Blazin' through the vines

We attended the first annual Grapehounds Virginia ..I know..Shocker! It was a GREAT event! it started at Tarara winery and there were tons of great vendors.Kristen and I had to volunteer for a little bit so the boys relaxed in the shade.Then it was time for wine tasting!! Tarara set up a really nice outdoor tasting area. We had some lunch and wine here and headed out to hit the wine trail! Next, North Gate winery which is owned by greyhound adopters!
This is when everyone stopped to smell the roses.Then we are off to Three Fox Vineyard. This is an absolutely gorgeous vineyard and the wine was awesome as well. We pause to enjoy the wonderful view.
And our last stop of the day was Barrel Oak winery. This is a very dog friendly winery that is set in a gorgeous location.Of course, we draw a crowd but the dogs are done. We can only coax Stanley and Cali in to the tasting room by this time. But the winery is so dog friendly, they have 'leash holders' at the bar!
Kristen takes the opportunity to educate the young.And Stanley gains a friendThis was a great event. We are now very excited about Grapehounds New York in July!
I have a foster for a bit. His name is Jawa Blaze and we call him Blaze (mostly Blazin' Raizen). he is a big, goofy, happy boy. and he has the BEST ears! He reminds me a lot of Booyah on "Ridlon Tails"And we are watching Amy for the week. She loves to run in the yard.
I was trying to get a good shot of Blaze and caught this..Oh..and R.I.P. Windows 7 Disk..and no, I had not installed it yet.

I am so envious of all of you who got to go on the wine tour, and I dont even drink! It looks like it was so much fun, though.

I love the ears on that boy! Have fun with him!

That looks like lots of fun! Too bad about the disk, maybe they'll replace it?

Lucky you! A friend of mine went to that event and she said it was wonderful. I would love to make it next year!

Funny how things get chewed up when there are lots of dogs around. Maybe they think they can point the finger at everyone else. Hope your kids are resting up for Grapehounds NY.
