Heladogs get tails wagging in MexicoBy Elliot Bullman
An ice cream shop in Mexico has started serving up frozen treats for pooches.
Dogs with a sweet tooth can finally satisfy their ice cream cravings, at the Don Paletto parlor in Mexico City.
Flavors such as "Gentleman" and "Lucky Lucky" are advertised on the shop's board, where the pets lick the treats off a stick, a cone or out of a bowl.
The puppy ice cream is safe for humans but is especially designed for pets, according to shop owner Mauricio Montoya.
It is made of natural yogurt and lactobacilli bacteria, which helps dogs to digest their food. Normal ice cream can cause pain and diarrhoea in dogs.
The ice cream is called a "heladog" - a combination of the Spanish word for ice cream 'helado' and the English word 'dog'.
“To eat the same food every day must be pretty boring for them,” customer Liliana says whilst offering an ice cream lollipop to her dog. But an entire ice cream shop for our pups is exciting and we hope to see more opening up!
