Serena Williams got really sick after tasting her dog’s gourmet food

Serena with her Yorkie, Chip.

During her stay in Rome where she’s competing in the Italian Open, Serena Williams is camping out at a hotel with a pretty impressive doggy menu.  

The food is expensive but apparently it looks so delicious that the tennis star couldn’t help but try it. Williams’ 3-year-old Yorkie Chip travels with her but she doesn’t have his food with her, so she ponied up 15 euro ($17 US dollars) for his lunch on Wednesday.

Yum. So the next day she got Chip the salmon and rice dish. (Snapchat video via Alysha Tsuji):

We’ll see if she looks sluggish at all on the court. After defeating Anna-Lena Friedsam on Tuesday, she’s set to face No. 56-ranked Christina McHale in the third round on Thursday.

To be sure: Most dog owners would be lying if they said they hadn’t tried or thought about trying their dog’s food. It’s cool, Serena.


So many tasty options.
