How did Bung get his name?

Bung barked me up and said he wanted to reach out and tell a little bit more about himself.  ~ Cooper

Hi again from Bung at Bonair Winery. 

I love this time of the year.  Winemaker Bill and I have a lot of work to do together.  We have to check out the bungholes in every oak barrel to make sure the wine is aging wonderfully.  Sometimes the bung pops out of the barrel and I race to retrieve it for Bill.  In case you don’t know, that is where I got my name.  When I was a puppy I used to think the bungs were my own chew toys and I got the nickname Bung, which stuck and is now my official name.I still like to play with the old used bungs once in awhile to remind me of my puppyhood. 

Please come see me and give me a belly rub.  I would love to meet any doggies that visit the winery with their owners.  We have a big grassy area to run and play around together.  One thing though…we can’t chase the ducks. 

Hope to play with you soon!
