Daniel Keeton works at a central Oregon brewery and didn’t want his dog Lola Jane to miss out on all the fun, so he created Dawg Grog, a non-alcoholic “beer” especially for dogs, made from malted barley water, liquid glucosamine, and organic vegetable broth. Lola Jane turned out to be a bit of a Grog-aholic, licking the bowl clean at every opportunity. When Keeton decided to bottle up his beverage and sell it to other thirsty canines, a thriving business was born.
Now that dogs can safely and easily drink “beer” with their owners, I got to thinking about all the other ways people can give their pets a more authentic human lifestyle. From dog weddings to luxury pet massages to paw manicures, read on to get the scoop on all the weird ways to treat your dog like a human…
It’s not Edie Beale, it’s Anne Hathaway collecting dog scat. A very eccentric disguise, but we’re always pleased to see a celebrity who’s not too good to scoop up dog poop, however unbecoming it may be to their image.

A Pomsky is an irresistible blend of a tiny Pomeranian and a big, beautiful Husky pup. I don’t want to think of the mating implications of that, because it sounds rather painful, but I love the mini-Husky result. This guy is perfectly pocket sized!
Whether you like Fiona Apple’s music or not, it’s tough not to be moved by this sweet and sad letter, explaining to fans that she won’t be going on tour so that she can stay home and take care of her dying dog.

You might think you have the greatest pet in the world, but that’s probably because you don’t watch much TV. Instead of a cat that secretly hates you, fictional pets can be dragons or loyal household animals who stick by your side as you step out into the great unknown, rather than eating the contents of your bathroom trashcan the second you’re out the door. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 coolest pets in fiction. Just don’t tell your real pet — they might get jealous that they’re not as awesome as these animal pals, and, if you own a cat, try to kill you in your sleep.
1. Grey Wind, “Game Of Thrones.” Robb of House Stark, the newly crowned King of the North, is feared not only for his prowess in battle and military strategy, but because of his awesome pet: a viciously loyal direwolf.

A week out from Hurricane Sandy, the East Coast has been hit by a new storm — a snowy, slushy Nor’easter. Dear Mayan Prophecy, we get it! We get it! It’s with that in mind that I think all of us over in these here parts (and heck, just about everyone) would benefit frm adding a little yoga into their routines. No, not people yoga — personally, I find people yoga to be insanely boring — but pups doing the famous stretch for which a yoga move was named. So commencing henceforth: an assortment of dogs doing downward dog stretches!
On the season finale of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” Alana was briefly reunited with her former pet pig Glitzy, which was sadsies because we knew the petite pig wasn’t going home with her. Looks like Alana has moved on. She has a new bestie — a pet chicken named Nugget. Clever!
According to Honey Boo Boo’s official Facebook page, “her and nugget have [become] very attached this weekend … and it [is in] the house but has a outside house too but Alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage.” I hope this best friend lasts. But I’m doubtful that Nugget will like wearing dresses as much as Glitzy. [People]
