I know you aren’t used to seeing me in tee shirts. Heck, I am not used to seeing me in tee shirts. I had to put a bit of my own spin on things, but this graphic tee really spoke to me and I had to get it! “Dog Mother Wine Lover” was the shirt for me!
I bought one other tee this year, and I shared it yesterday on the blog, in the post, Pittsburghese, How to Talk Like a Pittsburgher. So have a read 🙂
As Maria, from the Sound of Music once said, “These are a few of my favorite things..” I am a dog momma to Gibson and Truffles, the two most delightful bears on the planet. They make me smile and I never get tired of being around my pups. I have been a dog lover since I was a tiny tot.
We had Shadow, a black little mutt, I fell in love with at 6 years of age, when I held her in my arms. The next dog was Buttercup, a loving, blonde mutt who we loved watching her eat peanut butter off her long nose.
I have always had a love and affinity for dogs and hope to volunteer at a local shelter in the future. Dogs are great companions, there for you no matter what, and love you as you love them. I always stop to pet the pooches when we are out. I can’t help myself!
I love to think of myself as a dog advocate, as I sign petitions and write my Congresswoman about abolishing puppy mills and other animal issues I feel strongly about.
My hubby and laugh as when I was little we had “mutts” a mixture of certain breeds. Now, there are so many mixed breeds, but no one calls them mutts, as if that is a derogatory term! You hear I have a Golden-shitzu-poodle- or a goldenzuoodle… Ok, I made that up, but people do love to tell you all the breeds in their dog.
Another thing we love to joke about is our sophisticated wine palettes, remembering a time where the Box of Wine reigned as Queen. Franzia, Zinfandel was the wine of choice in college, or around that age, as fine wines weren’t as easy to afford, and you can get a lot of wine from that box! 😉
Now, as I am older, I love to sniff and swirl. I find that I am more content when I get to do that before sipping. ( you know I am kidding!) My wine tastes have changed a bit when I used to favor a spicy Syrah or Shiraz and now, I have opened my mind to more complex Cabernets and have a love for Spanish Wines. I still can’t detect marshmallow or toasted almonds in my wines, but know I love a fruit forward dry wine. And let’s face it, it’s all about enjoying the flavor!
These photos were taken at “The Cottage”, a place where everyone knows your name. Oh, that’s Cheers! Well, everyone knows our names there too, as we will go there to hang out, have a conversation and enjoy the view when it’s warm, as it is by Lake Norman. They also love having the pups there.
We have over 100 vineyards here in NC, and many near us, so you will be seeing some posts on our local NC Vineyards as well.I have written about a few, so if you live nearby, or want to visit, the Yadkin Valley area, has many wineries. And don’t fear! NC is not only about sweet wines ( Scuppernog, and Moscato) as I don’t like anything sweet, even Resiling! Our favorite vineyard, an hour away, Raylen Vineyards, has many events and welcome doggies They also have some outstanding wines, our favorite lately, is the BB Blend. The Borbon Barrelled red wine.
