“This is dog safe ice cream. So it’s lactose free. It’s got a nice vanilla flavor. It’s human-grade. So if you wanted to try it you can try it. It’s not very sweet. Then we serve it with kibble topping.So it’s a cute little doggie ice cream sundae.” said Mardi Larson, PetSmart’s senior PR.

“Loves it. She’s been eating all morning. We are having a great time. She’s meeting a lot of people and other pets. And she’s having fun letting people taking selfies with her.” said Samantha Carrell, owner of Tinkerbelle.
