How We Had Time to Become a Pack...Part I

So Mom and FAJ ran off and left us AGAIN!  For 5 whole days.  Ok well really 3 whole days and 2 sort of days.   So Dad was on puppy duty.  He took really good care of all of us.  Of course he was the one that put Ruger in the cone, but it was for his own good.

So were did Mom and FAJ go?  Well they went to Oregon.  They did lots of stuff while they were gone but the big thing they went to do was run ANOTHER (and FAJ says last) half marathon.  It was the Oregon Wine Country Half-Marathon.   They had a most marvelous run.  They finished in 2:22:15.  Seems  to be about their average.

They started out by going to visit some friends of FAJ.  While they were there they went to several wineries.

They started off here.

Their beautiful outdoor patio. 

Mom thought this was most funny! 

Next stop was Silvan Ridge, right across the street. 

Mom was trying to figure out the timer on the camera and FAJ was messing around while she did, this was the picture that was finally captured. 

Mom got the timer working!  Yeah! 

This was the last stop for the day. 

This included a tour of their wine making operation. 

Mom and FAJ are trying to figure out how to have this barrel delivered.  BOL!

Look at this view! 

Over looking the vineyard. 

More of the vineyard. 

Mom wanted me to tell you that they did go for a training run before they started all their wine tasting.  They also said this was a horrible way to spend a beautiful Friday afternoon but someone has to do it.  

So Mom can go a bit crazy with the flashy beast so we'll stop here for now and give you another update, hopefully tomorrow!
