The Wonders Of Wine From Eastern Europe May 15th At Everything Wine Vancouver

6 May
RedWine

Many of us know wines from some of the well known wine making regions, France, California, Australia and our own Okanagan Valley.  Have you tried wines from Eastern Europe?  On Wednesday, May 15th Mark Konstantinov will take you on a tour of wines from a sampling of regions such as Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Maldova, Georgia and Hungary. These areas are rich with history, which Mark will touch on during the workshop. You will also have the opportunity to try a number of wines from these regions, we suspect ones you’ve likely never been exposed to.  The event takes place at the Everything Wine store located in River District in SE Vancouver. This is a beautiful store with an amazing selection with a great space for their tasting classes.  Cost of the workshop is $25.00. Class runs 6:30 to 8:00 pm. To register, call Everything Wine Vancouver T: 604.416.1672.

 

Rescue Me: Sweet Georgia Girl Would Love A FURever Home

30 Nov

georgiaWelcome to the next installment of Rescue Me in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA. Today we would like to re- introduce you to a lovely girl named Georgia who we featured earlier this year. She is a 2 year old Labrador Retriever crossed with Pit Bull Terrier. Georgia is a sweet, smart and energetic girl. She loves playing with other dogs and could easily live with a canine companion that has her rough and tumble style of play, but likely not cats.  She’s a little too into them. The girl has had a bit of a rough year though.  Being an energetic young dog with that lab energy, she tore her ACL. She has had surgery to repair it, so she spent a fair bit of time in foster on the mend, but is now fully recovered. Her foster family is now caring for a litter of kittens, so Georgia is now back to kennel life at the Vancouver SPCA.   Georgia would really love a FURever home to call her own where she gets to stay and make new friends.  The Vancouver SPCA thinks she is best suited for a house with a yard as well as an adult only home.  Ideally, Georgia needs her people to have bit of time and attention to give her initially while she settles in before being left home alone for periods of more than 3 – 4 hours.  She quite likes bully sticks and they keep her occupied and entertained whilst hanging out at the kennel. I’m sure if you brought her one, she’d be a friend for life.   If you think you could give this fire ball of energy a FURever home,  Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca

 

Rescue Me: Check Out These Foster Kids Looking For A New Home

24 Feb

GeorgiaWelcome to the next installment of Rescue Me in which we feature pets waiting for adoption at the Vancouver SPCA. Today we would like to introduce you to a couple of animals in foster care. First off, there is Georgia who is a 2 year old Labrador Retriever crossed with Pit Bull Terrier.  Georgia is a sweet, smart and energetic girl. She loves playing with other dogs and could easily live with a canine companion that has her rough and tumble style of play, but cats likely not.  She’s a little too into them. Georgia’s friends at the Vancouver SPCA think she is best suited for a house with a yard as well as an adult only home.  Ideally, Georgia needs people that will give her a fair bit of time and attention and initially shouldn’t be left home alone for more than 3-4 hours. This lovely girl recently tore her ACL and has had surgery to repair it, so needs a home with some TLC.  If you think you could give this fire ball of energy a forever home and some time to recuperate, the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca.

Next up, we’d like to introduce you to Ninja. Ninja is a 7 year old black short hair cross cat and her friends at the Vancouver SPCA would REALLY like you to meet this lovely girl. She is a favourite of the staff and volunteers at the SPCA.  This girl has a heart of gold and an over the top affectionate nature. They’d really like to see her find her forever home. As she’s an older black cat, she tends to be easily overlooked. This lovely girl was surrendered when her guardian could not find pet friendly housing. This home was already her second home, so her friends at the Vancouver SPCA are really hoping her next home will be her last. There are few things that Ninja loves more than people and water. She’s often found pawing in her water bowls and keeping people entertained with her antics. We hear that she takes breaks from her water pawing to enjoy a major cuddle session complete with head butts. One minor disclosure, the staff at the Vancouver SPCA have noticed that Ninja is not really into the other cats, they are recommending she be the only feline in the home.  She’s lived solely indoors and they feel it should remain that way. Common in older cats, Ninja is in the early stages of renal disease so regular vet check-ups are important. Ninja has so much love to offer and she’d really love a forever home. If you think you Ninjacould give this sweet girl a forever home, the Vancouver SPCA Shelter would love to hear from you. You can find them at 1205 East 7th Avenue or by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca.
