Golden Retriever complains about not being allowed to drink alcohol delights viewers

An adorable Golden Retriever apparently reacted badly when told he couldn’t have wine with dinner.

In one video, which has garnered over 200,000 views, Goose the Golden Retriever can be seen licking a glass of white wine, while his owner can be heard saying “please stop licking my wine glass! “

When told to stop, Goose looks sadly at his owner and begins to whine dramatically. The caption reads: “You’d think I told him he couldn’t have dinner the way he was moaning.” One user commented, “He just wants to chill with wine!”

Clearly that glass of wine is reserved for the Goose owner, but why exactly should dogs not drink alcohol?

According to the American Kennel Club: “The amount of ethanol required to cause intoxication varies with its concentration in the ingested substance. The published oral lethal dose in dogs is 5.5 to 7.9 g/kg d 100% ethanol. One milliliter of ethanol is equal to 0.789g.”

If you suspect your dog has consumed alcohol, you should watch out for the following signs:

Hillspet.com agreed and reported that alcohol is toxic to dogs: “Not only in drinks but also in syrups and raw bread dough.” They suggest that if you suspect your dog has consumed a large amount of alcohol, or are unsure, “alert your vet and get recommendations on how to proceed.”

As the holiday season approaches, many of us will have family and friends to drink and eat, and Hillspet.com suggests:

  • Talking to your guests – “If you are hosting a social gathering around your dog, make sure they all understand that it is not okay to give your dog water at any time. In cases where you or guests may be heavily intoxicated and may forget this advice, it may be best to lock your dog in a secure area away from guests to prevent accidental alcohol consumption.”
  • Don’t leave drinks unattended – “If you wander away from your glass for any reason, make sure it’s out of reach to prevent it from spinning around before you return. Be sure to throw away or put leftover alcohol in the fridge before going to bed at night.”
  • Spills – “In the event of a spill, be sure to get your dog away from the accident as quickly as possible and worry about cleanup afterward. While a wine-stained rug can be replaced, your dog can’t. .”

TikTok users were delighted with the puppy’s reaction to being reprimanded.

User Cami Binetti said: “ngl this is exactly how I would react if someone told me I can’t have wine.”

User cedricva476 commented: “The Goldens are always dramatic for no reason hahaha mine is the same.”
