Wellington.Dingo  A well travelled Australian Cattle Dog explores her new life in Wellington, NZ

Psssst! Psssst! It’s me, Pretentious Penelope. I’m applying to be the Fortune Teller at Miss Violet the Rinmistress’s Marvellous Menagerie! Goodness knows my psychic ability is better than Roger’s skills in managing our investment portfolio 😡🤬👊


Everyone should check out Miss Violet the Rinmistress’s amazing collection of performing beings @rinthegermanshepherd

As it’s Tightarse Tuesday, each of my fortune telling clients will receive a glass of complimentary Sangria from Decordi, Italy. Don’t tell them it’s only $6.99 NZD a bottle and 7% alcohol. No-one will be misbehaving later when Miss Violet’s performance begins under the Big Top! 😒

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! We have some public service announcements to make this week. Firstly, we regret to inform our dear Insta friends that the FEIJOA flavoured 42 Below NZ Vodka should be completely avoided. You all know Ma enjoys a cocktail or ten 😳 but recently she inadvertently bought the Feijoa Vodka instead of the regular version. No matter what she mixed it with, the smell and taste was utterly disagreeable. Utterly. It’s not like Ma to waste a drink but every cocktail made with Feijoa Vodka went down the sink. Even Ma’s home made Doris Plum and BlackBerry pudding couldn’t disguise the awful taste 😧😭😱


I’d also like to offer some advice to those puppers dissatisfied with the performance of their Media Managers. Close supervision of your Media Manager can significantly improve the quality of their work as demonstrated in the second photo. 😎😁🤓🧐🤨

I’m Pretentious Penelope with this week’s Tightarse Tuesday wine review. The 2016 Okiwi Bay Sauvignon Blanc from Nelson, NZ is a pleasant little drop - crisp, elegant, fresh and likely to be quite agreeable for Sav Blanc aficionados. $8.99 NZD. 12.5% alc. Contains sulphites. •

I was quite pleased with the servants for finding this little bargain wine so I permitted them a few days off. To my horror, my Instagram Account has fallen into a state of severe neglect whilst they’re away - the servants said they’re too busy and claimed glacial wifi speeds in Sydney, Australia prevent them from responding to posts - but my K9 network has spotted them cavorting and frolicking on a Sydney Beach today! 😡🤬👊 •

I apologise to all my Insta pals and hope to catch up with all your wonderful stories soon 😘😘😳

We are on location at the beautiful Millton Wine Estate in Gisborne, NZ for this week’s Thirsty Thursday. Gisborne is well renowned for their Chardonnay and Millton makes some of the best. Here we showcase their current range from the well priced Crazy By Nature 2016 Shotberry Chardonnay; the delicious organic Opou Chardonnay (a favourite of Ma’s) through to the premium Clos de Ste Anne Chardonnay. There is a similar range in Pinot Noir that is equally well regarded. On a magnificent sunny day our wine tasting was perfectly accompanied by cured meats, cheese and sourdough toast. Don’t miss this producer if you see their wines at your local! Prices range from $20 up to $70 NZD per bottle.

I’m outraged! Pretentious Penelope here for Tightarse Tuesday. Since last week’s wine selection met with my approval, the servants decided on another bargain rose, the St Clair 2015 Vicars Choice Sauvignon Blanc Rose Bright Light from NZ’s Marlborough Region. Well priced at $9.99 NZD. It’s quite a pleasant drop but it’s only 9.5% alc! Can these fools not read labels? What is the point of drinking it I ask you??? 😩😩🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ And it’s apparently ‘lighter in calories’ - are the servants trying to send me a subtle message? 😡🤬👊😳

We are on location for this week’s Thirsty Thursday - at the beautiful Craggy Range Wine Estate in Hawkes Bay, NZ. Firmly established as a premium NZ wine producer, the Estate, just outside of Havelock North, is a destination vineyard with the magnificent Te Mata Peak as a backdrop. Accommodation, wine tastings, light snacks and the well regarded Terroir restaurant adds to the experience. •

I sat on the grass while Ma and Pa did a wine tasting then enjoyed sunset dining at Terroir and a bottle of 2015 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Vineyard Pinot Noir from the Family Collection. $45 NZD. 13.5% alc. Lucky Pa kept his mitts on the wine list or Ma probably would have ordered the Aroha Pinot Noir from the Prestige Collection at $135 NZD!! 😳😬


The Te Muna Pinot Noir was a delicious, smooth, berry filled medium bodied mouthful of perfection. Ma loved it even though she’s not a big red drinker. A pre-dinner glass of Craggy Range Rose (sold out) was enjoyed whilst watching the hang gliders swirl around the Te Mata Peak before sunset. 🍷🍖


Completely understandable how Craggy Range wines sell out so quickly. If you see the Te Muna Pinot Noir, then grab it - although the 2015 is still available from the Craggy Range Cellar Door. •

A big shout out to Village Motel in Havelock North for such lovely dog friendly accommodation too! 🐶❤️

Pretentious Penelope here with this week’s Tightarse Tuesday. While that bloody Dingo was off gallivanting round the countryside with the servants, I had a good nosy round the pantry and discovered this - the 2016 First Pick Rose. Well one can be pleasantly surprised - this was quite passable and a bargain at $7.99 NZD. Delightful well chilled on a hot summer’s day. Strawberries, subtle floral notes and soft finish. 12.5% alc. Contains sulphites. Wine of Australia, bottled in Auckland, NZ. Go figure 🤷‍♀️


I’m off to the beach now 🧜‍♀️

I’ve been on a road trip checking out some wonderful wine estates in Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay, NZ. I’ve also been checking out high quality dog friendly places where pawrents and puppers can enjoy the finer things in life. Here I am at the wonderful Marina Restaurant in Gisborne where I was allowed to sit in the beautiful outside dining area next to the river and watch Ma and Pa eat delicious French food with matching wines! 🤔😒🙄. But it was soooo nice - everything was perfect. We can’t wait to return and highly recommend this venue to any Gisborne visitors. Thanks so much to the owners, lovely Caroline and Chef Supremo Steph for a memorable evening. And for the young guests who gave me a pat! 😘😘


Stay tuned friends for more wine reviews from these regions over the next few weeks. 😍

I was challenged by my friend @rinthegermanshepherd to the #screensaverchallenge , I challenge @lily.sparkle @khryunmorzhov @rusty_and_dvd @boxers.goofing.about @kira_the_kelpie and @peppermeszaros ....what’s yours?


I’m OFFENDED that it’s not a picture of me!!! But I was there when the photo was taken. Of course they were having a drink somewhere 😒


#wellingtondingo #screensaverchallenge

This week’s Thirsty Thursday is an homage to artisans using traditional methods to create exceptional products in their respective fields.


We’ve previously featured the No 1 Family Estate in the Marlborough Region near Blenheim, NZ. Their goal is to make Methode Traditionelle wines that rival the best in the world. They only make one type of wine and they make it exceptionally well - the rest of the world certainly agrees, judging by the long list of Trophies, Gold Medals and 5 Star Awards they’ve received. Today we present the (very chilled!) No 1 Family Estate No 1 Reserve ‘Methode Marlborough’ Blanc de Blancs. Limited edition. 1000 only. Long term aged on lees and released after several years. Intense flavour, elegance and style. Utterly superb. Another multiple Gold Medal winner. 12.5% alc. $95 NZD. Contains preservative (220). •

I was a lucky pupper and visited the Tasting Room at No 1 Family Estate a few weeks ago. swipe ⬅️ Gorgeous! 🤩


We have paired this amazing Methode Traditionelle wine with the superb artisan bread from Sam, the Shelly Bay Baker right here in Wellington. Sam uses his own mill to produce fresh stone ground flour to mix with natural ingredients to bake unique and flavourful breads traditionally. The result is an exceptional product, perfect with saucisson, cornichons and pate. Or anything really. The Shelly Bay Baker supplies the Commonsense Organics Stores in Wellington and sells directly at the Karori, Kelburn and Wellington Harbourside Markets. be quick as he sells out very fast! Hopefully he’ll get a storefront soon. We’ve got the Country Sourdough, Seed Loaf and my favourite, the baguette here as well as a photo of Sam selling his wares at the market ⬅️


And a photo of me outside the Shelly Bay Bakery on a Wellington summer day! •

Also a very big Happy Birthday to Remmstein Le Brun from the No 1 Family Estate 🥇

Well helllooooo! Pretentious Penelope is back with Tightarse Tuesday for 2018 and I’m simply glowing after my #furminator work. 🤫🤭😯


We’ve got another cheeky wine from the cuzzies across the ditch - fancy trying to flog cheap Sauvignon Blanc to the Kiwis! Well our friends at Old North Road Winery, Nuriootpa, South Australia are giving it a go with their 2016 Sauvignon Blanc. A rather unremarkable wine, not to my liking but of course Roger drank it 😒😳. 12% alc. Contains sulphites. $7.99 NZD. •

Daaahlings! A quick post from Pretentious Penelope. I’ve been MIA of late, somewhat uhhh, indisposed. Having a bit of ummm ‘work’ done 🤫. Blowing my coat. 😳🤭. Shedding for my ‘alfresco’ summer look 🤔😎💃🏄‍♀️


The servants have been vacuuming non-stop. They think they’ve hoovered up Donald Trump in the Dyson! This might be a good thing for world peace. What do you think? Swipe left ⬅️


One can’t do wine reviews looking like a Yeti! Thank goodness for Pierre Haddad’s amazing hair taming products. I’ll be back next week for sure with another wine review! •

We’ve gone crazy for Hans Herzog wines! They’re so good we couldn’t resist featuring another one for this week’s Thirsty Thursday!


I’m pleased to introduce the simply divine 2009 ‘Spirit of Marlborough’ Merlot Cabernet Franc - a seductive, smooth, mouth watering burst of ripe berries with a long finish. A perfect Bordeaux blend from a premiere NZ wine estate. Long fermentation before transfer to French barriques for 30 months of ageing. Unfined and unfiltered. 50% merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc. 14.5% alc. Approx $70 NZD. Contains sulphites.


Perfect with fillet steak. 🤤🤤

Happy New Year! We’ve got a very special Thirsty Thursday wine to share with you - it’s from the renowned Hans Herzog Wine Estate in Blenheim, NZ. Ma and Pa attended the Estate’s New Year’s Eve dinner - it was 5 courses of gastronomy heaven with matching wines - so perfect we all went back for lunch the next day! That’s right, even the Dingo got to visit! We loved everything about Hans Herzog’s Estate - the food, the exquisite wines and the beautiful grounds. Have a look at these pictures!


Anyway, Ma bought a truckload of their wines - she especially liked the Hans Herzog 2016 Pinot Gris - dry and complex yet bursting with fruit flavours. Extraordinary depth and body. Beautiful rose gold colour. 14% alc. $40+ NZD. Organic and biodynamic. No fining. Contains sulphites.


Hans and Therese Herzog are the stewards of their artisan wine estate acclaimed throughout the world for growing handcrafted ‘old world’ style wines from their exceptional ‘Grand Cru-like’ organic vineyard. We can’t wait to return for another visit!


We paired our Pinot Gris with Ma’s BBQ chicken made on the Weber. 🤩🤩🤤🤤 I’m a happy pupper 😁

Zzzzzzz 😴😴😴 Oh sorry, I was just dreaming about the Xmas leftovers! Maybe a fettucine carbonara accompanied by a soft medium bodied Italian red would use up the ham? Welcome to Thirsty Thursday dear Insta pals. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and no-one was on Santa’s naughty list.


This week’s wine is the 2016 MontAlbano Nero D’Avola from Sicily. Organic. 13% alc. Contains sulphites. Terrific value at around $16 NZD. Also suitable for quaffing. Went well with the fettucine and the homemade garlic bread that Pa hoovered up before we could include it in my photo shoot! 😡


My mandatory treat payment upon completion of the photo shoot was very slow this evening - I had to get up right close and personal to Ma and give her my relentless heeler stare so she’d get it organised. Honestly I think Pretentious Penelope has a point about the standard of home help these days.

After the gastronomic excesses of Christmas Day, it’s almost a relief to wake up to Tightarse Tuesday. Pretentious Penelope here. I told the servants that I didn’t care it was a Public Holiday today - I demanded they organise my wine review. •

But they got their revenge with this wine. Blerk 🤢 it’s the 2017 Riverstone Sauvignon Blanc from ummm somewhere unspecified in New Zealand. Bottled by Riverstone Vineyards, Auckland aka Villa Maria 🤷‍♀️. Source not specified. 🤔 A classic Sauvignon Blanc, zesty, fresh and crisp and not to my liking. 12.5% alc. Preservative 220. $8.99 NZD. •

Of course Roger drank it. 🤭🤫😖🤪

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our lovely Instagram friends. Thank you for all the laughs, comments and captions and thanks for sharing your lives with us. •

I’m also very proud that I’ve got HEAPS more Christmas Cards and gifts than any other household member. Woo hoo!

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! Because it’s a crazy time of the year, we’ve done a crazy wine and food pairing this week. In recognition of the burgeoning popularity of Rose, we are presenting the Ferraton Pere & Fils 2016 Samorens Rose, Cotes du Rhine appellation, France. 13.5% alc. Preservative 220. Around $18 NZD. A lovely refreshing, quite dry and not too sweet acidic balance in this Rose - which was a suitable counterbalance to the thick, spicy peanut and coconut flavour of the Satay Chicken Curry and Rice!! Hmmmm. 🤭😋🤤🤯. And then Pa added banana to his 😱😨🤯. Good heavens. 🤷‍♀️

Hello it’s Pretentious Penelope with another new ‘summer look’. I don’t mind sharing with my dahhhling friends that harsh words have been exchanged with the servants over their neglect of duties.....particularly concerning my evening aperitif! I’m pleased to report they’ve come up with an outstanding drop for this week’s Tightarse Tuesday! Nothing like the prospect of getting fired before Christmas to get motivated! The Altana Di Vico Rosso Salento is a soft, medium bodied intense red bottled in Fossalta Di Piave, Venice Province, Italy. Delicious. Bargain priced at $10.50 NZD - I deducted 50 cents from the servant’s pay for exceeding the Tightarse Tuesday budget limit of $10 per bottle! 12% alc. Contains sulphites.

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! We’ve got another very special NZ wine this week from North Canterbury, NZ - the 2016 Black Estate Home Chardonnay. Stocks are nearly sold out. This wine is made traditionally, using organic and biodynamic hand picked grapes which are whole bunch pressed. Vineyard derived yeast is used in 100% barrel fermentation and maturation. The wine is unfined and presents as cloudy, reflecting the winemaker’s use of traditional, even ancient techniques. The wine is totally delicious, with a well rounded full palate. 13.5% alc. $44 NZD. Contains sulphites. •

This week’s wine is matched with roasted chicken 😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋 and an avocado salad. •

Hellooooo! Hellooooo! Is there anyone home? Pretentious Penelope here, completely abandoned by the servants and trying to post this week’s Tightarse Tuesday review. Better late than never. 😤We have an intriguing wine - the 2017 Gunn Estate Pinot Gris. Intriguing because the product is described as ‘Wine of Australia. Produced and bottled by Gunn Estate Winery, Hastings, NZ’ !!! Source not specified. So at last do we have a joint Aussie/NZ (or OzKi) wine venture? It’s a pity then that this drop is rather mediocre - light, fruity, sweet and soft on the palate, not to my taste at all 😖but Roger quaffed the whole bottle as he’s not fussy 😒. Could be quite palatable super chilled on a hot day, paired with spicy Asian dishes. 12% alc. Contains sulphites. $7.99 NZD.


Those servants better turn up for work soon or it’s ☠️ for them.

Ellie here reporting on the latest developments in the freedom of expression case involving @lily.sparkle . As a member of Lily’s legal team courtesy of Bruno Esq, Attorney at Paw @bruno_and_gracie, I interviewed Lily at length today. Lily’s use of mixed media in the creation of her art (crayons, cardboard, canvas teepee and ummm poo) was observed and whilst a controversial approach I had no doubt I was in the presence of an artistic genius. Indeed, I also observed that Lily was most generous in sharing her artistic talents with the smaller members of her household and took a strong collaborative approach in the development of their artistic skills. I consider the addition of Lily’s own personal touch to their artwork elevated the pieces to masterpieces, particularly given the added sensory impact of odour. I enclose evidence of 1. The artist in residence 2. & 3. The artist herself at work 4. The artist using meditative techniques to visualise the development of new pieces


Disclaimer: whilst my involvement in Lily’s case is pro-bone, I did accept a gift from her of a tuggy toy with ball. I can put it on the office assets register if you deem fit, Bruno Sir. I believe we have a very strong defence case and I understand the other side is willing to withdraw their allegations.
