Pack, the social network for your dog, doesn't have a full-fledged app just yet, but it's got the next best thing: "one minute of happiness when you need it."

Snack by Pack is a bite-sized app that delivers some of Pack's best dog photos straight to your pocket once a day. 

The iPhone app was built in four days during a Pack retreat in Boulder, Colo., and Pack CEO (and Big Omaha alum) Megan Casey said it's just an "appetizer" to the main Pack app the team is building now. 

Simply choose a time and five pups are sent to your iPhone every day for a little morale boost.

The Pack team recommends waking up to your Pack Snack: "Almost as good as having a dog lick your face in the morning. And a little less soggy."

Your own dog can be featured just by being a member of Pack.

Snack by Pack was built by John Hobbs and designed by John Henry Müller, who both have Nebraska ties. Pack is headquartered in Los Gatos, Calif. — Source: Pack blog
