Real Estate Broker/Owner with Saint Francis Property Santa Rosa, CA 01368633

That's right, Bagel!

Bagel at Simi Winery's Summer of Puppy LoveBagel and Gwen receive 1st prize for best dog costume from Norman "Spirit in the Sky" Greenbaum

Gwen and I agreed to each get a dogs costume ready. I picked Jerry, and she picked Bagel.  I chose a costume bought from Amazon, and Gwen took a more "homemade" approach.  The guest judge, Norman Greenbaum author and singer of the 60's hit Spirit in the Sky recognized Gwen's hard work and picked Bagel to win the gift basket of dog toys and treats.  


Here are a few pics from the event:

For those who missed my earlier post, this event was held at Simi Winery in Healdsburg, CA on 8/19/17.  It was called Summer of Puppy Love, and was a benefit for the none profit Paws for Love.

Great costumes Jim. Bagel & Jerry look like they're having a blast hanging out in "the past"! Homemade trounces whatever you can buy at Amazon everytime

Jim Cheney You have to love beagles. They are so lovable, but often very stubborn once their nose is to the ground. Is Bagel trained to sniff out the best vino?
