The coffee has an extra shot of espresso in it.

just because a dog like something does not mean they should have it. if that was the case, we'd be able to buy cat poo at the pet store.

Not good.

Coffee can be very dangerous because of the caffeine. Noticeable effects of toxicity would be hyperactivity, restlessness, muscle twitches, increased urination and excessive panting. They can even have seizures if they've ingested too much. Keep a close eye on them, and go to the vet if you notice anything that isn't normal.

My Dogs love coffee too! I recently read it can be toxic for them. No more doggie coffee in our house!
