Vinnie is a Braxenburg pup, from a half-sister /half-brother breeding. {get the banjos out!}
(The Mom, PDQ was the RCC's #1 Rottweiler bitch  All-Breed '99), and the dad is(Donnie, the RCC's #1 Rottweiler Overall 2000).  This litter was born March 12, 2001 and included 6-boys.

Vinnie was my keeper...I had 2 favourite boys that I had my eye on - the Purple (Vinnie) boy and the Red (Phoenix) boy.  Vinnie's name was chosen because it sounded like a good 'Gangster' name, being that his sire is named 'Donnie Brasco'. 

I am firm believer in having fun with naming dogs...I don't have many litters, so I guess I would be rather be known for great dogs, with great names.


I had trouble deciding between the 2.  I called my Mentor, Larralyn McKay 0f Ambermark Dobermans to help me with a decision.  She too, was stuck between the 2-boys.

I don't think anyone regrets my ultimate decision...  :o)

At the time, I had a couple of people interested in adopting a pup for companionship, but I didn't want to give Vinnie up just yet.  I turned away a couple of people who were looking for a show pup, because it just didn't feel right...something to do with karma?

So, Vinnie stayed behind with his Mom, Dad, and Auntie KD- doing the opposite of what I advise new puppy homes to do.

Vinnie:

  1. was fed first {hey, he has a small belly}
  2. was spoiled rott'n
  3. was allowed to sleep on the bed and the couch
  4. was taught to speak, sit, wait, and words like car-ride, cottage, etc.
  5. was not leash-trained
  6. was not crate-trained
  7. was show trained
  8. was 90% house-broken
  9. had his own kiddie pool
Perhaps, I was trying to make Vinnie un-available for anyone...but the *anyone* came in the form of what I can term, karma...a purple collar, and a wonderful puppy home -the LeCoz home.

Andre and Lynn Le Coz and Max (a Braxenburg pup), who incidentally ALSO WORE Vinnie's purple collar in my litter of 2000, and is Vinnie's half-brother). 

Andre and Lynn had been able to spend time with the litter, while staying over for a local dog show - Lynn, immediately picked Vinnie out (he was 7-weeks old) of the litter, and let great big hints drop to Andre.  I kept my mouth shut.  :o)



When Vinnie was about 3-months old, I realized that I was only being selfish - and offered Vinnie to Andre and Lynn.  Lynn finally has *her* dog, her purple baby.  Thanks a million, guys.  Words cannot describe how pleased I am that Vinnie is in the best of hands.

Vinnie has now started puppy school...he was feeling left out, as his littermates, Atlas, Phoenix, and Noah - ironically, ALL attended the same class without anyone's prior knowledge, and have since graduated puppy class! That Karma again!

Apparently, the reunion was joyous - the 3 boys recognized each other on the first class.
