Sweeps4Bloogers Potcake Collars Review


Review – Potcake Collars

October 24, 2010

Potcake Collars
Bark. Play. Relax.

These collars are beautiful – bright colors and fun prints.

When I heard the name of the company, I thought maybe it was a typo and that it should really start with PET instead of POT. But no. Potcake is the correct name and here is the story behind it:

“Potcake” is the Bahamian term for the thick, leftover food that remains in the bottom of a pot of peas ‘n rice after several reheatings.Traditionally, Bahamians fed potcake to the outdoor, indigenous dogs that freely populated the Bahamas. Hence the dogs have come to be known as Potcakes. Although officially considered mixed breed dogs, the Royal Bahamian Potcake is now a recognized breed in The Bahamas. They have distinct characteristics of size and temperament. This is because, until very recently, all island dogs shared the same isolated gene pool. This makes the Potcake an extremely unique species of canine. Throughout the islands, you can see many of these local dogs that are in desperate need of a home and someone to love them.

So now I know what a potcake is!

And I also know what a Potcake Collar is. Each of the collars has an island look – makes me wish I was on vacation (ok… it doesn’t take much to make me wish I was on vacation…) The collars at least remind me of an island vacation.

The collar in the top photo is the Creamsicle. The colors would work well for a boy or girl dog. There are lots of other colors and designs available.

There are 3 sizes – small, medium and large. Each one can be easily adjusted to get a good fit.

All collars are machine washable.

I love this version of Rodeo Clowns. Jack Johnson rocks this perfect surf song to some insane waves.

Enjoy yet another POTCAKE certified JAM from our soundtrack… be sure and make it part of yours.

Amigo The Potcake

AMIGO was a young former stray ‘Bahamian Potcake’* found starving and diseased on Grand Bahama Island. Little more than skin and bones, face etched in misery, covered in mange and filled with fear, he was rescued by BEKIND founder, Frances Hayward, then head of The Humane Society of Grand Bahama.

AMIGO, after rescue in 2001 and AMIGO in 2004, featured in a HSGB ad run in a Dupuch Publications Tourist Magazine 

 Physically rehabilitated, AMIGO, with his adorable looks and sweet, extroverted personality became the perfect poster dog/star for The Humane Society of Grand Bahama’s National Awareness Campaign. Soon his face was everywhere as he became a major media personality in the Bahamas, referred to as ‘Potcake Star Amigo’ as well as an Ambassador of Hope on behalf of homeless and challenged animals.

Amigo has since passed away after a battle with cancer while living in New York. The legend of Amigo lives on.

A playful website for children that teaches the significance of being kind to animals has been created. Geared for children of all ages.


A Bahamian style music video to go with it, staring Amigo…

ONLINE Snook and Tarpon Tournament update

Mike Smith Scores first in Capt Jeffs online Tournament

Mike had a strong showing and is leading the tournament.

He lost a 100lb fish right next to the boat and measured a 42 inch tarpon to be first on the board.


Good luck on your second night maybe next time you’ll measure that 100 lber!

Potcake Collars is glad to be a sponser of the Capt Jeff Online Tournament. You can register right up to the end of the tournament and fish any two days you want and wherever you want.
