Default Re: My Monster Vinny

Hi All...
I'm having a really hard time finding the words to talk about Vinny. One week ago, we decided it was time to let him go when he refused to eat. On Friday, Vinny made left this world, surrounded by his family and loving friends. You know your pup has made an impact on others when three ladies from the vet were crying right along with us.

I want to thank all of you that helped us through those early days. I know we wouldn't have made it five years without you. I know there is so much more to say, but my heart is broken and the words aren't coming as easily as the tears. I'll try again in a few days.

Mel and her Angel Vinny

Mel... So sorry to read this about your monster Vinny. We both started our diabetic journey in 2013 and loved following Vinnyís story.

He was one of those once in a lifetime dogs.

Mike and Lily.

Mel... I'm so very sorry to hear that Vinny has passed. He was such a beautiful boy... loved the photo of him with his fancy nails... and you all got through so many challenges. I know how hard it is to finally have to give up and let go. So sad...

Sending a kiss and whatever Vinny's favorite toy or treat was to him and a big hug to you. You know we all understand.

Iím so sorry Mel. I remember when you and Vinny started on the forum. We all were so lost back then dealing with all this and now we are once again lost NOT dealing with it 😢. Iím right there with you, as vinny and tig are. We have to believe they are healthy, happy and running in the sunshine where one day we will see them again. My thoughts are with you my friend

I am so very sorry for the loss of your Vinny. I know how hard it is. It's been 5 months since my Gus has been an angel. I still come here from time to time to read and see how all the other sugar babies are doing. Hugs to you. I know your pain all too well and still struggle.


Run free, sweet Vinny.

I havenít been on in a while and I am so bummed to read this, Mel. I know it is tough but when it is time, you know it! Vinny was a real trooper and you guys did great with him. The pain is so hard at first but gets easier. I can finally think about and talk about Maggie without crying. Wishing you peace and comfort!
