People in Seattle love their food trucks.  There are trucks that specialize in bread, ice cream, smoothies, cupcakes and more.  In addition to snacks and sweets, you can find good meals, too, including Cajun, Indonesian, Mexican, Hawaiian, and fusion fare.  But food trucks aren't just for humans anymore.  Now, Seattle's canine residents have a truck that caters to them, too.  

 

The truck, nicknamed "Buster" by owners Dawn and Ben Ford, is home to the Seattle Barkery, a bakery that specializes in treats for canines.  Buster is easy to spot.  He's a 1968 Chevrolet step-van that has been painted bright turquoise with red accents.  Buster can be found at dog parks, at farmers’ markets, at private parties and in various neighborhoods that have requested their services.  

 

The main menu consists of treats made with doggy favorites, like peanut butter, pumpkin, carrot, turkey and beef.   The treats are all made fresh daily with human-grade ingredients.  The most popular item on the menu is the Bacon Pupcake, which sells for $2.50.  That is followed by the Mini Cheezy Donuts, which cost $2 for four.  The third most popular item is the Doggie Ice-cream Sundae, which is served in an edible bowl topped with bacon sprinkles and goes for $3 for a single scoop and $4 for a double.  

 

Since humans always accompany their customers, the Seattle Barkery serves up coffee and a few treats for them as well.  And like most restaurants in the US, tips are welcome.  But the tips at the Seattle Barkery don't go to the waitstaff.  All tips in the tip jar go to the Old Dog Haven, a small nonprofit group that provides homes for abandoned senior dogs.
