An Irish restaurant has announced that it will now cater for pets as part of its takeaway menu.

Thai takeaway chain Camile has introduced ‘the world’s first delivery doggy treat’, which will accompany weekend deliveries in Dublin as a means to cure ‘starving puppy eyes’.

Pooches all over the capital can now indulge in a takeaway treat upon delivery, made up of rice pudding and mango coulis and accompanied by luxury Madeline biscuits which will set their owner back €2.95.

While many have taken to criticising the menu’s addition, citing it as a clear display of over-extravagance, several happy pet owners have shared photos of their dogs enjoying their delicious dessert.

The move comes just weeks after the opening of a dog focused cafe on the south side of Dublin city, which offers a number of gourmet treats for dogs of all shapes and sizes on its premises.

The new venture has marketed itself as Dublin’s “first truly dog-friendly cafe” and will offer punters, both dog and human, healthy, allergen-free treats in an “urban dining” setting and a brunch menu is said to be in the works.

The new cafe will also play home to a Pupp Store, where dog owners can pick up designer collars, leads and harnesses as well as high-end treats for man’s best friend.

Those unfortunate souls without a dog of their own can look forward to meeting terrier Toby, who is said to be the brains behind the operation. The dog, owned by Ella and Paul, has helped them refine their doggy menu.
