I just did a bicycle tour of some of the wineries in Napa Valley, and I discovered what is becoming a wonderful tradition. They have greeter dogs! Seriously! We would pull up on our bicycles, all sweaty and hot, and one or two big ol' dogs, usually yellow or black labs, would waddle over to us, accept our pets and praise, and then lead us to the tasting room. One of the places we visited is so serious that they even have two puppies in training for the task, being tutored by a staffer and the older dogs. There's a book out on the subject, if anyone is interested. Also, if there is any interest, I'll post a couple of pictures. By the way, Pont. One of the greeter dogs is a cat named Zephyr, whose job is to serve as a warning against over indulgence. More on that if anyone wants me to post the details.
