Our Dog BlueOne of my parents’ dogs is named Blue. He’s a border collie with blue merle hair color, hence his name. So naturally when they found a bottle of wine called Our Dog Blue, they had to purchase it and keep it, unopened, for display. Perhaps one of them can share how they found or were given the bottle. I was showing the Marga the bottle, which is blue glass, I noticed where the winery was located, and I had to take a picture of the bottle label and the dog in question.

I have a friend spending this Thanksgiving in Meadows of Dan, Virginia.

Blue, the dog.

    The wine was given to me by a friend named Jim Favell because he knew of my fondness for both dogs and wine. It has been gathering dust for almost 20 years, and I’m pretty sure it is no longer drinkable. It was not a factor when we named the dog eight years ago, although I was aware of it lurking in my wine rack. I had always like the name Blue, and his one blue eye and blue merle coloring cinched it.

    Border collies come in two models – prick ears and flop ears. Blue is a flop ear. That may be the only picture in existence of Blue with his ears up.

  • That government health warning on the label is pretty serious stuff. I think over here they usually just say “drink responsibly” or something.

  • I have an ex-colleague who just called his new baby daughter Blue. The previous daughter was called Bo.

  • I remember when the winery opened and when they started using the blue bottles. People would ask if they could have the empty bottles after festivals.

    I almost ended up working at CM.

    Blue, by the way, is a very, very handsome dog.
