Swedish Restaurant Adds Canine Menu

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Dogs sniffing hopefully at cafe tables are a common sight the world over -- but in Sweden, one restaurant chain is serving up a dedicated menu for canines, complete with imitation beer.

Man`s best friend can now sup on cod or organic beef at Avenyfamiljen in the western city of Gothenburg, with non-alcoholic dog beer, made from beef stock, set to be added to the menu from July.

`For a couple of years we`ve allowed dogs into our restaurants -- the next step was to offer water bowls, and now we also offer a special dog menu,` restaurant boss Tobias Hamberg told AFP."


In some benighted countries, like China and South Korea, you will find dog on the menu, but in enlightened Sweden you will find a menu for dogs in a well-known restaurant chain.

If a restaurant opened in my neck of the woods, that catered to dog lovers and their pets, I would spend hours there every evening.

I can`t think of a more relaxing way to spend an evening that dining out with my canine companion. I hope this dining trend catches on in America.
