Doggie food truck trend refuses to die
Doggie daycares are so yesterday. REAL hipsters go to doggie food trucks, where pups can lick a meat-flavored frozen treat:
There’s the Sit ‘N Stay Pet Cafe in Orlando, Florida … which serves “truly healthy gourmet treats” using “human-grade, locally sourced, organic, natural and humanely raised/harvested ingredients.” … In Elizabeth, New Jersey, there’s the Frosty Pooch, an ice cream truck which also offers other treats like bones and cookies. And in Austin, Texas, there’s Bow-Wow Chow, which sells a “variety of all natural, preservative free, locally baked, fresh pet treats as well as specialty treats, such as Doggie Ice Cream.”
And in Chicago, Fido To Go Gourmutt Food Truck has been serving gluten-free, sugar-free doggie frozen yogurt, cookies, and birthday cakes since May 2011. (Don’t worry; dried beef tracheas are also available.) The frozen yogurt comes in mouthwatering flavors like venison or duck and sweet potato. There’s even cheeseburger frozen yogurt, because burgers shouldn’t only be enjoyed when snatched off your owner’s unattended dinner plate. They’re not the only doggie ice cream truck, either:
Rachael Ray even launched her own doggie food truck to promote her eye-rollingly named Nutrish dog food — we had our pup correspondent comment last fall. I’m telling you, doggie carts are the hot shit! Or at least surrounded by hot shit, which is almost as good.
