Dry Creek Valley wine dog day

by winecountrydog

The fourth day of April was a super-nice spring day fur walkies in Dry Creek Valley!

This is the view from the deck at Mutt Lynch and Wilson wineries.

We were happy to meet Sophie, a very sweet mini Schnauzer. Sophie had a tremendous view of the valley from Rachel's lap.

Many of us dogs were out fur the Barkus Wine & Treats event at Mutt Lynch Winery. It's a fundraiser fur Healdsburg Animal Shelter.

We wanted to walk around and greet everybuddy and eat treats. Dog-ma made a donation and we made a beeline fur some treats that had dropped on the winery floor.

I was, as usual, more outgoing than my buddy, Jack Corgi. Actually, Jack was feelin' uncharacteristically cranky. He asked if we could take him home and let him sleep it off.

I think that poor dog-ma barely got to taste the Merlot Over and Play Dead and the Chateau d'Og Cabernet Sauvignon.

I noticed that Patch the winery dog was interested in a big hunka green stuff. It reminded me of florist's clay — you know, the clay you put at the bottom of a vase to hold the flower stems. Is it pawsible that Patch does ikebana?
