I used to give my dog the first half glass am foam of the day. If I didn't he would pout. One time I gave him a full pint out of a new keg as it was a little yeasty. He looked a little lit afterwords but seemed pretty happy. At 12 it was nice just to see him wag his tail

That used to work for my tail but it takes a few more than 'one' now-a-days.  Tails wear out over time and it's good to see your boy still has a little left in him!

maligniant hyperthermia is bad news. it can happen to humans too, usually as a reaction to anesthesia. 

about 30 years ago we had a left over keg from my sister's wedding.  sat around outside the next day at my brother's drinking it. his friend's great dane kept lapping up the spillage on top of the keg. seeing an inibriated great dane bounding around the yard was a little intimidating.

Just because they like it doesn't mean you should give it to them.  I know for a fact that dogs like slug bait, too, but it kills them.  Just like alcohol can.  If you truly love your dog, don't give it alcohol.

Yeah.  Is your kitten rolling a joint?

I'm so confused. Dog's shouldn't drink beer but it's ok for kittens to smoke catnip?
