There's McMuffins, McNuggets and McDLTs, but the news these days from McDonalds in the Elmira, N.Y., area is an Mc of a different taste McBone.The king of fast foods is serving up free doggie biscuits to burger-buyers who bring their pooch to the drive-through window.

So far, the response has been great.

"The customers really appreciate it," says Michael Huffcut, supervisor of the Ithaca-Elmira McDonald's restaurants.

The new service is being offered only at seven McDonald's in the area.
