Williamsburg Farmers' Market

We went to the Williamsburg Farmers' Market this morning. It was a good morning to attend--a little overcast, not too hot and not very crowded. You can attend this market every Saturday morning from 8 till noon. It's free to park at the Francis Street parking lot.
Lots of corn, melons and tomatoes! Must be summer! Our van smelled like basil all the way home.
PG & Sammy found this wire and moss poodle who they thought was very interesting! She had many other wire and moss creatures, too--a little bunny rabbit that would have made an interesting display in a yard with a greyhound. There are lots of other real dogs at the market, too. And there is a stand at the market that sells home made dog biscuits. PG liked the tuna one--Sammy liked the peanut butter one.
 Lots of pretty sunflowers at the flower stand!
After walking through the market, I take the dogs on a little extra walk down Duke of Gloucester Street. It makes for a nice morning in Williamsburg.
Wish you were here!

Passion for Paws Picnic & Wine Tasting, Suffolk, Va

This afternoon we went to an outdoor picnic and wine tasting at River Stone Chophouse in Suffolk. It was a fundraiser for the Suffolk Humane Society.

It was very hot and humid but we made the best of it. Dogs laid on their pillows while we ate homemade hot dogs, potato chips and pasta salad. We also did a charming wine tasting--they had all wines named with animal themes--14 Hands Hot to Trot, 3 Blind Moose, Herding Cats, Goats du Roam, Rabid Red and Bitch! The organizers had asked us to do a freestyle demo but it was really too hot for that. The dogs would have been lethargic and not in the mood to perform. Wouldn't have been any fun to watch.
The statue cow was the only animal that didn't have its tongue hanging out from the heat!
Sammy and PG were fighting for pool rights! It's my turn now! No, it's my turn!

Sammy met his doppelganger there! He and Chloe had the exact same markings--right down to the smart mark in the middle of their foreheads! That was so cool to see! The guy who owned Chloe said that people had told him she had greyhound in her but he didn't believe it. Now he does!

Big thanks to Brian and Teresa from River Stone Chophouse.
Wish you were here!
