Dogs & Wine: Connected at the Label

After entering the recent contest to have my dog art chosen as the label for Mutt Lynch Winery, I started wondering whether other wineries around the country, and around the world, have the same fixation with dogs that the folks at Mutt Lynch do. Has that love of all things canine also compelled other wineries to put pictures of dogs - photos or other art - on the labels of their wines?  Is the art any good?

A very brief and not-at-all comprehensive search of the internet turned up some interesting artwork on the bottles.  Readers should note that I usually use the label as my primary criterion for purchasing a bottle of vino,  and am not endorsing the taste of any of the following wines. They sure are nice to look at, though.

The sampling of faces below are part of the Vicktory Dog Wine Collection.  Featured on the labels are individual portraits of all 22 dogs rescued from Michael Vick's dog-fighting operation.  

Do you know of any other good dog wine labels out there? Please let me know.
