    Default Kobe went on a binge last night

    My husband occasionally enjoys a drink after dinner. Last night he made himself a Jack and (diet) Coke and left it on the end table while he went to the bathroom. When he returned, Kobe had jumped up and was happily lapping it up. He drank half the glass without spilling a drop!!

    After my husband shooed him out of it, he licked his chops for about five minutes, laid in front of the fireplace, farted a couple times and went to sleep like he normally does. He didn't appear affected. Got up and walked about like normal.

    We had a beer spill out by the pool once and Marty obsessively licked it up. Are dogs drawn to liquor? They never bother the diet Coke without booze in it. If I'd have drank as much as Kobe did I'd have been a little buzzed, but he seemed unaffected.

    Are dogs better able to process alcohol than we are? Anyone else have a booze hound??

    Take care,
    Lisa

    No booze hounds but we did have a horse that loved beer! We would tie him to the trailer after a ride and if there was a wayward beer left within his reach he would tip and sip!

    i think it's the sugar and the fact that it tastes different than water.

    i have my cup of coffee on the table and was making a cake. I turn around and saw my bug slurping the coffee. He was not much different after lol

    Oh Clyde drinks my coffee or tea too (not on purpose do I let him have it)! He is obsessed with it. And it's not that there is anything in it, I drink it black so I am not sure the draw other than it's mine.

    My 2 will do the same thing whether it's coffee or water and I think it's just because 1.) they know it's mine and 2.) they know they're not supposed to!

    Cassius has repeatedly tried to drink my coffee and he always tries to lick the top of my Sam Adams beer. Jess sniffs the beer bottle and sneezes.

    Chuck and Edgar don't really show much interest in whatever I'm drinking. They're obsessed with whatever I'm eating though!

    MuShu has sampled my coffee but regrets it, I think, because I leave my coffee mug on one of those plug in warmers and it is pretty warm. I know she's had some because she is licking and licking her muzzle while backing up from the cup. Needless to say, she doesn't sample it anymore!
