This is pretty cool--the Lucky Labrador Brewing Company in Oregon is doing a fundraiser for the dogs who do search and rescue and save the naked apes from themselves. And the beer sounds pretty tasty, too:

As a dedication to the dog, Velvet, who kept her human companions warm throughout a cold, stormy night at 7,400 feet, the Lucky Lab has brewed up Velvet Oatmeal Porter, a full bodied, bold ale with a nice blend of chocolate malt and rolled oats.

"It was a natural for us to honor the dog that helped the folks that were stranded on Mt. Hood," said Head Brewer Alex Stiles. The Lucky Lab will donate a portion of the sales of the beer to event.

I'm just confused by their logo. That looks more like a lucky shepherd. Or maybe a Lucky Ethel (who is so lucky to be my sis!) I guess it's probably Velvet the dog. I wonder if she gets to drink any of the beer?

Naw Velvet the rescuer was a lab mix they said. Not a very flattering photo of her.

Give Ethel a kiss for me and tell her to go to the posts of her and see what I wrote about her.

Maxey the infatuated.

You and Ethel should start your own micro-brewery. Or may just a still out behind the garage.

Does Ethel have her own blog?
