Tinkerbelle the Dog's Roman Holiday Looks Ridiculously Fun

Spoiled Sweet or Spoiled Rotten?

Imagine you're driving along the expressway with your pooch, and you decide to stop for a snack at a service area. If you happen to be in Japan, you can now get a bento box for yourself... and your pup. "Dora Bento Pochi" are gourmet boxed meals for dogs available at eight different service stops in the Tokyo area.

The East Nippon Expressway Co. has produced bento boxes in the past, but this is the first time they have created anything expressly for dogs and, by my account, the first, fresh canine cuisine to be sold at rest stops anywhere.

So, what's in the box? With no preservatives or additives, you'll find prime chicken breast, unpolished-rice based bread, vegetable soups, seasoning, and a rice cracker for dessert. Better yet, the lid can be turned over to serve as a water dish.

What do you think?

Love the idea! It would be a change from the regular food. If I'm going to spoil myself, why not her too :)

I don't like clothes and all that nonsense, but fresh food and then a water dish? Hell yes! My pup would need food and water as much as love and protection! He'd get the munchies like me if we were out trekking in the city all day!

OK, I just had to clear something up about the comment that there's nothing wrong with spoiling your pet. There's nothing wrong with REWARDING your pet with healthy snacks and praise, but these things must be used sparingly so they are connected with good behavior. LOVING your pet is to be done constantly (except when they are being bad). SPOILING your pet leads to obesity and bad temperament. I know I'm nitpicking, but I think it's important to question which one you are really doing.

Yes for health, but my dog trainer told me that dogs don't have tastebuds, so what's with the seasonings?

This is vastly better than feeding the dog processed, fried human food that people usually get in drive-thrus and allow their dogs to eat. I am an advocate for good, high-quality food, so I like this on the front. I also like that it lets you share something w/your dog. So sweet! ♥

Really, if my dog needs to eat its not spoiling him its just feeding him. I would FOR SURE use this product if i was without food for my lil guy.

I don't know if I'd feed this to them, that kind of food can upset some pet's stomachs esp if you're used to a certain kind of food.
