Bowser Beers and Treats: Meaty Drinks and Tasty Snacks from Jenny Brown of 3 Busy Dogs Inc

by DerdriuMarriner

Names convey everything, nothing, or something. For example, Bowser beers and treats have dogs as their customer base. But they offer “human grade,” non-alcoholic ingredients.

Camaraderie can be evident in larger and smaller group activities. People who get along find fun ways to get together and keep bonding. Enjoying food and playing sports give ample opportunities for socialization and solidarity.

Guest and participant lists generally include beloved family animals.
• The agenda typically inspires animal- and people-friendly fun times with foot races and Frisbee throws.
• The food traditionally involves some edibles exclusively for animals and others specifically for people.

Overlap usually is less likely with drinks than with foods.
• The reason lies in the historical association of beer with outing- and reunion-friendly meats and treats.
• But Bowser beer and treats make it possible for beloved canines to be drinking buddies and designated walkers.

Beer and snails: fatal attraction

"The Morning After The Night Before": successful beer traps for snails

Some people appear to hold their alcohol more effectively than others. Some animals cooperate with alcoholic consumption more enthusiastically than others. For instance, such land-based molluscs in the Gastropoda class as terrestrial slugs and snails die for swallows from beer-filled bowls. Fruit flies (Drosophilidae family) likewise drown in red wine-filled glasses. Considering the damage which both of the above-mentioned examples provoke, some people enjoy observing such fatal attractions. They feel otherwise in regard to beloved family animals. Alcohol consumption occasionally leads to drinking buddies off the stool and onto the floor. It ultimately leaves canine companions dead. Grapes and hops respectively make wines and beers. They number among the comestibles which veterinarians identify as toxic to dogs.

Toxicity can follow over-consumption of something either ordinarily beneficial or outright harmful. For example, healthy dogs effectuate sufficient synthesis by activating:

  • Beta-carotene into hair-, muscle-, skin-, and vision-friendly vitamin A;
  • Essential linoleic fatty acid into the hormonal precursor and polyunsaturated fatty acid, arachidonic acid;
  • Intestinal bacteria into clot-regulating vitamin K;
  • Sulfur-containing amino acids into heart-, nerve-, reproduction-, and vision-strengthening taurine.

They generate insufficient amounts of:

  • The ammonia-removing, cell-dividing, immune-functioning, wound-healing amino acid arginine;
  • The cardiovascular regulator niacin;
  • The calcium- and potassium-retaining Vitamin D.

Nutritional supplements offer little threat to water-soluble vitamins B-complex and C, which eliminate naturally and store minimally. They sometimes threaten water-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, which lipocytes eliminate minimally and store maximally.

 

Not for canines: Grapes, raisins, and wine cause renal failure while hops in beer induce alcohol poisoning.

Any toxic consumption endangers canine health and doggie lifespans.  The list of canine-toxic foods nevertheless entails some surprises. For example, human consumers find frequent enjoyment and entertainment in meals which showcase:

  • Garlic;
  • Grapes;
  • Hops;
  • Onions;
  • Raisins.

But consumption of garlic and onions harms canine red blood cells and makes dogs anemic. Digesting grapes and raisins and drinking their respective juices inspire canine kidney dysfunction and failure. Ingestion of hops links with:

  • Hyperventilation (accelerated breathing rates);
  • Malignant hyperthermia (rising temperatures exceeding 105°F [40.56°C]);
  • Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat rates);
  • Unnecessary clotting of blood;
  • Vomiting.

Italian drinks and foods therefore may be out. But the above-mentioned proscriptions need not deter the controlled option of canines and their human companions sharing rounds.

B&H Lifes, Bowser Beer, and Dawg Grog are businesses which offer non-alcoholic versions of beer for dogs.

  • B&H Lifes emerges as a pet product supplier headquartered in Aichi Prefecture. As the owner of two dogs, the Aichi Prefecture-based Japanese company’s chief executive officer, Masahito Tsurumi, finds solid customer bases for Wan Wan (“Woof Woof”) non-alcoholic beers and sparkling wines.
  • The invention of non-alcoholic suds in Bend, Oregon for his canine companion, Lola Jane, and all her peers guarantees a market niche for Daniel Keeton, Boneyard Beer Tap Man and Dawg Grog owner-operator.
  • The same likewise holds true for Jenny Brown, 3 Busy Dogs owner-operator and Bowser beer and treats inventor for designated walkers and their human companions.

Bowser beers and treats claim past locations in Washington, D.C. and present venues in Seattle, Washington. Their inventor, Jenny Brown, commemorates 2007 as the launch-year of canine-intended, holiday-celebrating pretzel treats. Immediate approbation of the tasty treats by dogs and their human companions explains Jenny’s:

  • Canine entries at Pet Expo;
  • Prototyping the world's first-ever hops-free, human-grade, non-alcoholic, non-carbonated, yeast-free beef- and malt barley-flavored Bowser Beer;
  • Terrier taste-testing hops-free, human-grade, non-alcoholic, non-carbonated, yeast-free chicken- and malt barley-flavored Cock-A-Doodle Brew.

The beef- and chicken-flavored versions, Bowser Beer and Cock-A-Doodle Brew, have as mutual ingredients:

  • B-vitamin supplements;
  • Fat- and salt-free homemade, real-meat stock;
  • Joint-friendly amino sugars known as glucosamine;
  • Sweet malt barley.

They may be shared with feline and human companions.

 

Kittycat and puppy rapport: Cats, dogs, and humans may all bond over and share in Bowser Beer and canine treats.

Jenny chases canine beers with doggie treats and vice versa. She has on her menu of canine appetizers, deserts, and snacks:

  • Cigar sausages;
  • Liver treats;
  • Peanut butter bits;
  • Pretzel nuggets;
  • Puppy Cake puptato chips;
  • Sedona Natural liver treats.  

Eight-inch (20.32-centimeter) cigar sausages have as all-natural ingredients:

  • Deli-style beef or turkey;
  • Wholesome grains (rice flour).

Arizona-based Sedona Natural’s liver treats include U.S.D.A.-grade all-beef, dehydrated livers. Peanut butter bits and pretzel nuggets mix:

  • Naturally sweet molasses;
  • Peanut butter;
  • Unbleached wheat flour;
  • Vitamin E supplements;
  • Water.

Puptato chips result from drying -- not frying – all-natural, almost fat-free sweet potatoes which are cultivated and harvested in North Carolina. They all serve appetizingly well with Jenny’s beers served cubed, on-the-rocks, or straight-up.

 

 

No more sad looks from feeling left out: Jenny Brown created Bowser Beer so that her puppy coterie, including golden retriever Chewy, and all canines have healthy alternatives to alcoholic beer.

Conclusion

 

Family animals endear themselves to fellow domesticates and human companions because of:

  • Affable companionship;
  • Astute differentiation between friendly and hostile scents, sights, and sounds;
  • Intelligent instincts;
  • Loyal dependability.  

They like to showcase the above-mentioned qualities at routine and special get-togethers. Dogs in particular love to be in the thick of drinking, eating, and playing fun. They make ideal drinking partners, what with their commitments to remaining the soberest of designated walkers. They indeed manage to keep the good times rolling happily and safely since Bowser Beer and Cock-A-Doodle Brew never stop tasting non-alcoholically, non-toxically great whether served:

  • Chilled for up to a week in a refrigerator;
  • Crushed or cubed for up to 6 months in a freezer.
