Hi. My name is Vinnie. My owner couldn't keep me anymore because it was too hot in the trailer we lived in and there wasn't enough room for me to get enough exercise. Barb's neighbor came over this morning & told her about me, so she drove to De Soto to see me. I looked as handsome as I could when she got there and she took me home with her to see how I would do. So unless I really mess up overnight, I have a new home! So much room to run & play and good food to eat, too. She took me to the vet today & I have an ear infection. They cleaned them & gave me medicine to take home so I will get better. I also weight about 15-20 pounds too much (Barb thought it was all fur), so she will put me on a diet so I live a long life. My toenails were really long too, so they cut them while we were there. I will be a good watch dog. I bark when buggies come up the driveway & when I hear other dogs bark.

I'm sure you are wondering about Shep. He is still around but refuses to stay here. He won't budge on a leash and is very nervous inside. We talked about it & decided that we couldn't take him. I will try to help them find a new home for him, but I bet they keep him. Lizzie really likes him.
The chickens are growing bigger every day. Still no home for the two roosters though. We did add on to the chicken condo inside this weekend. We also worked on the outside coop. It is insulated now & the fascia boards are up.

Daughter Kristin is doing great pregnancy-wise and Jaelyn is getting to be such a big girl. I look forward to spending some time with them in a couple weeks.

I better get to bed. Who knows how the animals will get along during the night and then there is the 5am wake up from the roosters ...
