Trouble brewing

Loyal Pug Lifer Chackler has alerted me to this shocking photo being displayed on Cute Overload. What were the humans thinking giving this pug puppy a beer? Alcohol is strictly forbidden under Islam. And as Chackler pointed out, that is doubly so for an inferior brew such as Beck's. It is written in the Quran: "The devil wants only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong drink and games of chance and to turn you from remembering Allah and from prayer. Will you then desist." So if these humans want to raise their canine as a good Muslim pug, they must immediately stop serving this devilish brew.

In addition to endangering their puppy's soul, these humans are contributing to the immense problem of underage canine drinking. It is a serious issue in this country, and such glamorization of this lifestyle only serves to make matters worse. Sure, the pug may look cute now. But just wait until he grows up to be a raging alcoholic.

What a shame. These people must be of the same variety that I saw selling pug puppies in front of the Walmart in the scorching heat the other day.

Perhaps Happy Tail Ale is a suitable alternative? It's non-alcoholic and non-carbonated but still packs that thirst quenching malted barley goodness!

My mother (chackler) showed this to me today. I am shocked and amazed that this is going on. Not so much the underaged drinking, though that is a horrible offense, but the drinking of Becks! Well, that just sends it over the edge.

Thank you Mugsy for shedding light on this growing epidemic.

Brody - Happy Tail Ale? I must have my mom order some.

A Beck beer?

I know my parents are partial to a brand of beer they call "A & W Root".

They won't let me have any.

Is that brand forbidden? It doen't look like it's bad for you. Sometimes they put ice cream in it and call it a float.

That is shameful, JMG. Taking pug puppies to Wal-Mart ...

Yes, Brody, Happy Tail Ale sounds like a good alternative for observant Muslim canines. And I love that it is beef-flavored.

No, Boomer. Thank you and Chackler for bringing this atrocity to my attention.

Root beer is permissible as well, Ender, although I am partial to a Coke or Pepsi float. Welcome to the ministry!

Abigail has been known to indulge in alcoholic beverages from time to time.
Emily abstains and she is the designated driver.
Abigail sticks her nose up Emily's arse and follows her home on such occasions.

At least they are being responsible, Uncivil.

I once saw someone with a pug at a vending machine outside of Walmart. Of course, they were buying Dr. Pepper so maybe they weren't so bad.
