OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — We heard about bakers making cookies and cakes for football parties on Sunday. But this was different!

  • "Paw-stry" chefs at Woof & Whiskers near 147th and Maple Street created several dog treat designs inspired by both teams and their players, coaches and a superstar fan.
  • They baked more than 500 treats and sold out midweek, then made hundreds more to meet demand by the big game.
  • Clearly, people love them. What do dogs think? "They don't care who's decorated on it. That's more for us and the fun of it for us. They just like the cookies themselves, you know? They don't admire the work like we do," the owner, Kramer Martin, joked with 3 News Now.

Here's copy from the on-air version of the story:
People can't have all the fun on Sunday. We found the coolest dog treats - handmade in northwest Omaha.

At Woof & Whiskers near 147th and Maple, bakers have been hard at work designing and making cookies.

They sold out of everything earlier in the week, but have more now.

Like the trophy, Taylor, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and his brother - Jason. That design was inspired by his shirtless moment during the Chiefs' AFC Divisional win over the Bills.

We joked with the shop's owner about dogs' reactions.

"They don't care. They don't care who's decorated on it. That's more for us and the fun of it for us. They just like the cookies themselves, you know? They don't admire the work like we do," Kramer Martin said, laughing.

He is a lifelong Chiefs fan. In addition to owning the shop, Martin is on the Omaha Fire Department, but he previously worked on Kansas City's.

So, yes, that's who he's rooting for, but Woof & Whiskers has several San Francisco-themed cookies, too.
