we had a very exciting meeting today- we found bernie's long lost sister shiraz!!! (they are wine twins...bernie's original name was cabernet- but he seemed more like a bernie to us.) we weren't sure if they would remember each other, it has been four years since they have been together. they didn't really show any signs of recognition but they got along fine- and they looked so cute together. shiraz is smaller than bernie and was a real herder (she's fast too). i don't know how anyone could have given these two away but we are sure glad they did! we hope to meet up again soon.
