   Leave a bone for Vinnie

Nicknames:
They call me stupid names like Vinners---which was then shortened to "Ners".... Vinster, Vinnie Boombatz, Shniggles, etc.

Quick Bio:
-purebred

Likes:
My Mom, burrowing under blankets, cheese, hugs, and Greenies.

Pet-Peeves:
Cold weather, rain, being forced to dress in humiliating ridiculous human-like clothing, having my teeth brushed.

Favorite Toy:
I enjoy chewing on the cat's neck at times, as well as this cool stuffed animal duck that my Mom bought me that quacks when I chew in the right areas...very satisfying.

Favorite Food:
Lately I've enjoyed snacking from the litterbox. MMM-mm.

Favorite Walk:
I like hanging out at the local dog park and making the other dogs chase me, but they can never catch me because they probably eat too much pizza.

Best Tricks:
Um, excuse me, but I don't "do tricks"...whatever.

Arrival Story:
My Mom researched many options and narrowed it down to my breeder in Missouri... that's where I was born. Mom saw photos of me and my brothers and sisters online and well, of course, she picked me because I'm prettier than the others. I'm not bragging...it's just a fact. Also, I had the best personality...my siblings were all introverts and I happen to be more outgoing and social. Women LOVE me (again, not bragging, I'm just simply the best). So, my breeder flew to NY for the Westminster Dog Show in February of 2002 with her show dog, and flew me out too when I was 4 months old. My Mom picked me up at the hotel and took me to my forever new home. Of course, I totally freaked for like a few days, but after that, I suppressed the extreme trauma of being ripped away from the only family I knew on a nice quiet farm in Missouri and thrown into the big city with a strange girl and her 2 bitchy cats. Since I've blocked that all out mentally, I am now a happy dog! :-D

Bio:
In my spare time, when I'm not volunteering with Meals on Wheels, or translating for the Italian Embassy, I've done some modeling...I was the cover model for the Spring 2003 cover of IG Times Magazine, and I posed for some paintings for a local NY artist.
