Grapehound Weekend

A couple of weeks ago, we went to a greyhound event in western Virginia where we toured a number of wineries. It was a very fun (and expensive!!) weekend. The weather was beautiful and we bought a gazillion bottles of wine. And some new presents for Ramona. Yay!

Wineries we visited: Willow Croft Farm, Tarara, Three Fox, and Barrel Oak.

While we were there, we ran into a couple we had met at our vet's Halloween doggie party. We remembered them because their dog, Tabasco, looks EXACTLY like Ramona. During the weekend, we looked up their pedigrees, and it turns out they're cousins! Super fun. They're both offspring of offspring of HB's Commander, Karla Jones, Dutch Bahama, AND K's Flak. Super champions.

Oh, except only Ramona got the champion genes. Tabasco only ran in four races and got last place in all of them. Tee-hee :)

Some pictures?

Grapehounds!!

We also took a nice hike in the Blue Ridge mountain range, which Ramona thought was fantastico.

P.S. The Tarara Chardonnay and the Barrel Oak Norton are TO.DIE.FOR. Just sayin'

  1. Sounds like a very fun and beautiful trip. What can I say about the Greyhounds???? They are one of the most loving and beautiful creatures put on this earth. I'm so glad you got to spend so much time with them. I love them so much, even looked into adopting 2. However, without a fenced in yard, and the way they are known to run, I was too afraid.

    I LOVE the pictures. Wine, greyhounds and the mountains, sounds like the perfect trip.
