For the record, I have three dogs. Today, I will introduce you to Mojito. She comes from a long line of spirited dogs in our family. We started with Champagne, Cognac, Chianti, Merlot, Bacchus and the other two current ones are Bordeaux and Riesling. So, this affair with wine or dogs, is legitimate.
We took our Alaskan Malamute, Mojito on a hike. She loves to be outside and she loves water even more. When dad got a pebble in his shoe, she jumped in to stomp around in the squishy mud.
In our house, you may hear Elvis, but probably not Hound Dog as it doesn’t reflect too nicely on a dog just because he failed to catch a rabbit. You might hear The Monkees because since we have three, we tend to agree with the theory, Gonna Buy Me A Dog. I realize, inserting the link to identify Elvis was probably not needed but when Kurt Cobain has surpassed him in searches, I thought I would just be safe and give equal time.
So, what do you pair with a spirited malamute named after a refreshing latin drink?
Yes, you serve a pinot noir from Chateau La Paws that proudly supports no kill animal shelters and serves up a really nice red wine. I tend to pair my wines with the weather too, and summer is perfect for a full-bodied red but that is on the lighter side. Plus, the terrier on the label is so cute, could you resist this face if you saw it on a shelf? I didn’t think so. I have had others from the vineyard, and I encourage you to try them next time you are purchasing wine.
If you want to know if Merlot approved? See for yourselves.
She gives it a good sniff and was pleased with the decision.
Until next time, keep waggin’ and celebrate you!
