Cheers: A beer for dogs

Canto enjoys 'Kwispelbier', a new alcohol-free beer specially brewed for dogs in Zelhem, Netherlands. Bowser Beer in the U.S. is made out of meat broth and malt barley, and comes in chicken flavor.

This final note today, which combines two of my favorite things.

A company in Seattle has come up with a beer for dogs. Non-alcoholic to be sure. Non-carbonated, as well. Bowser Beer, it's called. Meat broth and malt barley, apparently. Believe it or not, it's sold in 42 states. Also comes in chicken flavor.

On a related note, this Friday is Take Your Dog to Work Day.
