As every dog owner knows anytime you sit down to eat you are bound to get some longing looks from your four-legged friend as they beg for scraps. The next time you're in a mood for a flame-grilled Whopper though Burger King has you and your pooch covered.
On Wednesday Burger King announced its latest creation, a "flame grilled bone" known as the "Dogpper."
The company says the Dogpper is a "dog-friendly alternative to the Whopper sandwich."
But any dog looking to get their paws on the tasty treat will have to tell their owners it is only available through Burger King's new delivery service via DoorDash.

In a statement announcing the Dogpper's release Burger King said they were inspired by dog owners who were tired of being "hounded" for a piece of their Whopper.
"The Burger King brand knows that dog owners often deal with their furry friend begging for food when they order delivery. Many dog owners have even admitted to sharing part of their meal with them. That's why Burger King is providing a solution for customers who want to enjoy their order at home without interruption from their pets."
For a limited time customers who order themselves a Whooper through DoorDash's website or app will also receive the flame-grilled bone when using the promo code DOGPPER from now until December 12th. New DoorDash customers can also score free delivery on BK orders over $10 until December 4th.
The announcement got tails wagging, and dog moms and dads everywhere couldn't wait to get their hands on a Dogpper for their furry friends.

According to Burger King the dog-friendly treats are made with oat flour, brown rice flour, real beef, cheddar cheese, eggs and sesame seeds, but the fast food chain reminds customers that they are only intended for dogs. We doubt that will stop anyone curious enough to try them though.

Some poor puppers will be left begging for scraps though. The promotion is only available to new DoorDash customers. And if you have more than one dog they are going to have to share since you only get one per order.

Time is running out though for people who want to share the flame-grilled flavor with their pets, so get it while you can. Let's just hope Burger King had a spare grill.
I guess y'all better hope they don't cook the dog food on the same stove as your food. https://t.co/PPo3XrKsbd— Microphone Crimnal (@Microphone Crimnal)1543684554.0
