We attended Grapehounds Virginia last weekend. In order to get prepared, Stanley got a good brushing. He is a fuzzy greyhound. That's why we call him 'FuzziStan'.
As the newest girl in the family, Jenny didn’t want to be left out of any activities. Parker is in the background, just glad it’s not his turn for a brushing.
Our first stop was at Hartwood Winery, which was a dog-friendly winery on the way up. With over 270 wineries in Virginia, there is probably a dog-friendly winery close to you, if you live in the state.
Parker got the best seat in the car. He sat in his own little dog bed in my lap in the passenger seat. The greyhounds were relegated to dogs beds in the back. They seemed ok with that.
The opening ceremony was at North Gate Winery. They had a tasting tent outside, and the weather was beautiful, so most of us were outside.
The dark brindle in this picture had just stolen a block of cheese from someone’s cheese plate, while walking bye. Though they were able to pull it out of her mouth, she obviously was not finished with it.
The following day, the main event was held at Quattro Goomba Winery. We hung out in the back field, where they had a picnic table, and people were putting up tents and X-pens.
Right next to that was vending and registration. We already have wine lanyards, but not greyhound leather wine lanyards. (Photo courtesy of Greyhounds Rock who sold the lanyards).
By the time we made it to WillowCroft Winery, the pups were already tired, and looking for a place to lay down.
They were quite happy when we made it back to the hotel. Kelli, Thanks for putting your butt on the pillow where daddy will later put his face.
