Our dog Sadie had a great time performing for Homeward Bound, McMinnville’s own no-kill animal shelter. The concert/fundraiser/auction was held at the stunning Coeur de Terre Vineyard. The back up band included Mike Strickland on piano along with guest musicians Ellen Whyte and Tobaj.

The set list featured all animal songs including:

You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hound Dog
Rockin Robin
How Much is that doggy in the window?
Doggy Boogie
Homeward Bound
