APhoto of the Day — 1/22/07

Benito, a 5-year-old Chihuahua, drinks beer from a bottle in the southern town of Hulst, Netherlands Sunday. Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the town of Zelhem created a non-alcoholic beer for her Weimaraner dog made from beef extract and malt, and consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the beer, called Kwispelbier, after the word ‘kwispel’, which is Dutch for wagging a tail.

Top Cutlines

1. Benito, the animal actress in the new Mel Gibson movie ” The Passion of Dutchmen and their Pets”; parties with Mel just prior to her outburst accusing cats of starting all the world’s wars. She later admitted herself to re-hab — Paul L. Ferguson.

2. Lucky, the logger’s blue ribbon pooch is a trained malt licker, and is bigger than Glenn Miller in the small burg called Heidel. Arthritic sister Hiney can sometimes be near beer but she has a limp, pee a little or not. Brother Henry predicts the weather. Henry whines hard when rain is near — Side Note.

3. In her new memoir, “Miss Lacy” the Tijuana Chihuahua recalls being fed booze before her naughty nightly performances. “I drank to forget,” says the former starlet in her tell-all book — Brent Andrews.
