Christmas dinners are not just for humans. Our pets also deserve a nice dinner during the holiday season. That’s why Dierenziekenhuis Eindhoven (Animal Hospital Eindhoven) is organising a Christmas dinner for dogs on Sunday 15 December.
Dogs will get to sit down at a decorated table and enjoy a two course meal. ‘Think of a stew with rice or pâté appetisers served on a plate,’ says veterinary assistant, Puck.
The idea was created by the hospital’s owner, Stijn. ‘I don’t know exactly how that came about, but it is brilliant. It’s so nice to see the dogs enjoy themselves,’ Puck continues.
Dining in style
Around one hundred dogs attended the last dinner. ‘Most dogs come in style, wearing a tie or a jacket,’ Puck explains.
‘In different sittings, they take their place at the table. The big dogs go for the food immediately – it’s bite, swallow, gone. The smaller dogs enjoy more as they don’t eat everything, and take the rest home in a doggy bag.’
You can register your dog’s place at the Christmas dinner via Dierenziekenhuis Eindhoven’s website.
