She is such a good passenger. She can't stand in a moving vehicle really, she's too wobbly for that, so she just lays quietly in the back. Lady weighs only 55 pounds, so I can easily lift her in and out of the van as required and she stands and waits for me to do so.
Both of the gift baskets are similar, an (empty) growler, a couple glasses, and a variety of other items presented in a galvanized ice bucket with the brewery's logo. Both are very nice and greatly appreciated. They should do well at the auction.
|No, she's not having a taste, but she may be thinking of it.|
I picked up the 6-pack of Blue Mountain's Kolsch, for me.

Lady epitomizes the goals of the rescue and the need for the fundraising effort. She's a senior dog, which are often more costly in terms of vet care, and this one has a number of known medical problems. We probably won't recoup any of the cost through an adoption fee because she's pretty much unadoptable. Financially speaking, she will be a drain on the rescue even though we aren't going to do anything heroic for her medically. But we aren't in this to make a buck, the goal is to save dogs. She needs and deserves the best care we can give her even if it's only to keep her well fed, pain-free, happy and comfortable in a loving home for as long as possible.
Starr Hill is in Crozet, Blue Mountain is out in Nelson County. I'm a customer and a fan of both. Life is too short to drink cheap beer. Lady and I say "cheers."
