Editor’s Note: Under no circumstances should your dog ever consume alcohol. If you suspect that your pet has ingested alcohol, contact your vet or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center immediately.
Summer is here which means it’s time to hit the beach, the rooftop, the park. Wherever you end up, chances are you’ll soon be surrounded by family and loved ones… and, most likely, lots of alcohol.
‘Round my house, summertime just wouldn’t be summertime without the total annihilation of a fully stocked bar. There’s just something about a good stiff drink while soaking in some sunshine. Besides, no summer vacay is complete without your drunk uncle telling everyone all about the riveting process of getting his bunions shaved down, so you might want to get that buzz going before Act II.
