It's a Mystery to the Wine Dogs


Munchkin and Pomeroy meet Virginia Wine Country mystery writer Ellen Crosby at Philip Carter Winery. The Wine Dogs enjoyed the Merlot Murders and Chardonney Charade, and can't wait to lap up the Bordeaux Betrayal and Reisling Retribution. The books are rich in details about winemaking in general, and the Blue Ridge wine country in particular.

Memorial Day 2009


Lots of big happenings out in Virginia Wine Country for Memorial Day Weekend, and the Wine Dogs will be making the circuit.

We'll be reporting for duty at wineries along the Generals' Wine and History Trail (see right).

Two of our favs -- Barrel Oak and Philip Carter -- are celebrating their one-year anniversaries, and a very successful year it has been.

And out at Cooper Vineyards, it's Lucy's weekend. James River Cellars will join in this annual benefit for the Richmond SPCA, honoring Cooper's found hound and mascot, Lucy. Leashed four-legged friends and picnics are welcome. There will be fun, food, music, wine and adoptable pets. Check out the blessing of the animals on Sunday at 1 PM.

See you on the trail. And eight paws up to all those who have served and sacrificed on behalf of this great nation!

Chow Now at BOW... Wow!

Barrel Oak Winery

Delaplane, VA

During their most recent visit to Barrel Oak Winery, the Virginia Wine Dogs ran into the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel meet-up group. In addition to BOW's always wonderful wine, Munchkin and Pomeroy were treated to tasty tidbits from the folks at Chow Now in Marshall, Virginia. These true pet lovers have whipped up a yummy "farm to bowl" raw food diet. Munchkin took home a tub, which her Mom gently sautees to warm up before serving. She loves it, and is finding she is much less ravenous between meals. Pomeroy, a very picky eater, has become a member of the clean bowl club since his Dad began using Chow Now to spike his kibble.


-------------------------------------------------

Well Munchkin! What a great blog that you and Pomeroy have put together - you pooches are quite busy! Thank you for the four paw review - we're thrilled that you two love it. We'll see you again soon, we hope. Come see us Memorial Day, 5/25 at BOW! We'll have your pool all ready for you . Thanks again! Say hi to your mom!
Best,
Carole (Chow Now)
