Balic’ Winery: Mays Landing, NJ

Balic’ Winery makes over 27 award-winning wines!

Not only did we love their wines (we bought a case!), they had a chocolate fountain – YUM!

Balic’ also had a quite outdoor sitting area:

Best of all, they are dog friendly, and have their own vineyard dog, Mariah , who Margarita quickly made friends with!

We will definitely be adding this winery to our “visit regularly” list!


Three 3’s Brewing Company: Hammonton, NJ

Hammonton, NJ has several wineries that we have visited, but we had never tried a Hammonton brewery.  We loved the beer and the atmosphere here!

Tasting room:

This brewery is a small craft brewery in downtown Hammonton,  NJ. Their focus is brewing IPA’s and Saison style beers, which are available in their tasting room and distributed all over NJ.

The beer selections in our tasting were delicious, and the brewery was extremely dog friendly!

Rita’s First Shopping Experience at Lowe’s Home Improvement

Rita came along with us to Lowe’s Home Improvement to help pick out our porch floor stain!

Come on, Dad – you are taking too long!

My tail points to English Chestnut… trust me on this one!

Yup – we have everything, Dad! Now let’s go home and play fetch!

Margarita was a great shopper!

*Please note- not all Lowe’s Home Improvement stores are dog friendly.  The company leaves it to the store manager’s decision, so be sure to call ahead if you plan to take your pup along with you to shop in a Lowe’s store.

Flying Fish Brewing Company: Somerdale, NJ

We had a blast here enjoying some very tasty beer selections, and meeting other people and their dogs! A German Shorthaired Pointer came in and immediately warmed right up to Margarita!


We enjoyed doing a beer tasting here – so many great choices!


Margarita wanted to know why SHE wasn’t offered a tasting! ff5
