Finley, Nike & Ella
It’s a good thing that Finley (aka JuanPabloMontoya aka Sammy) was already spoken for. His sister lives in Richmond, so he was GUR’d from Massachusetts to be reunited. What a very special sweet boy! It didn’t take him very long to feel right at home.Finley tried out a few beds and decided that the poofy bed was the most comfortable. His ears were always going up and down. This is mid going up or down. Striking a handsome pose in the yard, he shows what his ears can really do.We left Finley and the kids to go down to Blacksburg for the Hokies vs. East Carolina football game. Instead of wineries, we hit a couple of microbreweries on the way down. Blue Mountain Brewery has a great view of Afton mountain.We tried the sampler at Devil’s Backbone Brewery. Turned out our bartender was a recent VAGA adopter. Small world. Said he was ready for a second greyhound :)I opted for the Rye Ale and fried pickle spears. Yum!!!We ate at the Mexican restaurant next to our hotel that night because it had a palm tree. What can I say. We’re high class.The following weekend we met Trina and her family at New Kent Winery for the car show featuring Porsches.The girls, Trina, Trina’s mom (Sue), and Kris gabbed in the shade under the tent, while the boys ooh’d and ahh’d over the cars under the beating sun.This past weekend we watched Nike and Ella. Very sweet littermates. Ella snuggled with the gorilla, while Nike enjoyed the comfort of the bolstered bed. Poor Parker was outnumbered three brindle girls to one Black SPCA dog.Kris was at Beach Bound Hounds with Stanley and Jaime, so Stella wanted Nike to know that she was saving this bed for Jaime.But Nike and Ella were more interested in what I was doing in the garage. Whatja doin' Mr?
