Consider it mission accomplished, in just one day: The $100 Dragon Dog from Vancouver’s very own DougieDog food truck sold out their by their second day at the Calgary Stampede.

The fancy and pricy hot dog, which DougieDog owner Dougie Luv first showcased in Vancouver in 2012, is infused with 100-year-old cognac, and is topped with Kobe beef, lobster, and truffles.

Luv brought the Dragon Dog to the Calgary Stampede, complete with its usual $100 price tag, and brought enough supplies to sell 100.


All 100 were sold in the first day, reports The Canadian Press.

Luv told the media that as soon as they opened up the truck at the Stampede customers were calling up to reserve their Dragon Dog. He says he will return to Calgary with more Dragon Dogs soon to make up for running out so fast this time around.
