Dogs Now Run (And Fetch) On Dunkin'

If you’ve been working from home for the last few months, there’s a good chance that your new officemate walk on all fours, is lazier than most of your old cubicle mates, and their stories are marginally better than Susan’s. Another plus is that they don’t ever ask for anything if you decide to go on a coffee run, because Starbucks still doesn’t make a chicken liver and salmon frappuccino. But now, thanks to a collaboration with the folks at Bark (esponsible for popular subscription service Barkbox) and Dunkin, Fido can enjoy a coffee break along with you.
In support of Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation whose mission is to “provide the simple joys of childhood to kids battling hunger or illness,” both brands are offering dog toys modeled after the doughnut-and-coffee chain’s hot cup and Munchkin box, which includes three squeaky, fetchable versions of their ubiquitous doughnut holes. Money raised will go to support programs such as “Dogs for Joy,” which supports in-residence dogs in hospitals. These puppers help calm child patients and put the kids at ease during procedures and treatments.
Lest you doubt the ability of Dunkin to create fun dog toys, the foundation’s Chief Joy Officer and ambassador Cooper, a lab/golden retriever mix and trained in-resident dog, has personally tested them and approved the chew toys.
