Winery Dog Day with Chance and Schatzi!

Walking through the winery
Recently we met Whitney and Mike at a Winery near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania that was holding a "Dog Day." It was a fundraising event for dogs, and people were welcome to bring their dogs, so we all did. Whitney and Mike adopted (our former foster Weimaraner) Chance and also have a mini-dacshund named Schatzi.

  We left our elder Dachshund, Sprite with Tom's folks, and took Dolly and Franklin on the ride. It took over 2 hours to get there, and 2 more to get back -but we had a wonderful time together. We got to walk the dogs around the vineyard, check out a lot of dog-related vendors, enjoy a lunch together, and the dogs got to see each other again. 
  Chance looked wonderful!  His formerly lame leg had developed good muscle and he was walking with barely a limp (he had hip surgery in June). Whitney and Mike are doing an awesome job in Chance's recovery, and it was SO great to see them all.  Here are some pictures from that memorable afternoon.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
