<<Has anyone heard how Rick is doing and especially his little rescue male. I am interested and boy do I miss those good ol Rick tails (tales). Thanks Pam N Friends>>

I was waiting for Michele Basye who handled the rescue to write it up but she just bought a new house and asked to come off the list for awhile. She placed Viney Tuesday with a lovely couple in Quantico VA with two children. They had been looking for awhile having been told several years back to give up their Min Pin because the baby was allergic...only to find out later that that was not true.
They had looked at some other rescues but they didn't seem to get along with the children while Viney went right up to them tail wagging furiously and even won over the husband in very short order.
Michele said that Rick had tears in his eyes when Viney had left and that he has spent $100 on vet expenses which he donated. I sent him a snail mail thank you note and said we missed him.

VInnie is great! He slept in every bed last night. He gets along well with the kids. Lvoes to go for walks. He is with someone almost at all times. He'll follow us around which is no problem. I kissed him and he looked at me like "wow". He did mark his territory, but he's been doing fine ever since. He's a little bucket of love. Thank you so much!

ps tell Rick thank you for taking such good care of him!>>

Hi Everyone! We just wanted to let you know how Vinny is doing. We adopted Vinny about 3 weeks ago. He had being residing with Rick and Michele Bayse met us in the Fredericksburg, VA area so that we could meet him. Vinny is the BEST little guy. Last night I was up doing some work and late and when I went to bed there was my Ron, Dakotah, Vinny and DArr (my husband, 3 yr old daughter, Vinny and 6 yr old son) all asleep and snuggled together. All of them had their heads of pillows. I didn't have a camera handy but it would have been a great picture. We just love him so much! He's really made this home. I found a little wall hanging and it said "if you want the best seat in the house then move the dog." It's so true. Vinny finds the most comfortable seat and takes long naps. He loves to go outside and watch us and play. We go for long walks together. When I'm working in my office, he will come down and sit in the other office chair and just watch me and then nap. He's great. We are so happy that he has come to live with us and they we could provide a permanent home for him.

Hi. I just wanted to update everyone on Vinny. He has been quite the character and is now known by my hubby as the "old man". We have had several other rescues come to visit and he has been very cordial. We are getting ready to adopt another rescue, Jesse. Jesse was an owner give up and came to stay and became attached to all of us including Vinny. When Jesse went to the vet to be neutered, Vinny was very upset. They are brothers in every sense of the word. Rick came to visit to pick up two other rescues, Jack and Bean, who were staying with him for a few weeks and Vinny was so excited to see Rick. He does not forget his friends and who has given him love and attention.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to write a short note to say that "the old man" is doing great. He is spoiled rotten. He loves to lounge on the bed. We went to visit my dad who has a big fenced in yard and he went crazy running around the yard. He's a house dog :) in every sense of the word but had a great time running 1/2 acre of land except he couldn't understand why there was a fence there. - Peggy
