Is It Okay To Drink And Bark?
Many wineries welcome dogs

Hotels have become more dog friendly, and so have many businesses. Years ago it was rare to walk into a store to be greeted by a dog, but now it’s unremarkable. More and more people are bringing their dogs to work, and they are more common visitors at hospitals, schools, and rehab centers.

Still, it represents a big advance that so many wineries have resident dogs or welcome visitors with their own dogs in tow. In the October 2009 issue of Diablo Magazine, wineries in Northern California that welcome dogs are highlighted. How much nicer is it to take your dog with you for a relaxing weekend in the wine country than to go alone. When you can bring your dog and drink wine, you have found a place where life is good!

Nemo and I visited two dog-friendly New York vineyards on Outdoor Bound's Dog, Beach, & Vine day trip. It was a lot of fun!

Maybe it's just because I love dogs, but I do seem to notice them more and more. Since I lost my old dog Sterling, 4 years ago, it seems I always see him somewhere. I guess it's just a dog that looks like him but I'm so grateful I painted plenty of pictures of him before he died. It keeps him alive more me.
