I like the pictures of Catherine with the Irish wolfhound mascot. She is on very friendly terms with the dog.

Its gotten to the point where its not officially St. Patrick's Day until the Cambridges visit the Irish Guard. That Irish wolfhound named Domhnal really is a beautiful animal. Wonder if he drinks Guinness?

BTW: just saw recently that one can buy a beer for dogs. Non-alcoholic of course.

I wonder if this will be the last year we see Domnhall. There was a call last year for him to be retired. He has hip problems and prostate issues before. It was quite the campaign last year by some for his retirement. The seven year old has been the mascot since 2013. He is the 16th Irish wolf hound to have the position.

Actually beer is said by some to be good for dogs. Guiness I have heard reported to be good for heart warm in dogs.

I agree, never been a fan. I would take a mug of Kilkenny any day of week.

Not much of a drinker, usually only when I travel. But always loved a good Irish pub.

According to my mother, Guinness is an acquired taste. The two of us went to an Irish bar and I ordered two pints of Guinness and upon taking her first sip, she exclaimed (quite loudly) "Oh my God... this stuff'll give you diarrhea!" The bar laughed at that one.

In the US, ordering a "black and tan" is mix of Guinness and Bass Ale. Just recently discovered they're also called an "Irish car bomb". I've been off the streets and out of the bars too long.

Until fairly recently in Ireland (maybe 20 years ago??), Guinness was prescribed to patients in hospital who were recovering from surgery! 1 bottle at night, due to the presumed high levels of iron
