Dawg Grog: 'Is this really for dogs?'

Dawg Grog: 'Is this really for dogs?'
Lola Jane and Daniel Keeton

BEND, Ore. - Daniel Keeton works at Bend's Boneyard Brewery tasting room and is a beer lover.

He also loves his dog, Lola Jane.
 
So Keeton decided to make some hooch for the pooch. He calls it Dawg Grog.

"She's never walked away from it," Keeton said. "A couple of my friends who just acquired a puppy are making ice cubes out of it and it's helping their teething." 
 
There's no alcohol in the doggie brew. Ingredients include vegetable broth and spent grain from the brewery, plus supplments like glucosamine.
 
Bottles of Dawg Grog are on sale at the Visit Bend store along with local beers.

"Two things that have become synonymous of the Bend lifestyle are beer and dogs," said Doug LaPlaca with Visit Bend, "so to create something that would take advantage of the two we thought was a brilliant idea."

Six-packs are on sale next to bottles of Bend-brewed beer.

"Initially people have to look at the label twice," LaPlaca said, "and then they ask us, 'Is this really for dogs?'"
 
Keeton says Lola usually licks her bowl clean.
