And you wonder why pets are fat?
Posted by: McQ on Monday, January 22, 2007

Heh ... enabling the canine beer belly:
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.
Beef extract and malt?

Yeeeeeeccch!

4 times the cost of a Heineken? Yeah, I'm buying a dog that beer. And you can't even get a buzz.

Also consider the bubbles in the beer creating a doggie gas problem a few hours later. Make you and your mutt really popular with the missus.

And we’re talking 4X more than Heineken costs in Scandinavia. Beer runs somewhere near the $6.00 US mark there (or did 5 years ago when I was there).

I love my dogs, but at that price I’d rather give them beer WITH alcohol in it ;-)

Beer in the Netherlands is less expensive than in Scandinavia. ’Tailwagbeer’ is € 6.95 for 4 beers I found ;)

Personally I think a lot of pets are also fat because there bosses are lazy.
