Dog delivers dog food from food truck in viral video
Phew, there it is.
Paws on the sidewalk, a golden retriever named Lily serves healthy puppy food in doggy bags as one of the world’s first dog food truck servers.
And the viral video of the perky dog foraging for food for its canine clientele has its tail wagging on social media.
“She loves other dogs, people and treats,” owner Michael Ludden told The Post.
“So this is the perfect setup for her.”
Ludden, 38, and his wife, Tanya, founded the Original Dog Treat Truck Company last April and trained Lily, 8, to deliver their freshly made dog treats to puppy customers at food truck parks in Austin, Texas.
Images of Lily carrying a bag of plant-based treats to patrons at downtown Austin’s Picnic Food Park on Saturday have racked up more than 11.5 million views on TikTok.
In the trendy clip, the hospitable dog comes out of the food truck, holding the bag of snacks by the teeth. She then gently shakes her client’s hand, thanking the woman for her appreciated business.
“I am so thankful that the world is fortunate enough to fall in love with Lily as much as we love her,” said Ludden, who has raised her golden daughter since she was 8 weeks old.
“She’s so friendly and sweet. I always knew she had viral potential.
Lily, Charlie’s twin sister, was first named the food truck’s ‘treat delivery specialist’ last spring, when more and more people began to house dogs during the pandemic.
“When the pandemic hit, business really picked up and Lily was more than happy to help place orders for all customers,” Ludden said.
He and Tanya make organic, grain-free, gluten-free made-to-order doggie bites with prices ranging from $ 8 to $ 12. Woof Waffles, Four-Legged Froyo, and NutriPooch smoothies are their best sellers.
And as compensation for distributing the dog’s treats, Lily is paid in praise, belly rubs, and treats. On her days off, she enjoys swimming in large bodies of water and going on hiking adventures with her family.
“He’s honestly one of the bravest dogs in the world,” Ludden exclaimed. “I think that’s why she’s the best at delivering treats.”
“She does everything with love, not afraid.”
