his new owners that he was more than they had bargained for. Whatever he did, it was convincing. Duke was only two years old when his third attempt at finding a happy home failed (the couple from Baltimore returned him to the rescue shelter for German Wirehaired Pointers without ever getting him out of their car). Luckily for Duke and for us, the Becattini family came along soon thereafter and Duke finally had a home.

It didn’t take long to understand why his previous owners were less than impressed with Duke. He was a sweet and loveable dog, but he had a nose for finding trouble and absolutely no table manners at all. In fact, on more than one occasion we found Duke, all 95 pounds of him, standing on top of the dinner table eating the leftovers off the plates. We even caught him eating fried eggs out of the frying pan on the stovetop while they were still cooking! However, there was a silver lining in Duke’s sloppy dining habits. The mess Duke and his sister Dakota made when eating and drinking would eventually inspire the creation of the Neater Feeder.

Help rescue dogs, you never know what they might inspire in you!
