We need pictures for the 2016 Calendar!

+ 10 bailey & ginger 1 oct

Without your wonderful photos, there can be no calendar!

Hey, all you beautiful Goldens, DON’T BE LAZY!  Get your human companions to keep their cameras on hand for all the cute moments you provide.  YOU, TOO, could be in the 2016 Calendar!

We are in dire need of seasonal pictures to fill our empty calendar.  Last year we had to beg for fall and Halloween pics.  We did get a couple of really GRREAT ones but I know there are more out there to be discovered.2016 calendar contest rules

You may now submit your pictures year-round at calendar@adoptagolden.com.  Send them as you take them.  We are at work 24/7.

If you don’t have your 2015 Calendar yet, look for it at one of our upcoming events or order it on line at http://www.adoptagolden.com.

Thanks for your continued support  of our beloved dogs.

And be sure to have your pup dressed in their Halloween best for the costume contest!!
Yappy Hours! Every Sunday Keswick Vineyards is a big supporter of rescuing animals (we have 16 rescued dogs and cats of our own!) and so Yappy Hours is a weekly event, in which we invite local animal shelters to visit and bring their furry friends that are in need of homes. Everyone is invited to come out and bring their own furry friends and enjoy the company of all, with the end goal being to find some homes for these animals in need. For every bottle opened during Yappy Hours Keswick Vineyards donates a dollar to the visiting animal rescue shelter!

Looking for something to do this dreary day? IT’S NOT TOO LATE to go to the CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL!!

+++ 04 Hank-Coutcher02 britanyzoo - AprilAre you just sitting around watching TV and bored to tears?  Time’s a-wasting!  Jump in the car and head to the VIRGINIA CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL before they run out of beer!

Thanks to our GRREAT friends at DoG Street Pub, SEVA GRREAT has been chosen as one of the rescues to benefit from the festivities at the Virginia Craft Beer Festival.

You still have time to get there.  WHERE?  Merchants Square in Williamsburg.  It started a little while ago but if you hurry (but don’t go any faster than your guardian angel can fly!) you can still make it.  Oh, make sure you have a designated driver to come back home.

AND, you can be among the first to see the NEW 2016 CALENDAR!

I’m leaving now!
