Van Gogh Update - Feb. 22



Vinnie sure took advantage of the one nice day that we've had here in the last few weeks! Not only did he take a nice stroller ride outside, but he actually got out of the stroller and enjoyed the fresh air for a while. He had such a good time, and practically went into sensory overload with all of the people, animals, sounds and smells to check out.

Quite a few of his friends came by to say hello to him, as usual, but the real excitement came when the peacock patrol strolled on over to check out Vinnie. If you remember, our peacocks acted as Vinnie's security last week and escorted him on one of his stroller rides. He was absolutely mesmerized by them and was thrilled to watch them again today. He also got to see a canine friend pass by while out on a walk. Creeko, a beautiful white pit mix, strolled by with his friend Dr. Nalven, and Vinnie and Creeko said their hello's to each other from a few feet away, and that was about it. Vinnie shows no fear of other dogs so far, just some interest and a little excitement.

Vinnie with another friend, Tiffany.

Vinnie didn't do much walking while outside as his hind legs are still quite painful for him due to the fracture, and his front legs are not that stable, due to the large wounds and swelling. He is healing so nicely, but Vinnie still has a long way to go. Vinnie sustained such serious injuries to his little body and it's amazing that in the last three weeks, he has made such progress.

If you missed Vinnie's original story, check it out here and follow his progress through the links at right.

Vinnie's head is healed up nicely in the spot where his ear used to be, but his legs still have lots of healing to do. We can't tell you how much we appreciate all that everyone has sent for Vinnie, including donations to our Res-Q Fund. Our Res-Q Fund is the fund that enables us to save the lives of animals like Vinnie. Without it, who know what would become of them. Please make a contribution to our Res-Q Fund and help Vinnie and the many others that need our care.

Thank you all again for your concern for our young Vinnie, and all of our wonderful animals. Stay tuned for more from the invincible Vinnie!
