We also want to share a story about a heroic rescue that happened on Tuesday… “a wonderful guest saved the day for ‘Vinny the Min Pin’. Vinny made a daring escape by slipping his collar and took off at full speed… Henry D’Alessandro immediately saw the situation and dashed around the tennis court in pursuit! He must have dog whispering skills as no one else could get him to come near them until Henry walked towards him, Vinny went into his down position and let Henry pick him up! Thank you a million times over Henry! I was so very scared for him!” ~ Vinny’s owner!
