The Wine Whine

Once again, Hu-Dad’s evening wine glass has attracted the attention of a Herd of canines, creating what he calls the wine whine.

Oh, look. Hu-Dad's glass of wine on the table.
Oh, look. Hu-Dad’s glass of wine on the table.

Hu-Dad has this silly idea that he should be able to sit on the deck in the evening, watch the sunset, enjoy the marsh life, and sip his glass of wine. We’re fine with that, but believe he should share.

What do you think I am up to, Hu-Dad?

Amazingly, he has this idea that we canines shouldn’t imbibe. Something about not good for our health (blah, blah, blah) which is the same thing he says about everything else we want to eat that isn’t on his menu. He and his silly “healthy dogs” rules.

But it sure smells good.

    Hu-dad nerds a “sippy” glass for his wine to eliminate the need for each of you to check it out making sure it’s fine for him to drink! Tee-hee
