A Cold One For Man's Best Friend!

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- After a long day hunting, there's nothing like wrapping your paw around a cold bottle of beer.
So Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt.
"Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the veranda 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 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 $2.14 (or 1.65 euro) a bottle, it's about four times more expensive than a Heineken.

Boy, I thought I spoiled my dogs!-lol

I'm glad someone else saw that. My wife thought I was nuts when I told her about it. It caught my eye 'cause we've had two weimaraners, although neither ever had beer:)

Thanks for the comments everyone. Chris, I'm glad I can confirm that you aren't crazy, but I think that the people who come up with some of these pet products must be! Thanks, but my dogs enjoy good old H2O just as well.
