Bearded Collie?

The Beeb report that a small brewery in the Netherlands has launched a new beer designed to bring cool relief to thirsty dogs.

Kwispelbier, marketed as "a beer for your best friend", is made from a special brew of beef extract and malt.

The beverage is a creation of pet shop owner Gerrie Berendsen, who wanted her dogs to share light refreshments with her after a day's hunting.

The beer is non-alcoholic and fit for human consumption, but costs four times as much as a Heineken.

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

Ms Berendsen, who lives in the eastern town of Zelhem, commissioned the small local Schelde brewery to make and bottle the beer.

"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," Ms Berendsen told the Associated Press.

Methinks our friends from the Netherlands have been toking too much!

My dug can just settle for her usual........

We once gave our dog some beer. It was just a little bit I promise.

We were in Western and it was very hot so we stopped to get us a drink but there was no water for our dog. We tipped some beer into an ashtray, she loved it, but she walked away on three legs after that !

Our dog is a proper Scots dog and only likes a drop of the Malt, preferably something good and old and smelly.

Totally,

if you haven't already switched to version 2 of Blogger, which you should where the options are there to add elements simply to the sidebar as widgets i.e. a photo on it's own, email address etc, you will need to add some html code to your template under the sidebar area. Email me for further help!
