Wine-soaked adventures through a twisted life…

Malcolm the Pug is NOT a Wine Dog…

If you’ve spent any time in California wine country, you have surely come across a wine dog.  They are usually very lazy and unmotivated and lying in a patch of shade somewhere on the property.  If you’re lucky, they will come and greet you as you roll up to the tasting room but then they usually disappear.

My pug Malcolm is not one of these dogs.  In fact, he’s something of an anomaly.  Pugs, of course, are not generally known for their athletic prowess.  But almost every Saturday, my wife takes Malcolm to an actual doggie gym in Sherman Oaks called Zoom Room so he can let off a little steam.  He also performs tricks and stunts on the obstacle course they set up for him and gets to eat a LOT of treats.  NOW I’m beginning to understand why he likes it so much.

Anyway, today Daddy paid a visit to see how far Malcolm has come in his training…
