  1. Happy Takeover Tuesday! My name is Winslow (that’s my big sister and brother in the background). I haven't been a dog for very long, but I can tell you that Loudoun County is a GREAT place to be one. The fine folks here at @LoudounBiz invited me to show you around some of the great dog-related and dog-friendly businesses around the county, and it's going to be fun! So follow me around like a puppy dog today, and be sure to Like and Share my posts. And if you see me around town, please come up and say hello. Nothing gets my tail waggin’ faster than a good fawning! :)

  2. Okay I said today would be fun, but some stuff is less fun than others. I need my vaccinations so I thought I would tell you about Dr. Behm at Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates in Purcellville. She has been taking care of my family for almost 20 years, and while she won't come right out and say it, it's pretty obvious she thinks I am the most handsome of them all. She distracted me with something yummy and I never even noticed the shots. Thanks Dr. Behm! I'm glad now I can't get 'this temper' or Ray bees or any other kind of bees! BTW, I hope you never need it but Blue Ridge is open 24/7 for emergencies.

  3. I’m here at DogGone Natural in Leesburg with Jessica, who helped me pick out a comfy harness for hiking (not sure if you noticed but my legs are on the short side, so I’m always tripping over my leash!), and some delicious healthy treats. Jessica and the whole DogGone Natural team are trusted advisers in pet wellness, and can help you pick out the right food and snacks for your pet. And they also have another location in Ashburn!

  4. I'm told I am a huge Redskins fan, even though I was born in between seasons. Chris Cooley, Redskins Great, is also an accomplished artist and his work, along with pieces from other talented local artists, can be seen at the wonderful new location of The Cooley Gallery in Leesburg. And you are allowed to bring along well behaved dogs like me while you browse! If you’re really lucky (and height-challenged), the staff might just pick you up and show you around. The lovely Kelly gave me a tour, I think she likes me.

  5. Do you like fresh baked dog treats? I sure do!! My parents and vet all say I have a condition called “extremely food motivated.” I don’t know what that is, but if these treats are the cure, sign me up! I’m at Chase Your Tail Bakery in Leesburg, and that's Kara helping me pick out something tasty. The bakery is part of Dog Day Afternoon, which has doggy day care and obedience lessons too, even Puppy Kindergarten for little tykes like me! My big brother and sister both took classes here and they are really good dogs!

  7. I have lost count of the beautiful women that have held me today. This is Melia, owner of Ten Spot Kitchen, and she welcomes dogs to the patio on Tuesdays from 3-9 for Mutt-in Tuesdays with drink specials for people and dog friendliness for us four legged patrons. @tenspotkitchen  @dispatches_potomac #Winslove #Winslow2016 #ThisIsLoudoun #TakeoverTuesday #Loudoun #LoveLoudoun #dogfriendly @visitvirginia @visitloudoun

  8. Tongue Out Tuesday! I tried my hand as a pourer at Vanish Brewing in Lucketts, but I needed Sarah's help to reach the taps so my career was short lived. I did manage one cold glass of India Pale Lager for my Daddy, though, that's his favorite. It was about three quarters foam, does that sound about right? He told me it was "the thought that counts." Not sure what that means but he smiled big when he said it, so I'll take it. I always see dogs here at Vanish and they always have a welcoming bowl of water outside. Food on weekends, live music too. It's fun, we love it here!

  9. Well that's a long day for a guy whose legs are too small for his body. But my Daddy isn't the only one who's tired. As Takeover Tuesday comes to a close and I must hand the Instagram reins back over to @LoudounBiz, I want to thank Brian, Lois, Kellie and everyone at Loudoun Economic Development not just for this bit of fun we've had today, but for the wonderful work they do to make Loudoun a truly great place to do business, to shop, to dine, to have fun, to relax, and most importantly, to live. I've had a blast showing you some favorite places of mine and some spots I've never been before. 
One final thought. Businesses don't have to be dog friendly. But we are sure glad some of them are. So when I am lucky enough to tag along with my Dad, whether it's to a hardware store or a brewery or an art gallery, I try to always be on my best behavior. And when we leave, we always take a moment to thank people for allowing us to share these experiences together. It makes my Dad happy, and helps me be a better, more social dog. 
Follow my Dad at @dispatches_potomac to keep seeing pics of me as I grow up and have more adventures. And thank you for all the love today. It was a truly special day.
