This Saturday, Winson had a few friends over for hot dogs. The spread was complete with Carolina hot dogs with chili and slaw, pesto pasta salad, crudities and dip, fruit and a variety of cookies. Winston’s dog friends Henry and Capt. Milo attended and we had peanut butter dog biscuits for them too. The day was very cold but we appreciated everyone braving the cold for a good romp in the backyard.
The party was also the perfect way to celebrate my year anniversary on Mendenhall. A friend asked me as I gave her the grand (but small) tour if I felt at home – and indeed I do. Later in the evening, Winston was more tired than I have ever seen him. Andrew built a fire inside to warm up. It was when Andrew asked if he could hold Winston (I thought Uncle Andy might not ever warm up to Winston) I realized that it is Winston that makes my house a home. This week I’ll post the recipes from Winston’s hot dog party.
