Dogs Scream for Ice Cream
Canine ice cream truck debuts in London
London canines get their own ice cream truck. Brilliant!

Each year the British consume an average of 50 ice creams per person, according to Boomerang Pets Party spokesperson, Sally Bezant. With 10.5 million dogs in the United Kingdom, that’s a lot of pups missing out on the cool summer treat.

 
Not anymore. Now London canines have K99, their own ice cream truck with flavors like Dog Eat Hog World (a gammon and chicken sorbet topped with biscuit) and Canine Cookie Crunch (a combination of mixed dog biscuits and ice cream).
 
Last month, the truck made its first stop in Regents Park where it played the Scooby Doo theme song instead of the traditional ice cream truck chimes. K99 will be making appearances at British parks throughout the summer. The ice cream is being sold for a 99p donation to the Berkshire Search and Rescue Dogs.
 
Not in the United Kingdom? Check out my crew’s favorite homemade doggy ice cream recipe. You can modify it using any of your pups’ favorite fruits and treats.
