Merle empties the beer keg

I was going to blog-break through Christmas but couldn’t resist posting this story.

This is Merle, two Christmas seasons ago, as a Rottweiler-Lab mix Christmas puppy present to the grandkids.

And this is a Kegorator picture that I pulled off of the Internet via Best Buy. My son was the recipient of one about a year or so ago, free, via a friend of a friend.   ( Not this particular model but something similar )

While Merle is now a rambunctious two year old, when my son posted on Facebook over the weekend that Merle had emptied a half keg of beer that he’d purchased in anticipation of the upcoming holidays, while he and my DIL were at a Christmas party…..I couldn’t understand how Merle could have tipped over and emptied a keg??

It wasn’t until the next day that my DIL explained. Evidently the cat was on top of the Kegorator and Merle jumped up to play or something….pushed that lever, and the beer began to flow.

I don’t know if any of you have read the book about the dog “Marly” but this reminded me of it, and I think that Merle one-upped Marly in this incident! :)

Merry Christmas from Merle who luckily is not your dog  :)

Seriously, while they had a big mess to deal with, they didn’t even punish him…it was an accident.

Here’s hoping that your Christmas and New Years goes smoothly with no accidents :)

    I’m surprised he wasn’t super sick! Humans can die from alcohol poisoning. YIKES! Guess he was lucky.

    Hello, of course it was an accident. I wonder if Merle enjoyed drinking some of that beer. Cute story.
    Thanks always for your visits and comments this past year. Have a happy day and weekend ahead. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  6. Oh no! When I saw “emptied” in your blog title I thought you meant he drank it! Well, that will be a good family story for years to come!

    I’d have loved to see the look on his face when that beer started to flow….”uh oh! I am SO outta here!”

      That was the look on his face, Joyce, when Scott and Tallica got home! It was around 2:30 in the morning and he just wanted to run outside / he knew he’d done wrong but he’d not meant to. They never punished him or anything / they knew it was an accident

    Someone should write a book about Merle!!

  15. Lol! Pets always seem to give us something to blog about. Guess he didn’t want you to take a break ;).

    Merry Christmas Deb!!

  16. They can get into the anything…they are so curious creatures. He must have been having tons of fun to release 1/2 keg. One of the funniest stories I have ever heard. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    Okay, I admit to laughing about this. I don’t think Merle would have understood what he was being punished over, anyway. =)
