Best in Show…4.0 Style

What do a piñata, four pugs, and the Big Bad Wolf have in common? Well, they all attended our annual Howl-o-Ween and Wine celebration and dog costume contest on Sunday, and if you weren’t here for the fun, you missed a wide variety of dogs in some very creative costumes.  Continue »

Now that I’m back home in Texas and living in Fredericksburg, I can add Oktoberfest to the long list of things worth celebrating in October.  Continue »
