Every once in a while I'd try to tempt Shadow into drinking beer. He'd try a few slurps from a bowl, but he was not very enthusiastic. I think the carbonation bothered him.
However, if I was at my friends house (who had a dog who loved beer), it was a different story. If I poured a little beer on his deck, it was always a race between Shadow and the other dog about who would get the beer first. Under those competetive conditions, Shadow would always drink as much as I'd pour.
