Dogs have a unique thirst for honey and the honey drink, with the Irish people having a custom of drinking honey as part of their daily routine.
In the 1950s, the British government decided to make a decision on whether dogs should drink honey or water in order to help with the health of the dogs and reduce the risk of developing respiratory illnesses.
In 1960, the UK banned the use of honey and water in the home for dogs and they are now permitted to drink the two together.
The Irish dog drinking trend was started in the 1920s by Irish-born Irish-American author, author and musician John Barry.
In 1929, he wrote a poem called “The Holy Water” which is now the theme song of his opera “Honey and Water.”
