Fido down in the dumps? I have just the thing.

Beer for dogs. Yes, really.

Kwispelbier is a non-alcoholic beer with beef extract concocted by a Dutch pet shop owner for her weimaranars, although apparently it is sutable for other breeds of mutt too, and is fit for human consumption, if rather expensive - at four times the price of Dutch cooking lager. Given that dogs tend to do a lot of things sober that humans do when drink has been taken, I do not suppose we will be seeing a vast outbreak of canine malfeasance

Thanks to Werner for the story.

One thing for shure is that it does not fit in the german "reinheitsgebot"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinheitsgebot), so it cannot be sold under the name of "beer" in Germany. Personally I think beer with beef is a bit like - crisps with roasted lamb flavour :)

I have heard tales of cider production historically including a dead rat or two, although this may well be an urban, or rather rural, myth.

Meanwhile, have you heard of hedgehog crisps?

I would have tried the hedgehog crisps. To give truth the honour I liked the lamb flavoured. We´re still starving for Walker´s Salt and Vinegar over here. Very hard to find them. Only source seem to be some "Subway" shops. Here´s an incredible link about everything and more about crisps http://www.taquitos.net/ .

Ref 'Europe Be Fruitful & Multiply' + 'C - post it anywhere while problems last':

HK Chief wants HK women to breed more (3 babies each as opposed to current 0.9).

HK limits/fines heavily pregnant women arriving from mainland China. Even if they want to stay???

(Both stories will 'google-out', my latest neoligism).

'Course, in The Blighted Isle you always have joined-up government.

Not one of my best - preferred the HP-eggs.

They should invent a champagne - or at least a Sancerre - for cats. Cats don't do beer.

Somehow I cannot imagine beer of any description appealing to cats, so you may well be on to something there.

They could call the chilled cat drink Champagne on Mice

Or Pouilly Fishy.

Or, if your cat prefers a smooth, warm, sophisticated red, Cotes du Bone might do the trick.

I have owned dogs that enjoyed both beer and wine , before anybody accuses me of animal abuse they would always drink it by choice if I left a glass unattended.
I did give one of them a pint on the morning i was going to have him put down.

Harder drinker felines might prefer a Tom Cat Collins.

A lovelorn tomcat could be sitting on a barstool at 2 a.m. The only other patron at that lonely hour would be a large frog, three or four barstools down.

The tomcat could sing, "Set 'em up, Joe. There's a little story, I want you to know ...

"Make it one for my baby, and one more for the toad."
