On Sunday, Kevin had a big day of golfing, and I managed to pull myself away from 9/11 coverage on TV just long enough to take Parko out on the town. My friend Sarah joined us for a little walk to Thornton Park.
Parko had no idea what was coming.
A pet food truck! Sit ‘n Stay Pet Café is Orlando’s first pet food truck and one of the first in the entire nation. They serve up tasty treats for dogs and cats.
It was a pretty hot afternoon, so Parko appreciated the complimentary water out for the patrons.
Their menu features locally sourced, all natural, organic treats with fresh ingredients. It was very difficult for me to decide what to get Parko. I just had no idea what he was in the mood for.
Since it was a hot day, I knew ice cream would probably be refreshing, but Parko had never had ice cream before. Then I saw it: maple bacon “pup-sicles” calling out to Parko’s love of Beggin’ Strips. I ordered one pupsicle for my pup.
At first, he wasn’t sure what to do with it. The ice cream smelled like Beggin’ Strips, but the fact that it was frozen and Parko couldn’t quite get his mouth around it drove him crazy. The most ferocious licking ensued, but as it melted, he gobbled it up.
After returning home, Parko entered a bacon ice cream coma.
But the treats didn’t end there. I also picked up a pack of Puppy Sliders, featuring organic beef, which Parko got to try at dinnertime.
He seemed to really enjoy these as well.
The owners of Sit ‘n Stay were incredibly nice, and they both have veterinary backgrounds, so they really know what’s best for your pets. I was so excited to introduce Parko to his first food truck!
