Picnic at the winery

It has become a tradition for us. Cooper Winery has an SPCA benefit event every year around Memorial Day. Kristen, Gyeong, Jason and I have started packing a picnic (our style) and enjoying the weather!
this year, my parents came along as well. Kristen and I love this festival b/c we get to use our wine picnic totes! This year we had many different kinds of gourmet cheeses, salamis, bread, crackers, olives, tapenades and fruit...oh and of course Cooper wine and dogs!
Here we are..my dad is on the far left and my mom is in between Kristen and I. The event was bigger this year than in the past, which is a great thing!
we had a great view of the winery.
Here is shot of my tote and the goodies it held!
The goodies brought beggers..The whole ordeal of walking to the blanket, watching people, begging for food and being awake..wore the greyhounds out! Stanley, Jaime and DanaWant to know where Stella is?
Or Cali?Eventually Cali joined the ranks on the bed and sacked out!
Shiloh gets some ear scratchesMy mom brought Truflz
Jaime snuggles with Stanley
Ever notice Dana's white eyelashes? they are so cute. They are especially noticeable against green grass
We had a lot of fun. My parents have learned if they want to see me..they have to come to a greyhound or wine event. ;-)
So..Kristen, Stanley, Cali and I are off to Mountain Hounds in 3 days. I feel sure we will have loads of stories, photos, greyhound loot and two VERY tired hounds when we return!

remember when we were curious about what was in our moms' purses? some moms had the coolest stuff. i think you win for greyhound mom with best bag.
