Some of you know, I'm the official mascot fur the Ravenswood Winery Tasting Room. It doesn't come with any treats or anything, but I get a lot of lovin' and my picfur taken whenefur we go there, BOL
So today, they were having a big pawty! A 20th Annifursary, whatefur that means. Last time we were there, mommy promised that we'd all come. But mommy's been sick all week, so she wasn't sure she was up to the hour's drive. This morning, she decided it would be good to get some sun, and she had promised after all.
We went to another winery furst, where I was fussed ovfur while mommy and daddy had some wine with bubbles in it. And then we went to Ravenswood. But when we got there it was furry crowded, and they had parking guys who were taking everybody's cars somewhere else to park them. The parking guys said they'd be sure to find a shady spot so I'd be comfy in the car, because this event was No Dogs Allowed.
No way mommy and daddy would EVFUR leave me in a car! Furst of all it's just cruel, and second it's illegal! Mommy was ready to turn around and go home, but daddy told them, "He was invited! He's the mascot!" So the parking guys sent me and daddy up to talk to the people in charge while mommy waited in the car. Daddy talked to one guy, and then another girl, who went to talk to my friend Kristin, who said, "OMD (or something like that), of course HERSHEY can come!" She even walked me and daddy back down to the car and tied a V.I.P. badge around my neck just like mommy and daddy's, and told the parking guys I was A-OKAY!
So then we went right up to the deck and staked out our chairs, and fur the rest of the day I entertained my fans and wagged my tail and begged fur treats and got my picfur taken and mommy even gave me two bites of HER cheese! It was a pawsome day!
What is up with dumb people saying "Leave your dog in the car!" Honestly!!!
I'm glad you had fun, and you got some cheese!!!
Mommy couldn't believe they even suggested that! We sure hope nobody else took them up on it!
Didn't those parking guys know you are the mascot? How dare they! Good thing your pawrents spoke to someone - next time you shouldn't have a problem! Cheese, that sounds pretty good!
Wow! What a pawesome badge you got Hersh!
**Bonk on the head** to those parking attendants! Some peoples!
Glad you had a great time though! :D
Those parking peeps should have been told ahead of time that you were an expected and loved guest...afterall you are the mascot and got an invitation! Sheesh!

The sun made mommy feel much better, thanks Zaidie! Or maybe it was the wine, BOL!!!
It definitely made mommy think of you, and she made FURRY SURE those guys knew it's illegal to leave doggies in cars. They weren't mean, though. They were just young, and trying to be nice. It was their idea to get me in!
Glad to hear that a little bubbly, er, I mean sun, helped your momma to feel better - BOL, BOL

Conwagulations on Diary Pick today!
Of course you are a VIP. I do think that the humans should have told the parking attendents that you were invited because I bet they are the ones that made it "no dogs allowed" so the parking attendents were just doing their job.
