I understand that our pets are our family. Our dogs are allowed in ours cars, in our homes, and on our coaches. Sometimes we treat our animals better than we treat other family members.

This explains why a new study from PR Newswire found one in six people usually buy their dog something when they go through a fast food drive-thru.

McDonald's is the most popular place to get something. You know how puppies love the dollar menu! The rest of the top 10 are: Burger King . . . Wendy's . . . Taco Bell . . . Starbucks . . . Sonic . . . Chick-fil-A . . . Dairy Queen . . . In-N-Out Burger . . . and Culver's.

I love my dog but the thought of ordering her a kiddy cone or a happy meal has never crossed my mind. Maybe this makes me a bad pet owner.
