Ask Beau - "Who is your biggest fan?"
Nope - nobody asked that question. I did. Why? Because I wanted to share with you that my biggest fan and best buddy died this week. Minnie - my ten year-old Irish Wolf Hound - my best friend and first "child" lived a great and wonderful life. She was in a word too smart for her own good. She could also smile. Don't you love that? A dog that can smile. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. Minnie used to sit under my table when I did my tastings - a virtual foot warmer and floor mat in one. And after a tasting where perhaps I didn't spit as much as I should have - she and I would then rough house. She was tall enough to put her paws on my shoulders and we would dance. And there is a small chance that you may have seen her, as she marched in the St. Patrick's Day Parade every year with her sister Poppie, who we had to put down three months ago. (Another very special IWH, who was a year younger than Minnie.) Two great hounds. I will miss them dearly.
