Needless to say, that one of the best ways to dine is in food trucks. But is it fair that only humans are lucky enough to enjoy the delights of a four-wheeled restaurant? I don’t think so. Thanks to The Seattle Barkery named Buster, our furry companions can enjoy food trucks too.
While Seattle offers many great things, it has set the bar high by establishing the canine food truck thanks to Ben and Dawn Ford. Now, dog owners can combine the two best things in life; having a delicious meal with their four-legged pals.
The first-ever dog food truck in Seattle is a hit! Although the two had no experience in food trucks, Dawn was eager to convince her husband to open one and so they did.
It wasn’t easy to pull off the dreamy truck. A lot of work and efforts were carried out to make it happen; mainly law and permitting. When they finally received a business license, back in October 2014, it took them about eight months to launch their first event.
People are loving the Seattle canine food truck and dogs can sniff it from distances and pull their owners all the way just to get something yummy. Dog owners come in the winter as well. They like warming up with the Buster’s roasted “Middle Fork” drip coffee and during summertime, the delightful cold brew and the “Six Strawberries” ice pops cool their bodies.
While the tuck offers all sorts of refreshments and drinks for dog owners, it is mainly dedicated to four-legged creatures. It is no question that the Buster is dog heaven; they can get bacon cupcakes, peanut butter pumpkin pretzels, even duck necks! Guess what – they are all homemade.
There are also delights that aren’t homemade such as beef bones (from BBQ restaurant), cute bow ties (from the local Pawfect Boutique) and the Puppy Scoops doggie ice cream.
There’s even a tip jar out for a rescue, and “fospice” for senior dogs called Old Dog Haven. Happily, in the course of 10 months, they have raised more than $2,000 just from putting out a tip jar.
The couple is looking forward and planning to establish another truck hopefully by the end of the summer. Moreover, they wish to offer feline treats in the future as well.
