In 1995, the Leinenkugel Brewery had the brilliant idea to start brewing their Honey Weiss! This is the beer I’m named after. Mom said my coat color was like the Honey Weiss label. Now she admits I’m more like the Classic Amber, but we won’t go into that now.

This beer has won 5 awards and is the Brewery’s biggest seller. In the American Style Wheat Ale or Lager Category it won: Silver in the World Beer Cup 2006, 2004 and 2000 and Gold in 2002 and it won Silver in 1998 at Great American Beer Festival.

Mom loves that she can find Leinie’s Honey Weiss in stores in Richmond VA year round!

So Happy 15th Anniversary Leinie’s Honey Weiss!!!

I know spring is here! Mom is sneezing a whole lot, my toys are covered in pollen when I go out in the morning, it is staying lighter later, there are some rogue daffodils in the backyard, and I’m getting to go to more appointments with my mom!

So Mom, Pepper and I went to visit our friends at the Georgia Dog Gym this past weekend. Mom introduced us to this cool little dog named Frappuccino, Frappy for short. She is wicked good fun and guess what, she came home with us!!!

Mom told me that Frappy and I will share duties at Follow Me Dog Training LLC and that I am supposed to help Frappy learn the ropes. This is going to be a blast.

A couple people have already asked Mom why she didn’t name Frappy after a beer. Frankly it is because I told Mom that really you should only have one Beer Dog in the house at a time!

Plus, look at this…

I think she is named appropriately!

While Mom was in GA, I encouraged her to pick a six pack of Terrapin Beer. So she grabbed some Hop Karma IPA. It is an Indian style brown ale….Mom liked it. Did you know that you can take your dog to the beer garden at the Terrapin Brewery in Athens GA? Yep, they can’t go in the brewery but are welcomed leashed to the Garden…I think that needs to be part of our next road trip to GA!

I’m tired from our trip and need to count the Kong Balls to see if I can give one up to Frappy….

I enjoy the snow I really do but is it just me or does it feel like it snowed every week since Thanksgiving? I’m ready for warm weather for a couple reasons:

  • I get to go back to work with mom. When it is too cold out or there is alot of snow on the ground I don’t want to be stuck in the car or have to wait in the snow while mom is teaching.
  • We do more walking around and adventuring. Where’s Leinie? is one of my favorite parts of my job and it isn’t as fun in the cold!

  • Our morning walks are sometimes cut short because none of us want to be out in below freezing temperatures!
  • Spring time means green grass and cold Summer Shandy!
