Cooper Vineyards Wine Festival

Every year we attend this festival at Cooper Vineyards that supports the Richmond SPCA.  We've been going for easily 8 years and each year we get bigger. It is a great day to hang out with friends and our dogs and drink wine.
We always pack a picnic of fancy cheese, meats and crackers.  This year we had 18 dogs and 12 people in our group.  Three tents and a lot of blankets were used.
 This was Roxi's first event like this and she did so well.
 Dana is old hat at this event and gets her own 'queen bed' since she is the old lady
And a rare sighting of Gyeong!  Parker gets a royal seat of his own.
My parents even make the 2 hour trek to enjoy some time with their granddogs.  Truffles doesn't ever leave my mom's lap during these type of things.
Roxi found a friend to give her some love
And our friend's dog, Findlay, catches some rays.  Findlay came from the same adoption group that Roxi did..we wondered if they knew a 'gang sign' of some sort...
But after a while, Roxi wore out and began to snuggle with Cali..
Which eventually lead to this..
 Even when Cali switched positions, Roxi found a way to touch...

Between the tents, the blankets, the hounds and others, the people, the food and the photos, I felt that I should have been there to see the magic!

Cooper is always a fun time. Roxi was such a good girl on her first outing with us. Haha, you make me sound like Big Foot.

It sounds like Roxi is fitting right in :)

Looks like a fab time.

All the dogs obviously enjoyed it.

So cute that Roxie is cuddling up to Cali.

I am green with envy every year when you post your photos from this event, and I don't even drink wine. Roxi definitely seems very attached to Cali.

You got a photo of Gyeong! I thought a photo of a unicorn was more common! ;)

I love the second photo where it seems every human in it has at least 1 dog looking at them intently! Roxi looks awesome and I'm sure Shiloh is looking down and smiling :) I have noticed Gyeong hiding in the background in other photos, it's great to see him in a photo to himself, well sharing the limelight with Parker!
