The Stanley Pup got to drink from The Stanley Cup.

Barclay, the St. Louis Blues team dog, lapped up a victorious beverage as the Cup was being held by former Blues defenseman Bob Plager.

While it may have took him a moment to warm up to the Cup, Barclay, who is being trained as a service dog during his time with the 2019 Stanley Cup champions, he certainly got used to it.

Looks like Barclay could get used to doing that every year.

On Wednesday, the Cup visited Busch Stadium, where it visited the St. Louis Cardinals.

While the game was delayed by rain, the visiting Oakland A's also got a chance to hang out with the Cup.
