For many dog owners, surviving the mental toll of the coronavirus pandemic has been made much easier by the company and love of a good pooch. Maybe some have misbehaved at times or become a bit clingy, but it's not always easy living in human society, surrounded by a zillion things you'll never understand and just vibing with it day after day.
If you're feeling especially appreciative of your furry friend, Franklin Fountain has a got a treat for you — well, for the dog, but you can get some ice cream, too.
The popular Old City shop is debuting a new line of dog ice cream sandwiches on Friday and plans to sell them for the foreseeable future.
Fido Freezers are non-dairy sandwiches made with coconut ice cream and gluten free cookies to protect dogs from wheat and dairy allergies.
"We noticed a lot of folks treating their pups to Franklin ice cream, so (co-owner Eric Berley) suggested ice cream sandwiches that cater both to the tastes & tummies of dogs."
Franklin Fountain's Fido Freezers will be available for $2.50 apiece in three flavors: Cheddar Bacon Bit, Pretzel Strawberry and Peanut Butter Oat. They've been dog-tested and approved, according to the owners.
