You may not be able to actually munch on any of these quirky calorie-free treats, but I wouldn’t fault you for trying as they certainly look good enough to eat. Is it wrong that I want to fill that gilded burger locket with a dab of ketchup? Ha!

I’m not gonna lie. Sometimes I look at Toby getting belly rubs on demand or squeezing in a quick morning nap before his afternoon nap, and I think that’s the life! My mom always accuses us of treating Toby like a child rather than a pet (she’s totally guilty of it too), and it’s true that we often can’t resist spoiling him when he gives us the sad puppy dog face. Looks like I’m not the only sucker out there – just look at all these fantastic goodies out there for dogs! As unbelievable as it sounds, your furry friend can now join you for a dinner date of truffle mac & cheese and a cold refreshing beer – cheers!
