This weekend is Red Wine & Chocolate in the Yakima Valley! I’m very excited for my owner to take me to all of the festivities too .. and she even told me that a certain wine doggie wants to be MY valentine!!!  If you don’t believe me, look at the note he left for me below!! I think you know who I’m talking about, he lives at Bonair Winery…and his name is Bung!  We have met a few times – and my little tail can’t stop wagging when I’m around him.

Today, I helped my owner deliver the new 2016 Travel Guides to our member wineries in Benton City. We made stops at Mercer Wine Estates, Chandler Reach Vineyards, Col Solare Winery, Cooper Wine Company, Sleeping Dog Wines, Tapteil Vineyard and Tucannon Cellars.  I was greeted by quite a few dogs at almost every stop – all very friendly – but it was raining outside, so I said hello to them from the backseat window.  I was hoping to see Bud at Cooper Wine Company, but he was visiting his grandparents for the weekend.  And when we arrived at Mercer Wine Estates, I had fun on their walking trail – I even saw a bunny jump out in front of me, that was so exciting!!

Well, it’s time for me to get ready for my day at the Pet Spa tomorrow – I need to look pretty for Red Wine & Chocolate.. and my valentine, Bung. If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, you’ll want to make a trip out to the Yakima Valley, Washington Wine Country.. and bring your furry friend with you too, Puppy Love is in the air! .. “Penny & Bung sitting by the tree..K-I-S-S-I-N-G”  ~Penny The Pill

Bung The Wonder Dog – AKA Penny’s Valentine!

Winter is over and the sun is shining and I am feeling fine and frisky and ready to start working, after a lazy winter. Today I am heading out with my best friend Bonair Gail to do some work in the vineyard.  This is serious business. First we have to check out the pond- and today we discovered dozens of gold fish on the surface- I guess they are excited about the good weather too.  Next I have to check out our pruning crew and politely wait until sometimes a tasty tidbit or two  drops into my mouth.  Then finally I have to bound up and down the vineyard rows just checking to see if a squirrel or rabbit might be out that I can pretend to chase.  I like those wild animals- they are friends of mine, but it is fun to tease them a little.

At the end of today, it will be a much needed rest dozing with my head on Bonair Gail’s lap.  It really is a dog’s life!    I am looking forward to seeing my dog friends and their owners at Bonair Winery.  We are open every day from 11-4. I’m kinda shy around girls, but Penny the Pill, will you be my valentine?

Your friend,
