Delivery has gone to the dogs

But, again, it's only for the dog — so the chain is not recommending (or advising) that owners munch along on the treats with their furry friends. On the other hand, humans are welcome to enjoy Burger King's other burger creations, like the Green Bay Whopper Sandwich, which boasts an incredible amount of cheese: eight slices to be exact.


To get your paws on a Dogpper, humans just have to order an actual Whopper through DoorDash. If you use the code "DOGPPER" now through Dec. 4, the app...
