Humans apparently do not like to drink alone—and neither do cats. We will even lower our standards to drink, dare I say, with a dog (if there are no humans around). Well what do you know. There’s this company (Woof and Brew) “across the pond,” (that’s how humans talk when they describe this kingdom, called “Great Britain”) that makes beer, wine–and hangover tonics for cats and dogs. So you can even share a hangover cure with your human.
I invited my doggy friend, TommyBoy, to share a beer called, “Bottom Sniffer,” a beverage for dogs with healthy stuff like iron and iodine. After drinking a few bottles, we bragged about how many fish we each caught (I beat him of course, as dogs are pretty lousy fishermen). TommyBoy bragged that he was better at chasing cars, but who in their right mind would chase a car? I lost that one. We also boasted about our respective love lives, and I think we all know who came out ahead in this arena. TommyBoy drank far too much beer so I had to share the hang-over tonic that got rid of his doggy breath and made him feel better.
There’s even a wine for dogs AND CATS called “Pawsecco, ” made up of elderflower, nettle, ginseng, and lime flower. (Unfortunately, my clueless caretaker did not buy me a bottle of wine. Very thoughtless of her.) I understand after drinking a few glasses of this elixir, you feel like you’re in charge of the world.
Woof and Brew even makes an herbal tonic, called “Windy Hound” that helps get rid of unpleasant orders that erupt from a dog’s rear end. Or as the company says, “a few caps a day keeps the farts away.” (Cats rarely fart, and if they do, their farts smell like lavender on a sweet summer day.)
