Doing our part…

Our family is a big dog friendly family.  We have had at least one dog almost the entire time that we have been married.  Which is why when I have no photos to post I always throw in one of these

Brandy or

Abby or

Roxy, my son and daughter in laws puppy.

So, today when my husband and I were out being tourists at a local winery…

Chateau Morrisette

We were happy to find “Bear” the winery dog.

While we were partaking in a ‘little’ wine tasting we were given the history of the winery.  Seems at one point the owners son had a label made for the wine that honored his recently departed dog.  Sales jumped 100%.  So, they tried again with another wine and another dog label and sales jumped 600% percent.  Can you guess what every label looks like now?  As we speak, I am making dog labels for all the fat quarters in the shop…

We also learned that the winery has a collection of wines that benefit a couple of local and state dog foundations.  They are called ‘service dog wines’.

8% of the sales benefit the dog foundations.  They are even available in a “kennel” pack.  As you can imagine, we had to ‘do our part’ to help these worthy causes…

Of course, you could always go with the local stand by…

Cheers, Sandra
