On May 7, a new food truck for dogs will hit the streets of Chicago, Illinois, USA.
The truck, called Fido To Go, sells ice cream and baked cookie treats for dogs. Tracy Werner, one of FTG's owners, said she came up with the idea by watching a segment about food trucks on TV.
"Everything I see on the news, I automatically go: Dogs—how does this relate to dogs?" Werner said.
FTG will make its debut on May 7, at Chicago's Bark in the Park. The truck will run through October, stopping at venues across the city like dog parks and other dog events.
