Animal Cruelty in the Beer Community is No Laughing Matter

Does the picture above constitute animal cruelty? I’m not talking about making your dog wear a beer box, I’m talking about making your dog walk around in a Heineken box! Look how sad and ashamed he looks, and rightfully so! It may have seemed amusing to this dogs owner after they had consumed 9 Heinekens, but I can assure you that demeaning a pug in this fashion does not go unnoticed!

If you want to dress your dog up in a Boulevard Sampler box or a Founders case box, by all means go ahead. That should give the dog pride that his owner wants him to adorably represent fine quality craft beer. However, dressing your dog in a Heineken box will just make him think he’s a pathetic clown, meant to dance on command for your amusement. What’s next, are they going to tie a green bottle to his head and make him into a “Uniheinekorn” while snickering at their own resourceful wit? He’ll believe his owners think little of him and his self-worth will end up in the toilet. So I ask again, animal cruelty? You be the judge…
