Is it ok for Chi's to drink milk??

As my fiance was sitting on the couch the other night with a glass of milk and he looked down only to find simba with his whole head in the glass drinking the mill, and everytime i pour out some milk he get's all excited and starts begging for some.

Giving a small amount every now and then would probably be OK. I found this article online:

Dairy products are not highly dangerous but can pose problems for two reasons. One is their high fat content and like other foods with high fat content, there is a risk of pancreatitis. The second reason is that pets poorly digest dairy products since they lack the enzyme required to digest lactose. This affects some pets more than others causing gas to diarrhea. Small amounts of plain yogurt or cheese are tolerated by most dogs but it is probably safest to avoid dairy products altogether.
