booze hound!

a brilliant dutch pet shop owner has FINALLY invented beer for dogs! it is made with beef!

"Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the verandah and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it," she said.

Berenden consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the nonalcoholic beer, branded as Kwispelbier. It was introduced to the market last week and advertised it as "a beer for your best friend."

"Kwispel" is the Dutch word for wagging a tail.

The beer is fit for human consumption, Berenden said. But at euro1.65 ($2.14) a bottle, it's about four times more expensive than a Heineken.

i hope it tastes better than heineken, too.

on another note, if you do a google image search for "drunk dog" there are a disturbingly high number of hits. my goodness.

HEY Wally! I love beer! It makes my neck all silly, I dont get much but when my hoooomans go to the "pub" I sit under the table pretending to be good (you know all that eye rolling stuff and paws etc usual drill!) then my Pa pours his beer into a clean ashtray.....

All for me! hic! hic! oooops, hic!

The cruel world looks a much better place then! Love your posts! They are always so up to date with stuff.

My last post just now was pretty sad, cruelty to dogs yet again, in a country like the UK, supposedly the "animal loving" place.

Any news on Posh Spice yet? Or Becks?????!

love and sad licks Marv xxxxx

Actually, the ash trays here in Scotland are always clean, we have the Smoking Ban In Public Places Law in place for months and months now.

England gets it in force in July!

So clean ashtrays for Dogs to Drink Beer From! Hic!

love and slurry licks, Marv xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
