Take the wine cork, for example, or a glass of wine: People regularly put their nose near both, all to sense the bouquet, moxie, and depth of the vino, but your baby barker best stay at your feet, snoozing, while you engage in cork- or wine-sniffery.

    SUNDAY, JUNE 3: It's the inaugural Wags & Wine event in Livermore Valley, and "(m)ore than 25 local wineries have partnered with 12 Bay Area animal rescues to host a day of wine tasting, dog adoptions, and fun activities..." built around pleasing Fidos and those people who adore Fidos. For sure, you'll meet cuties needing a forever home along the way, and you'll also find goodies and activities created for your own canine. Big White House Winery will erect a bandanna-decorating station, dog photo booths are popping up at both Darcie Kent Vineyards and Page Mill Winery, and Camp Bow Wow Livermore'll visit Wente Vineyards. Also? A welcome bag from EntirelyPets is also part of the spring-into-summer bark-around. A ticket is $30 ahead of time, and includes a special glass and two tastes at participating winery. Buying your admission there? It'll be $35. Needing all the deets so you can tell your dog what's up? Woof woof.
