Pulling up to Hermann Hill Vineyard
Inn & Spa, guests are greeted by two of Missouri’s greatest explorers,
Lewis & Clark: Canine Companions.
That’s right, Lewis & Clark, Hermann Hill’s very own chocolate labs,
will usually greet guests with their tongues out and their tails wagging, but
no worries, they’ll mind their manners as our visitors walk by, expecting no
more than a quick pat on the head. So
what’s a day like in the paws of these two best friends? It’s full of fun, adventure, and the
occasional dog treat.
take their post on the far end of the driveway, watching over the hilltop as
employees pull up. The day is already a
little brighter seeing these two bright eyed, fuzzy faces saying hello while
heading into work. They take their job
very seriously, being at complete attention as everyone walks by.
As the day goes on, and the sun rises
higher in the sky, they may decide to take a leave from the hot, black asphalt
and take a stroll through our Norton vineyards, relaxing in the shade of these
leafy vines. If given the opportunity to
watch these guys, you’ll notice they don’t take a step without the other following
close by. When it comes to Lewis and
Clark, no dog gets left behind.
opportunity to give treats to these furry friends, found in the refrigerator of
their room. Undivided attention will be
given to the holder of the treat as they’re told to sit, but once the tasty snack
is given, Lewis and Clark are soon off to their next exciting adventure.
Like any great explorer, Lewis and Clark
take the occasional detour, and stray from their intended path. If seen in lands unknown to these precocious pups,
just give us a call here at Hermann Hill Vineyard Inn & Spa so our friendly
watch dogs can return home, once again.
