*Wine Country Wienerfest May 5, 2013 Temecula San Diego Wedding Officiant

Wiener Dog racing at the 2013 Wine Country Wiener Fest, TemeculaNo Weddings for this Wedding Officiant this weekend.  It was time to prepare for, help with, and enjoy the Fourth Annual Wine Country Weinerfest hosted by Mount Palomar Winery.  If you know me, you know my mini-Dachshund, Hunter, rocks my world.  We belong to the Temecula Valley Dachshund Club who puts on this event every year.  For me, it’s like Christmas.  Hundreds of little Doxies, well-behaved and having fun.  Some of the dogs love to race and can’t wait to get to the starting line.  Others, like Hunter, don’t care for it.  They are never forced to race or do anything they don’t want to do.  Hunter is more of a “spectator” type of dude.  He would simply rather hang out with his buddies from the Doxie club. In fact, his nickname in the club is “The Observer.”

As we enjoyed our day, I was reminded of what a beautiful venue Mount Palomar Winery is for a Wedding!  The beautiful pergolas; the well-kept grounds.  It was a little odd to be there and be “off the clock.”  And…we were able to enjoy the great boxed lunches provided by Mount Palomar.  I don’t know what they do to make their potato salad absolutely the best I have ever tasted.  (I think they bake the potatoes with the skins on and then dice them, and they use mustard seed rather than prepared mustard.)  Whatever they do, it is a must try.  Oh, and for once…..I could have a glass of wine!  I sure can’t do that at a Wedding!  Can’t wait until next year when we get to do it again!

Please check out Two Rings Wedding Officiant Facebook page for more great photos of a very cool day in Temecula!  We were able to find homes for several of our foster dogs, and we raised over $3500 which will buy lots of food for those who remain in foster care.  Almost Home Dachshund Rescue and Sunny Oasis Dachshund Rescue, we love you and all you do!
