"Tickle My Belly Day" all started when our wine club manager, Monica, had one her famous "shower" ideas. What's a "shower" idea you ask? A great idea you have in the shower and hope you remember it by the time you get out! Her thought..."We have a wine called Tickle Me Pink and dogs like to have their bellies tickled...how can we combine the two...and maybe benefit the animals?" We don't even want to know what else goes on in her head, but we love her anyway. Being that she is a big animal lover and advocate, as well as a wine lover, the idea for
"Tickle My Belly Day" was born, and boy did it take off!
With months of planning and teamwork, on October 28, 2017, it all came together. The event, hosted by Scott Harvey Wines, the Amador County Animal Control Shelter, Goin' Postal and The Feed Barn in Jackson, featured a special wine tasting menu, including our Tickle Me Pink Rosé, hot dogs, chips and sodas, a photo station with props and the best volunteer photographer, April, swag bags with goodies for both people and pups, and a doggie (temporary) tattoo artist from Country Clippers in Lockeford, CA. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Tickle Me Pink benefited the Rusty Fund at the shelter.
Seeing that the event day was so close to Halloween, we encouraged people and their pets to come in costume for a chance to win some great prizes...and they did not disappoint! Jazz the Pitbull (1st Place in the Pet Costume Contest) came as a Chick Magnet. Grommet dressed as The Cat in The Hat (2nd Place) while his sister Annie was a Sweet Witch. As for people in costumes, we had royalty, kitty cats, angels, and even couple dressed as a mermaid and merman (their dog Walter, was a shark). They took 1st Place inthe People Costume Contest.
The main focus of the day however, were the adoptable dogs that were on site from the Amador County Animal Control Shelter. Volunteers from the shelter brought out Roxy, Ruby and Toby to show them off with the hopes of them finding forever homes. We are very happy to announce that both Ruby and Toby have been adopted! In addition to the adoptable dogs, ACART (Amador County Animal Rescue Team) was onsite to pass our information on how to keep your pets safe during natural disasters along with other resources for pet safety.
At the end of the day, it was so rewarding to see the results of our hard work and planning. Everyone who attended had a great time tasting wine, enjoying food, having their pictures taken, going home with a bag full of goodies all while supporting the animals at the Amador County Animal Control Shelter. A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped put this together as well as to all of those who attended. We look forward to doing this again in 2018.
