No, no, not those kind of benefits! Let me explain...
During my walk yesterday, we swung by Gigi's street to see if she was out-and-about. No sign of her. So my human rang the bell to see if we could find out Gigi's routine, so next walk we could plan to pass by when she was outside.
Gigi's human was pleasantly surprised and invited us to their backyard. There was Gigi, and boy was she happy to see me! She was on a long tie-out, 'cuz the neighbors had complained of her wandering onto their property (sheesh!). We felt bad that she couldn't enjoy her huge yard. My human would've suggested putting a gate across the only opening in their fence (the driveway entrance), but she didn't want to risk offending her new neighbor. So the two-leggers chatted while we doggies played.
Turns out, the family is from Albania, and there are six kids (!) in the family. They have grapevines planted along one wall; not a very common sight around these parts. My human asked if they were wine grapes, and Gigi's human said they were just decorative. But, they do make their own wine from purchased grapes. How cool is that?! My human got all lively 'cuz she used to work in the wine business (the things we learn about our humans, huh?!). Quick as a flash, Gigi's human disappeared into the house and returned with this:
My human was tickled pink! And Gigi's human said we could come into their backyard anytime to see if Gigi was outside. Ain't that great?! My human says she'll let you all know how the wine is when she tries it this weekend.
Speaking of weekends, mine will start with a bang: Twix and I and a bunch of our homegirls are having a Ladies Night Out! Woo-hoo! We're gonna paw-tay like there's no tomorrow! Read all about it on Twix's blog soon! Have a good one, efurrybody!
