Dog Lovers Story

Adventures with Vinnie

Handsome. Affectionate. In need of a forever home. And we were in need of another rescue dog. Thus began our Adventures with Vinnie.

From his first day to his last, the only predictable thing about Vinnie was his unpredictability. Loving and loyal, an escape artist to rival Houdini, and a genuinely comical fellow, his antics will make you laugh, give you a fright (but only for a moment), and melt your heart.

So join us, won’t you? With Vinnie, there’s never a dull moment!


Having retired to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, we decided to choose older shelter dogs for our family pets, dogs not easily placed because of their age. When an opportunity arose in March of 2012 to add a Lab/Dobie mix to our family, we didn’t hesitate. Nearly forty years of dog parenting had given us confidence that we could provide a safe, loving home for this senior pet fallen on hard times.

We hadn’t anticipated the likes of Vinnie.

Learn how that loving shelter dog with bright, longing eyes, led to adventures never expected the day we welcomed him into our lives!

This book contains twelve full-color photographs of Vinnie and his family.
