Doggy doughnuts at Krispy Kreme

You must make a stop by Krispy Kreme on Saturday for the cutest dog treat. I’ll definitely be treating myself while I’m at it, too.

They may look like real doughnuts, but these Doggie Doughnuts are actually hard, baked cookies specifically designed for any dog breed. They’re even pumpkin spice flavored!
