R'uh R'oh - My Shiba Puppy Likes Beer...
  • My 14 week-old puppy Kaze got a whiff of my beer that I'd just finished and showed an interest in my pint glass. He definitely liked the taste of what little left I had at the bottom of the glass...I was fascinated by this as I've never really seen dogs go after beer before.

    No, I'm not going to start giving him beer...not until he's three (21 in human years)!

    Just kidding!

    My Shiba isn't into beer, but I know a lot of dogs that are. It makes perfect sense if you think about what's in beer. It's called liquid bread for a reason! My friebs's husky is crazy about beer, and if you're not looking she'll help herself to what's in your glass!

    My Shiba is all about it as well, every time I crack open a Guinness he makes his way to my lap and tries to get a swig lol

    We don't drink beer, but both my boys love to get their noses in our margaritas when we have them pool side. I think it is the salt my husband likes to put on the rims that interests them the most and the ice cubes even though they usually also have a bowl with water and ice cubes too.

    Bowpi the Basenji is a foam sniffer, and will help herself to a lick if you're not careful. Bowdu, luckily, has more sense. What's funny to me is that neither dog liked the Bowser Beer that's supposed to be specially formulated for dogs...

    This is not a joke.

  • Both of mine like wine (licked from the finger). My girl will pester folks at wine tastings. Funnily we know what sort of wine each likes. My girl likes dry (but not too mineral laden) french whites and blanc de blancs, and my boy likes Argentinian Malbecs. Neither of them are interested in beer or anything else that we drink (alcoholic or not).

    I did know a jindo that unfortunately had a taste for vodka based drinks though (his owner spilled a lot so it was always a race to block him off whenever she spilled).

    Both of mine appear to like beer. Nola will go so far as to knock over a beer bottle if someone is careless enough to leave it on the floor. Luckily neither have been able to get more than a lick or two before someone cleans up the spill. Nola is clumsy enough as it is, I can only imagine what would happen if she were to become intoxicated as well!

    Chuji liked licking the inside bottom of my empty wine glass a few days ago. At least I know she has good taste

  • Years ago we had a wolf hybrid who would go around parties and knock people beers over and lick up what was spilled. Was going to the motorcycle shop and picked up a 6 pack on the way. While I was in the shop he pull a can out of the plastic ring and bite it enough that he punctured it and was licking it as it oozed he. He was a beer slut.

    Suki's a coffee fiend and prefers either the last bit of my americano or latte. We were at a show last weekend and paid a fortune for a 'latte' and I offered her a bit of the foam which she declined - clever shiba - it was the most disgusting coffee I've ever had!

Howdy, Stranger!
