I spent some time with Don Vincenzo today and as always he had me laughing from the go. We went to the paddock first where he played fetch...but Vinnie style. He had his customary two tennis balls in his mouth and, when I bounced the ball he would spin 360 degrees and instead of catching the ball he hit it with the balls already in his mouth 0002.gif]

On our walk he was great, passing other dogs well and just being a pleasant happy boy. He went in the water for a paddle and then just plonked himself into the mud. I told you he was a mini hippo love4.gif

Vinnie has his specific requirements, but if you can offer him a home that can cater to these, then please fill in that homing questionnaire thumbs.gif

I walked the wonderful and funny Vinnie this week.The cheeky boy is always looking for ways to extend his walks or play time as he gets so much pleasure from his time out in the fresh air.
So Vinnie being Vinnie he threw his balls down a steep embankment,( Thankfully no longer flooded with water ) looked my way and I knew where We were off too. I'm sure he's laughing as he does this as im flying down the bank with him .Then we have to climb out in front of loads of office workers !! He is fun , mischeavous, LOVES playing ball, easy to walk and a real character.
I adore my Vinnie time ! He will make someone very happy with those cheeky ways.

Me and Vinnie chops went for a walk on Saturday, he is such an fun character.... he has his routine to get ready:
Get two tennis balls and ensure safely in mouth - tick
Let the human put on the harness (just stand still) and check leads on - tick
Walk human to the rear kennel gate - tick
Water the first timber post (always) - tick

Its then 'Right I'm ready, lets amble along' ..... and off you go, no pulling, just amble. When we get to our normal sit area, he changes gear and jumps over the low fence and gallops over to the picnic bench area (dutiful sits are done here and tummy tickles given). Then it is run around the car park and he CAN go fast (a lot faster than me if we weren't attached) and he grins ear to ear with tennis ball and his little ears flapping.

The amazing thing is, if you want to just go back to walk speed he will slot straight back in, he does do a quick 'come on lets still run' but once he sees you are wanting to walk, he's straight back into happy amble.

Vinnie is a big fave at Guildford and we love having him stay but oh how we wish someone special would come forward for him.
This lad couldn’t be happier when he knows that he is leaving his kennel and getting out. He is so comical, quickly picking up his 2 balls before getting harnessed. It’s like someone quickly grabbing their hat and coat before leaving their house!
A sad fact though.......it is nearly Vinnie’s TWO YEAR anniversary of being with us at RR.
If you compare the first photo of him with RR and the most recent you will notice that our Vincenzo is going grey around the gills. A distinguished look for a gent maybe but it tells a sad story that our Vin is still waiting........
Lets try and get the lad out of our door, with his 2 balls obvs, before the anniversary actually arrives.

It was lovely to have a catch up with Vinnie today. We set off with his balls for an amble by the river and he was in a cheerful mood especially when we had a sit down and he got the opportunity for a really good roll. His balls were carefully deposited nearby whilst he had a mad moment rolling ecstatically on his back like a big puppy, both of us ended up sliding down the hill a little bit and getting rather muddy. Bless him. He was very good meeting two other dogs with no reaction at all. Gorgeous hunk. love4.gif He so deserves his own humans by now.

I love walking Vinnie as we always have adventures and true Vinnie style today he didn't disappoint .
So off we went on our hill climb taking in the beautiful surroundings Vincenzo loves this walk as it's different to the rest , with loyal tennis balls in his mouth we encounter two pheasants who decided to skip in from of Vinnie and tease him whilst running away. The tennis balls were thrown into the bushes and off he went down a very steep incline me and my slippy trainers hanging onto Vinnie as the game of chase the pheasants began .They stopped changed direction with Vinnie and I in hot pursuit .Thankfully at the bottom of the hill the pheasants vanished leaving Vinnie and I shattered with a long hill climb left to find his favourite tennis balls ....After much searching we returned , muddy laughing, Vinnie smiling and tired with two tennis balls in his mouth.
This is what walkers love about Vinnie , he's funny , fast , loves humans and enjoys every minute of his walks.
Vinnie is super special please forever home come soon our Vinnie deserves his sofa time and loving home x
