Driving up the driveway, we were greeted by a huge black lab who barked and stood in front of the car to make sure we found the right parking space. This was the first weekend trip we took Kody on and given his history with not getting along with other dogs, I was a little nervous. Turns out once we got out of the car, the black lab, named Percy, was a wonderful hostess. She allowed Kody to do his sniffing and he calmed down enough by the end of the weekend to look out the door when she came to beg for treats without an incident.
I had planned for wine tasting at the Wild Horse winery, so we headed out there Saturday afternoon. I knew they were dog friendly. What I didn’t realize was that most wineries are dog friendly and we had probably half a dozen within walking distance of where we were staying.
But Wild Horse was great. They had two llamas and the wine was wonderful. There was one bad moment. Apparently Kody was confused when I said we were going wine tasting. He thought I said “rabbit tasting.” As we were walking him around the grounds, he stuck his head in a bush and came out with a rabbit. He dropped it after I screamed hysterically. The D-Man said the rabbit may have still been alive, but we headed out before anyone realized we had a killer on a leash.
We had great meals in Paso Robles at The Park Street Grill and the Odyssey Café, enjoyed some walks where Kody discovered what cows are and some great fire pit time.
All too soon, we were back in the car heading home with a couple of bottles of Wild Horse wine and a dog who still didn’t quite understand why take-out rabbit from a bush was a bad thing. I can’t wait to go on our next adventure!
