Vinnie is one happy boy today! He had a great day hanging out with lots of friends and even had some visitors too. Vinnie is slowly staking claim to several spots in our administrative offices. His latest "Vinnie Spot" is on our conference room, where he absolutely loves to hang out not only because his friend Barkless is in there to keep him company, but also because when one of his many best buddies, John (Popcorn Park Director), comes in to work, he gets plenty of attention from him, too. No matter what you're working on, when Vinnie appears on a bed in your office, you just have to mush around with him for a while!
Vinnie recovered from his neutering yesterday just fine, and was back in great spirits today. A few people questioned if this was the right thing to do for Vinnie, and thought that he was still too fragile to undergo this procedure. Our veterinarian, Dr. Baris, has been the doctor that has literally brought young Vinnie back to life. It is due to her outstanding care and treatment that Vinnie is doing as well as he is today, so if Dr. Baris feels it's ok to neuter Vinnie, then it's certainly ok to neuter Vinnie. He also needed sedation for some new xrays of his hind legs, which we were able to get. Vinnie is still unstable on his hind legs, so further evaluation of them will be necessary. We should know more in the next couple of weeks.
Vinnie continues to love life and everyone in it, and heals more and more each day. The cards, letters, and gifts that we receive for Vinnie are so touching, and we just can't thank you enough. Vinnie continues to need long term care for his medical conditions so your well wishes are certainly appreciated, and your donations to our Res-Q Fund are as well. If you would like to contribute to our Res-Q Fund, you can donate here.
Thank you all again, as always, for your continued support of little Vinnie, and all of our wonderful animals. Stay tuned for more on the invincible Vinnie coming soon. If you have missed any of our updates or the original story on Vinnie, just check any of the links at the right.
