Restaurant For Pooches Opens In Australia

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A restaurant for dogs has opened in Australia, which serves up tasty fare for hungry hounds.

It may sound like a barking mad scheme to some, but Chew Chew, in Sydney, is proving a massive hit with its mouth-watering range of meals for mutts.

dogThe menu features dishes such as beef steak with mushrooms and chicken wings, fish soup and chicken wings and lamb bones.

If owners` pooches fancy a coffee, no problem, but Chew Chew serves its `doggie-cinos` with a sprinkling of dried liver treats."

In these hard economic times when many folks are surviving on Top Ramen and mac and cheese, a restaurant for dogs may seem to be in bad taste. But I think a restaurant for canines is an excellent idea, nothing is too good for man`s best friend.

The menu sounds absolutely delicious, if only McDonald`s offered such appetizing entrees. If I take Mandy and Midnite to a restaurant for hounds, I would order a plate for myself. I might even take a doggy bag home with me.

Many times I`ve taken a lady to a fancy restaurant, and received zilch in return. If I take my pooches to a dining establishment, they will lick me in gratitude.

Critics may complain that a dog will eat its own poop, and it`s silly to lavish them with gourmet meals. I beg to differ, my pets have discriminating taste, they rarely deign to eat dog food, usually they eat the same thing that I do.

I wish Chew Chew all the success in the world!
