After a little bit of absinthe, she changes from Humble House Pet to Canela the WonderDog.

I had Trazedone presribed several years ago to help me sleep. It worked well, but mot well enough to sleep through a poodle chewing my lip off. This woman had more than sugar in her iced tea.

Mattb, my wiener dog likes to join me in a cocktail occassionally too, but I, like you, discourage him licking it from my lips.

So after the reconstructive surgery, I guess she'll be know as Ol' Butt Face.

Lovely story.
My dog likes a little nip of absinthe when I have some, but I generally don't encourage her to lick my mouth. I usually just dip my finger in my drink and let her lick that. I have not lost a single finger to date.
I think she's more a beer fancier, but she likes liquor to some extent. She got a taste for beer when I was in college and she'd hang around the keg and lick the foam and dribbles from it. She doesn't care for wine at all.

They should send the dog to Marc for some how-to training...

I found this article in the Macon Telegraph (Georgia). I suppose the same thing could happen with Sweetened Absinthe. The article is so damn funny.

Dog chews off woman's lower lip
By Sharon E. Crawford

The Macon Telegraph WARNER ROBINS ---

Police have determined a family pet ate off a woman's bottom lip while
she was sleeping last week. Warner Robins police detective Karen Stokes said
Thursday there was no evidence of a crime committed against a 47-year-old
woman who said she woke up last Friday to find her bottom lip gone. Police
determined the woman's poodle chewed off her lip while she was in a
drug-induced sleep.
Although the woman's family members believe an unknown chemical caused
the injury, the woman admitted to police that she frequently allowed her
1-year-old poodle, "Shorty," to lick her lips after she drank sweet tea. She
also told them her dog had taken her false teeth out of her mouth several
weeks earlier and chewed them up while she slept." The (doctors) found no
trace of chemicals on the tissues they looked at," Stokes said. "We have
determined it was the dog that caused the injuries."
A call to the woman's North Houston Road residence was not returned
Thursday. Elaine Stewart with the Houston County Health Department said
officials also haven't been able to reach the victim about her dog. According
to state law, an animal is supposed to be quarantined for 10 days following
an animal bite to check for rabies." A lot of people think we are going to
put down their dogs and they are very protective of their animals," Stewart
said Thursday. "If the people are cooperative, we actually allow home
quarantine, where the animal can remain at home."
The woman told police she took the pain medication Trazodone and drank
sweet tea shortly after 10 p.m. May 24 and woke up at 9 a.m. May 25 to find
her bottom lip was missing. While police officers searched the house for the
woman's lip, they checked the dog and found traces of blood around the
animal's mouth.
The woman was treated and released from the Houston Medical Center.
Stokes said the victim will have to have reconstructive surgery to
reconstruct her lip, using skin from her buttocks area.
