Effervescent, distinctive, flavorful… these are words that come to mind when sipping a glass of your favorite drink but they are also the best way to describe Giovanni, The Margarita King. Because Giovanni has created the world’s first premium, pre-made Margarita that is guaranteed to make every party a hit, it is not unusual to find him mixing it up with celebrities like Jessica Alba and Denise Richards. It is only fitting that he is the proud padre of Tequila, a rambunctious dingo shepherd whose outgoing and vivacious personality matches his own.
ABG: To get a night of wild partying started, does Tequila like to spice things up with a glass of Margarita King?
GTMK: Tequila doesn’t drink alcohol. It’s a very good drink but I wouldn’t recommend serving it to dogs. I think they should just stick with water!
ABG: When you and Tequila go out to parties and promotional events, which one of you gets the most attention?
GTMK: Tequila gets a lot of attention. I do a lot of promotional events and I can’t bring him to those, but sometimes, I bring him into the office and everyone just loves him. Dingo Shepherds are known for being work dogs, and are generally not very personable but Tequila is very friendly. He loves to jump around and play with everyone at work.
ABG: How does Tequila spend his Friday nights?
GTMK: He usually stays home on Friday nights while I go out to events. But during the weekdays, he loves to go to the park and just run. He likes to hang out with other people. He’s not exactly a ladies man. For some reason, he loves to be around males.
ABG: Doesn’t Tequila get jealous when you get to party with celebrities like Eva Longoria, Jamie Foxx, and Fergie?
GTMK: I wouldn’t say he gets jealous but he is always waiting at the door when I get home, ready to hear all of the juicy details!
ABG: Do you have any other pets?
GTMK: Eventually, I want another dog, preferably a poodle. I am not such a big guy and having a little dog would be cool. You can take small dogs everywhere.
ABG: Do you think it’s a good idea to let people bring their dogs to work?
GTMK: Yeah, I think it’s a great idea. I would love to bring Tequila with me everywhere but I travel a lot. She usually stays at home in Napa. The most important thing about dogs is that they read you better than most people do.
Like good food and good drinks, Giovanni and Tequila are a match made in heaven; Tequila is the Prince of Party Pooches while Giovanni is the King of fun and margaritas!
