Bung the Wonder Dog on Harvest at Bonair Winery

Monday, September 30th, 2013

My buddy, Bung the Wonder Dog at Bonair Winery  took time out of his busy day to show me some of his harvest “duties.”  Look at these photos demonstrating his hard work ensuring his humans are harvesting and preparing the grapes properly for the wine making process.  Bung secretly told me that he needs to watch over Bill, “the winemaker” to ensure that Bonair’s wine is created with much care and attention. 

 

 

Bung gets in the truck early in the morning to go to work.   Always waiting…

 

 

 

 

 

Supervising the press to make sure the pan does not overflow.

“Bill, I think you need to turn the pump on.”

 

 

 

 

Bung is Bonair’s number 1 forklift driver.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Human, there are too many stems in the bin. They need to be shoveled.”

Stuka, Chica and Teepees

Monday, September 16th, 2013

Woof, it’s September!  I’m still trying to figure out what I’d been doing over the last month.  It has been a really hot summer so I have spent a lot of time swimming and rolling in the dirt.  My human wasn’t pleased with me as you can probably see.  I have not been allowed to ride in her car for extended periods of time which has limited my Yakima Valley adventures.

I was chatting with my buddy Stuka at Cherry Wood Bed, Breakfast and Barn getting the scoop on prairie dog hunting and he mentioned that his human has been renovating her teepees for the visiting humans that spend the night.  I, myself, prefer sleeping in the house on the couch or in my luxurious bed but I guess some humans like to “rough it” in a luxury teepee. 

Chica and Stuka

Stuka also mentioned that his summer brought a new canine family member into the mix.  Check out Chica’s story, it is doggone amazing, be sure to scroll down past the info on the hooved beasts.
