4: Cheers to Dogs!

We had two versions of Pinot Noir for this episode; regular Pinot Noir and Rose de Pinot Noir! Our spread included aged cheddar, chili-cheese dip, Parmesan Pastry Pups from Trader Joe's, and Fritos -- you know, because we're classy! And thank goodness for Mark, Emily's husband, who has worked on making the sound quality MUCH better for this episode -- notice the two pairs of headphones he's wearing. And, poor Little Man didn't stay long for our recording, since he was afflicted with fleas (he's much better now and flea-free).

This episode has gone to the dogs, as we discuss man's best friend. We're unofficially celebrating National Hot Dog Month in July, and Emily has some exciting news about her whereabouts this coming weekend!

Our wine for this episode: Robert Mondavi Private Selection 2011 Pinot Noir & Earthshaker Wines 2014 Rose de Pinot Noir
Our cheese for this episode: Aged cheddar and a chili cheese dip (made with Cheez Whiz!)

We also have Trader Joe's Parmesan Pastry Pups, which are the fanciest pigs in blankets we've ever seen!

Whether you're a dog person or a cat person, you're sure to enjoy our episode about canine companions, including some dog etiquette (more for the owners than the dogs, themselves); James' story of why his neighbor thinks he collects dog poop; Queen Elizabeth II and her corgies, who terrorize England; the unofficial name for a group of corgies; Rex Reagan's reign in the White House; an extravagant dog ball; how the Mets are awesome; the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show; and how celebrity dogs are getting bigger inheritances than we are. 

We also give some shoutouts to some of the great people with whom we've Tweeted, including @thewinewrite, @kiwiandkoala, @karinalongworth and @rememberthispod, and @normalwine.

And, thanks to So That Happened!!! for giving us a shoutout on their podcast! Cheers!

Emily's big adventure this coming weekend will be attending Podcast Movement 2015 in Fort Worth, Texas! Thanks to Spreaker for the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of the greatest podcasters out there!
