And speaking of beer for dogs…

image By now we’ve all heard about the new Japanese wine for felines. If you haven’t, it could explain why your cat has started using your favorite shoes as a litter box. Not to point fingers, but I did write about this a few weeks ago, so you only have yourself to blame. Or at least, that’s probably what you cat would tell you.

Regardless, since then I have receieved dozens of emails about what some see as discrimination against canines for not providing them with their own special libation. As it turns out, they have. And as you might expect, I’d be the one to hear about it β€” which is why it will be the topic of this Monday’s upcoming post:

Cats May Have Their Own Wine, But Bowser Can Crack Open a Brewsky

As with every Friday, here is an audio preview of this Moday’s post. (Warning: For those of you with cats, I’d advise against letting them hear this)…

See you Monday! Assuming you aren’t cleaning your shoes…

    1. Believe it or not, I’ve had both a cat and a dog at all times for the last 25 years. It’s my contribution to the Yin and Yang. Which, by the way, will be the names of my two Siamese caats if I ever get a pair. (Of Siamese…)

  1. I am loving this new Friday thing you have going. I’m already looking forward to Monday…which is a BIG deal for me!
    In full disclosure, we have given our dog beer. He loves it, but it makes him sneeze. Come to think of it, our horse used to like beer and it made him sneeze, too. Hmmm….perhaps we should try something other than Schlitz? Or get a cat…our taste in wine is much better than beer.

    1. When I was a kid, our two Boxers would go around at parties my parents would hold and knock over people’s beers. Usually by pretending to sneeze. Then they would lap up the beer. I think I see a pattern here…

      And I’m so glad you’re liking the Friday audio “sneak peeks.” They are fun to put together and, hopefully, give people something to look forward to over the weekend. Aside from drinking beer with their pets… πŸ˜‰

    1. Fortunately, we don’t have a basement, so you and your dog are always welcome here, Lynne πŸ˜‰

      And thanks. I’m trying to channel a voice that’s a cross between Morgan Freeman and Pee Wee Herman.

  2. Love the previews. As a cat and dog owner (2 and 2) I think I need to think about getting them to join us in a few drinks at our favorite pub. They are much better company than most and shoot a good game of pool.

  3. WERE we speaking of dogs and beer??? LOL! I can’t give my dogs alcohol of any kind! There is no telling what they would do! ha ha! And yet another reason I no longer have a kitty…. πŸ™‚

    1. This makes me picture a guy walking into an AA meeting with a dog, and someine saying, “Sir, only those with alcohol addiction please,” and the guy saying, “Fine, I’ll leave then. I’ll be back for my dog when the meeting’s over.”

No one is watching, I swear...
