Remembering Pomeroy

July 20, 2017
Alexandria, VA

One year ago today at the age of 18, Pomeroy, one of the original Virginia Wine Dogs, ran out of time and crossed over to his next life.

We didn't post anything then as it was simply too hard to find the words. Now, as we remember Pomeroy a year later, we share one of the last pictures taken of him.

The vet estimated he was 7 years old when we rescued him from a puppy mill and he had his forever home for 11 more years. We still miss his smiling face every day.

A few favorites:
Halloween at Kewsick (a prize winner as the Cowardly Lion)

Overseeing the Cardinal Point Oyster Festival
International fame
At Lost Creek... always wanting to join the band

Playing peek-a-boo among the barrels
Windblown atop the Three Fox hill
A satisfied customer at Rappahannock
Checking out the bouquet of the wine he made at Three Fox
Planting his first vine at Gadino
Making the cover of NoVaDog Magazine
And his own Hallmark Card
