Vinnie: Rest In Peace

Sorry, rabbit. Vinnie was definitely loved.

Sorry, SR.

So sorry, SR. Thank you for sharing Vinnie with us.

Thank you for including us in your lives, SillyRabbit. I'm sad that his passing was so unexpected, though there's also comfort in the details and knowing how much time you had together. All the hugs!

So sorry to hear about your family member passing away. Vinnie will always be a part of the GWJ hivemind's memories.

Oh, that's truly awful, SillyRabbit. He was really a presence here without ever knowing it. Felt like we kinda knew him.

He probably couldn't have had a much better life as dogs go, but it's never long enough.

Hey SR, I noticed your post about Vinnie this morning.

I have read through sooooo many pages about your awesome dog, and the immensely stressful and insane neighbor situation.

This puppo had an amazing life, and overcame an immense challenge - right there with you. I shall hug my aging girl an extra time for Vinnie, and know you are both in my thoughts today.

rest in pupperoni, vinnie

Lost it when I got to the Gloria Gaynor Vinnie.

So sorry for your lost, but glad Vinnie got so many great years with you all, and thankful for the portion of that you shared with us.

Godspeed, Vinnie.

So sorry for your loss SR. Vinny had a great life and passed peacefully in his home, which by all accounts was a haven of love and comfort. We should all be so fortunate.

Vinnie will be part of many of our lives, even if we never actually met him. I can say for myself, he was an inspiration for me to get a dog of my own. I have been doing a Star Trek marathon and I just saw an episode with an amazing quote that applies here.

"Death is that state in which one exists only in the memory of others. Which is why it is not an end. No goodbyes. Just good memories." - Natasha Yar

I'm sorry for your loss.

It's hard to imagine receiving more love during our brief flash of existence. Vinnie was one lucky dog. I remember the neighbor from hell story evolving when we got our shelter dog Nola, so this thread and Vinnie will always hold a special place in my heart - like I will always hear Vinnie with a faux Italian accent in my head.

Sorry for your loss, SR. He was loved by more people than he knew existed, and by you most of all. Sad that you lost, him, but it's good that it was quick and painless.

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss.

Sorry for your loss SR. I’m sure you gave him a great life. Thanks for your shares.

Well damn. Sorry SR. Happy to hear his last moments were peaceful.

From your description, it sounds like what Cleo had. I'm so sorry for your loss. We love them so much and but they can only be with us for such a short time.

Oh man, so sorry to hear about Vinnie.

Rip Vinnie, you good ol' pup.

Sorry to hear of your loss, SR. Loss of a beloved pet is never easy and in some ways perhaps a relief it wasn't a prolonged suffering. I'm still not quite over the loss of two childhood dogs which hit me over 10 years ago, we had to watch the vet put them down which was heartbreaking. I fear the pain of that loss and it probably explains why there's only been goldfish in the home ever since hope also the other pets are doing okay.

Aww, drat. Sorry SillyRabbit.

Sorry for your loss SillyRabbit he was the bestest boy

Thank you all so much.

I found this thread after a couple year hiatus. I'm so sorry your pupper passed. I will miss him. Since your fence drama I have lost 2 puppers and 1 kitter. They take a piece of you and leave a piece of them in their place. Don't ever forget their story and they will never be taken from you. Be well my friend and rest in power Vinnie.
