Hey everyone, I figured it was time to introduce myself. My name’s Maggie, and I’m the newest member of the Hawk Haven family! I was born on August 15th in 2010, and I came home to my new family at Hawk Haven on October 6th! People say that I’m a full bred German Short-Haired Pointer, but I just know that I’m a lucky dog with a whole vineyard to run around in every day!
Ever since my first week here I’ve know that I’m a vineyard dog. I spend every day with Todd, we walk up and down the rows, prune and take care of the vines, and I even help greet customers that come to the tasting room sometimes! Some days I don’t get to come out, so I just sit and keep a lookout through the window for my people to come home. I don’t mind, sometimes it’s good to take a break!
My favorite thing in the whole world to do is play fetch! I like chasing my ball, and even fetching cut vines. My newest trick is pretty great, I can catch a ball in mid air! The other thing I like to do is point; it’s something Pointers like me are made to do, you know? I make sure to point out all the critters that run around the vineyard, and I help chase off the birds. Todd and Kenna say that if I keep the birds away from the grapes at harvest time that I’ll be earning my keep. That sounds pretty great to me, I figure that people appreciate all the work that Todd and Kenna put into the grapes more than those old birds do!
If you want to be a vineyard dog like me, just stop by Hawk Haven and say hello. If you get your people to take a picture of you while you’re here, and send it to Todd and Kenna, they might even put it up on something called Facebook. That sounds fun right? A great time to stop by is on Sundays, we have a party every Sunday here!
Anyway, I hope I see all of you at the vineyard someday soon! Bye!
