    Last night was an adventure. I have a 10 month old Newfoundland.
    Being summer, and having a thick fur coat, she recently discovered how
    much cooler the basement is. She also discovered an old bottle of vodka.
    Still only 10 months old, she still chews on everything; including bottles.
    So she ended up chewing off the bottle cap and lapping some of it up (only about one cup). I found her stumbling around the basement, she even slurred her barks.
    I gave her lots of water, and some bread.
    She finally went to sleep at 4:00 in the morning.
    Now all alcohol is up high and out of reach.
    Maybe I should put her in AA...
    Next thing I'll catch her behind the shed smoking weed.

    Edit: Oh, yeah. This would be a good time to share your drunken pet stories.

    hahaha

    that's great. I had a party once and apparently my friends gave my dog about a beer & 1/2 and he was having trouble walking. I didn't see it myself (otherwise I would have stopped it obviosly) but still, the idea of drunk pets is funny.

    come to think of my friend had a cat that was partial to marijuana smoke...

    I laughed, then snorted. That's hilarious.

    Reminds me of our neighbor's Lhasa Apso; it was around for my whole childhood, right up until I moved from home. If anyone was standing around drinking beer (which seemed to happen frequently around our place), the dog would give one "warning" bark. If you did not comply by dumping some beer on the ground for her, she would proceed to bite your ankle. Hard. I swear that dog was perpetually hung over.

    On a more serious note, 1 cup of vodka is a lot, even for a newfie. :eek: Hopefully she's OK!

    Those are really cool dogs.

    I have been told that the family dog has "smoked pot" on some occasions. I hope he was never given anything harder. The dog is very, very laid back by the way.:cool:

    LOL...I imagine a cup's worth of vodka could get a 10 month old dog right off its tracks.

    It's pretty cool that you've got a Newfoundland, too. I've been REALLY wanting to get one lately (spent like 3 hours reading about them today because of it ). They are my favorite kind of dog.

    Once my cat ate my neighbours ecstacy pills,
    I realized something was wrong when the cat sat in front of a wall while staring at it intently for three hours.

    I did get my dog drunk once on purpose so he would stop drinking out of peoples tea cups. he did stop.

    On the inverse one of my other neigbours mixed up his pot with his cats catnip buds and smoked the catnip instead , gave him a horrible headache. he got rid of the cat.

    Smoking cat nip? Sounds like he was already high before he tried to smoke :rolleyes:

    Snorted, huh. Sounds like you need some help too. ;)
    She seems to be ok now, currently outside chasing fireflies.

    They are great dogs. Super friendly and and not overly hyper.
    They are big (mines 10 months old and already weighs 110lbs) and can knock things over be accident.
    And they drooooool! So get used to scraping dried drool of the celling. :p

    Interesting neighbors you have...:p

    I can totally see my cat staring intently at the wall for 3 hours whether or not he was under the influence. :D

    Mine has found a new spot on an armchair near the door to my apartment. I think she is planning an escape. :) :eek: Either that, or she now thinks she is an attack cat. :D

    Okay... I have some idiot friends who put catnip in a fire and inhaled the smoke.
    Their first glamorous experience with "drugs." They think they're so cool. :rolleyes:

    Things I'm surprised didn't happen in this story

    1. no stomach pump
    2. your dog didn't attempt to push an officer
    3. nobody drew things / shamed your dog ...

    maybe I've been in college for too long

    I hope your pup is ok!
    I had a buddy who had a dog-the sweetest dog ever-and this dog was an alcoholic, I kid you not. If the dog spotted anyone with a beer he would grab his dish and plop it in your lap and he would not leave you alone until you poured him some. Everyone got a great kick out of it, but it is just not cool to feed a dog the amounts of beer that was fed that night. I tried sneaking him some water but he wouldn't touch it. Someone decided it would be much fun to feed him shots of jager. Drunk as hell myself I had to nurse him for most of the night, he started puking and what-not. He was just laying there, his breathing was horribly shallow, and I seriously thought we were going to have to bring him to the vet. I fed him bread and water and kept a close eye on him until the morning. Believe it or not, that dog lived to be 15 years old!

    My mate's got a beautiful boxer. The NYE before last they were both round and she had some beer and got arsey and nervous, obviously she's not a drinker. Another time my mate and some other guys hotboxed their living room, she came in looked at them, woofed and passed out on the floor. :p She loves the smell of weed too, it probably reminds her of him!!

    That did occur to me. Just that night I was watching this show about bad drivers. And one of them was a dog who stole his owners car.
    So it was possible...

    You'd be surprised how effortless it is to hotbox a dog and get him stoned.
