'California Roll over, Rover' — Sushi for dogs


Yesterday's USA Today story about the new new thing in canine delights — "a hand-rolled dog snack that looks and smells like fish" — follows.

    California Roll over, Rover

    Think of it as sushi for your dog — no chopsticks required. Pet Botanics Omega Treats, a hand-rolled dog snack that looks and smells like sushi, is just hitting pet store shelves. The basic ingredient is fish and, as at your favorite sushi restaurant, there are varieties to choose from, such as cod rolled with tuna, salmon or duck.

    Good news for doggie dieters: They have just 9 calories each and are loaded with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. "They won't give your pooch a paunch like a lot of dog biscuits will," says Tony De Vos, president of treat maker Cardinal Laboratories.

    For people who think of their dogs as dogs — and not family members — the $4.99 tab for a 6-ounce bag may be over-the-top, De Vos says. "But people do crazy things during tough times to take their minds off their troubles, and for under five bucks, it's a cheap thrill."
