Man's BFF indeed!
Winnipeg resident Paul Carr has his made his yellow Labrador retriever "earn his keep" by teaching him how to fetch beer!
“He’s called an American heel Lab, but I call him the great Canadian beer Lab,” Carr told the Winnipeg Sun on Tuesday, as his dog Murphy sat ready to fetch cans of ale from inside a small fridge in a Transcona back yard. “Could you have anything better than your dog to get beer for you?”
A dog that also fetches Long Island Ice Teas perhaps? But we agree, Murphy is a super fab fella!
When Murphy was a puppy Carr realized that the lab has a knack for learning tricks, the beer stunt is the latest.
“I got tired of running back and forth. So I thought, ‘Let’s get Murphy to earn his keep.’ And within two minutes, he had it figured out. Now, he’s fetching beers for everybody. He loves it. He’s excited about it. And, well, he gets a carrot afterward too. That helps.”
