Drunken Dog Devours Yeast Dough

A vet in Austria had to treat a three year old Labrador because it was barely able to walk on his four paws. It was also smelling of beer.

Tests done showed that the dog had 1.6g of alcohol per liter of blood!

Apparently, the hungry dog gad sneaked into the kitchen in the morning and wolfed down half a kilogram of dough with fresh yeast. The dough had fermented in his stomach and gave out alcohol, so the dog was stone drunk.
