Not Your Everyday News

Tuesday, January 23, 2007


I am a dog person, they (along with cute adorable bunnies!) are simply
the best animals around. But obviously someone in Holland REALLY
thinks dogs are special. Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in in the
Dutch town of Zelhem, has created a non-alcoholic beer for her pet
Weimaraners. It is made out of beef extract and malt; Berenden
consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the beer for her. It is
called Kwispelbier - Kwispel means 'wagging a tail' in Dutch, bier
naturally means beer. It was introduced to the market last week; the
ad slogan reads "a beer for your best friend." Kwispelbier is fit for
human consumption, but since the starting price (about 1.65 Euro per
bottle, or 2.14 US dollars) is actually more expensive than a Heineken,
I tend to think it will remain an upper crust doggy treat!

Lola's crazy friend in Philly, FurryJohnson, is all about this stuff. She can't wait to find it and feed it to her dogs!
