Churchill is the adopted rescue dog of the Motel family. He is a very friendly yellow lab who is now the mascot of Sunset Meadow Vineyards. 

Churchill loves long walks in the vineyards, rides on the tractors and meeting and greeting the customers in the winery.

Stop by for a visit and say hello to Churchill.

Message from Churchill:

Hello Everyone!

What gorgeous weather we have been having.  I love my long walks on days like these and I especially love riding in the truck!   I think my new favorite place to go is the gas station.  I get to sit in the truck with the window down and people come and pet me while George is getting gas for all our equipment.  Some days we are there for awhile but I don’t mind.

churchill-2Thanks to all who sent messages and notes during my surgery.  I had a couple of lesions removed but I am fine now!  Everyone was so nice and sent me messages, thoughts and prayers – I really appreciate your kindness.

Be careful not to let your pet eat certain foods – I know one that is very bad for us canines – GRAPES.

There is a complete list of fruits and vegetables that are bad for dogs on my Facebook Page.  If you haven’t signed on you really should.  I try to keep you updated about what is going on in the animal community as well as what I am doing here at Sunset Meadow. Like my Facebook Page here 



I now have a new cousin!  Julius is a rescue adopted by Chris and Kristen a few months ago.  He is a puppy so he has LOTS of energy (not too happy about that!).  I am training him to help be another Mascot in our Tasting Room.  Now that the warmer weather is here I spend most of my days in the vineyards with George so Julius will help out in the tasting room.  Be sure to say Hi to him!

I hope all of you get a chance to get outdoors and enjoy nature.  We take so much for granted but I appreciate each day I can be free to run and jump and play outside.  If you can, consider adopting a shelter pet. We will be loyal for life!

Time to go and smell the new mums we just planted!
