Earlier this month, a dog in Austria that smelled "like a beer hall" was brought to see a vet. The dog was barely able to stand on his own four paws.

Dingo is a three-year-old Labrador who weighs 40kg. He was a sad sight when his owner, a hunter, brought him in to the vet. Dingo was farting, had diarrhea and was throwing up. When Dingo was put up on the table, the vet said the place smelled like a beer factory.

Tests showed that Dingo had a large amount of alcohol in his body. But that was not because he had had one drink too many.

The hungry pooch had stolen and secretly eaten 0.5kg of fresh yeast dough from the kitchen. Alcohol had formed inside his stomach as a result of the fermentation process. That left poor old Dingo drunk.

"[Mean] people say that we hunters are often drunk. With me, it's my dog," joked the owner.

本月初,奧地利有隻聞起來「像間啤酒店」的狗被送去看獸醫,這隻狗幾乎無法撐起四肢站穩。

「丁哥」是一隻三歲大、重四十公斤的拉布拉多犬,當牠的獵人飼主帶牠到獸醫院時,丁哥看起來楚楚可憐,牠一面放屁、拉肚子還一面嘔吐;當丁哥被放置到手術台上時,獸醫說那裡聞起來就像是一間啤酒廠。

化驗結果顯示,丁哥體內含有大量的酒精,不過不是因為牠喝太多造成。

這隻飢腸轆轆的混種狗從廚房偷走並悄悄吃掉了一塊半公斤重的新鮮酵母麵團,結果酵母在牠的胃裡發酵產生酒精,才讓可憐的丁哥醉醺醺的。

狗主人自我調侃地說;「『刻薄』的人說我們獵人總是醉醺醺的,以我而言,醉醺醺的其實是我的狗。」
