Hi, "Zephyr Hill Windsong" here, but you can just call me Zephyr. Or Zeph. Or Zef-Zef. Or Zephy. You can pretty much call me anything you want but late for dinner. I thought I would surprise Mommy by getting on the computer and telling all about my very first trip ever.
CCS had a fall and broke something, so on Oct. 16, Daddy, Mommy, and I drove in the car all the way to Williamsburg. It was a very long time to stay in my crate, but I was very good and quiet the whole time. I didn't know where we were going, but as soon as I got out of the car, I could tell that Jenny and Jean-Marc were there. I thought, "So this is where they go when they disappear!" They had presents for me--a rawhide bone and a ball. I discovered something they didn't even know--the ball squeaked! I had so much fun making it squeak and squeak and squeak . . . At first I thought Jean-Marc didn't love me anymore because he wouldn't throw the ball, but then Mommy explained that Dr. Keller said I have Arthur Eyetis' hind leg and I had to rest.. So I spent a lot of time chewing on my bone, too. I chewed it so much I forgot to eat!
The next day, Jenny and Jean-Marc took us on the Virginia Whine Trail near Charlottesville. I guess there must have been a lot of famous whiners in Virginia for them to make such a long trip to see them. First we went to Jefferson Vineyards which is near Montpellier where some President, Clinton I think, made whine. I know Daddy and Mommy didn't like him very much as a president, but they all said his whine was excellent. I think whine must be contagious because Daddy caught a case of it. They didn't want me to catch it, so they left me in the car after they took my picture near The Great Plumpkin. It really is plump! See, it's bigger than me!
After that we went to lunch. Well, they did. They ate at an Afghan restaurant called Ariana, and it was delicious. I know because Mommy brought me the lamb bones even though Daddy thought the waiter was offended because she said they were for her dog. I'm sure if he could have met me, he wouldn't have minded. Anyway, they use lots of mint-flavored yogurt and delicious spices, and Daddy and Mommy loved the food!
