Even as I begin to type I am in denial... this isn't the forum that I usually post in, and this makes it even more real.


I dont even know where to begin with a proper tribute. My sweet, sensitive, loving, smart, beautiful heart dog is gone and has left a hole that will never be completely filled.


Vinnie was the sweetest, most loving dog I have ever met. Although my husband never had a dog of his own and considered himself a cat person, it wasnt long before his heart was completely won over. Now, my husband will only consider a greyhound and is as shattered as I am by Vinnie's passing.

I miss my boy. I miss the way he would be completely content to just lay across from me in the living room and just look at me, happy just to watch me with his big, beautiful brown eyes. Vin loved to touch and be touched- and he knew that you had two hands and would let you know that petting him with one was NOT good enough, you had to use both. Vinnie also loved to travel and adored having a hotel bed all to himself to stretch out on. My boy loved pasta and could hear the opening of an egg carton from rooms away.

Watching this amazing animal age was so incredibly difficult. One of his back legs was causing more and more trouble and in the end, we suspected there was something evil in there, something that made it impossible to keep him comfortable and ended Tuesday with a final kiss goodbye. No more meds my handsome boy, no more stomach issues, no more trouble getting comfortable, no more pain.

The right words, the words to really convey how special he was, they just are impossible to find. Vinnie was absolute unconditional love, and I can only hope he knows how much I love and miss him.

Yes, he knows how much you love him and how much you miss him.

I had to make the same decision for my noble DesiRay just 2 weeks ago, and am still trying to figure out how to

keep on keepin on.


Happy Trails, Vinnie. Look up Desi over the bridge.......both of you just run & run & run, with no pain.......ever.

Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.
