This weekend, I went with Mommy and Daddy, and Aunt J, Uncle D, Cousins E & K…. and a special surprise guest… to Rusty’s Birthday Bash at the winery!! We had a Pawsome time.
It was a pretty long drive. And of course, I had to sit in the back seat.
I got a bit bored in the car. And so did Mommy. That’s why she took this fun photo of me. She had to get into a really funny position to get it. That is probably why I am smiling so pretty!
When the car finally stopped, I got excited!! I didn’t know what to expect, but Mommy said it would be fun and there would not be any horses this time!!
Guess what? Mommy was wrong!! The first thing we saw was a HORSE! There was a lady there who wrote a book about a horse and she was signing the books. She had the horse there for people to meet. I was happy to see that the horse was still in her car.
Rusty had all sorts of neat things at his birthday party. We got a map when we pulled into the parking area!
They even had an obstacle course. We got there a bit too late to enter the contest, but Mommy said we will be sure to do that next year!
Our first stop was some lunch for the people. Here is Aunt J. with her Cajun french fries. She said they were pretty good!! I didn’t get any of those. I just got some dog treats. But they were good too!!
While we were eating, the Birthday Boy came wandering through the tent! Yes, that is Rusty. Doing what dogs do best, Begging!
After lunch, we went on a tour of the winery. No place was off limits to me and my other canine friends! This is our tour guide in the colorful shirt. He is also a wine maker!
I made a new friend on the tour. This is More Love. He is a therapy dog who loves to go to the library and read with kids! We sat on the concrete floor while the tour guide talked about the wine stuff to the people.
The concrete felt sooooo good, I had to just splay out and put my head on Daddy’s foot!
Here’s some of the stuff we saw on the tour. I have no idea what all of it is, or what is does, but Mommy and Daddy seemed to have a good time.
Remember that special guest I mentioned earlier??? Well, here she is. My beautiful cousin, Annie. Yes, Aunt J and Uncle D brought Annie along for the day. We had such a good time together.
Infact, while everyone else was doing something called “tasting”, this is what Annie and I did. It was a pawsome nap. A cool concrete floor and a warm friend, with Mommy and Daddy close by.
After my nap, oh, I mean the tasting, we went and got our picture taken. This is Mommy and Daddy and Me in the center. Mommy says it is really good that I know my name. That’s how they got me to look at the camera. This is a label that they had put on some of the wine that we bought.
And, yes, Rusty did have cake at his party. Mommy shared this super yummy piece with me!
I had soooo much fun at Rusty’s Birthday party. I just could not stay awake on the way home. I can’t wait to go again next year!!
Tomorrow will be “New Trick Tuesday”. I can’t wait to show you what I have been working on!
