Today's dog owners are increasingly treating their pets like fur babies, feeding them human food (when they're old enough), dressing them up in outfits, and taking them along everywhere they go. But that can present a problem when enjoying a fine dining experience, as one New York City dog owner recently demonstrated.

On Monday, The Cut writer Anna Silman tweeted a photo that her friend, a chef at an "extremely fancy NYC restaurant," sent to her. It was an image of an order ticket he received and it is very specific.

Given that certain foods that are acceptable for humans can be dangerous for pups—such as garlic, onions, salt, pepper, and dairy—it's not the craziest list. It might seem a bit extreme to order a hunk of medium rare beef for an animal, but in fact, it's what's best for the dog.
