Sir Vincent, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sir Vincent
Age: Three weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: Miniature Donkey
Home: Godley, Texas, USA
   Vinnie is such an adorable little fellow and he adores me. He shows it with his every action when I am outside with him. At three weeks old he comes when I call his name, he gives me kisses, and he shows off for me. He is learning his first trick which is to "give me 5". This is same as a hand shake. We have been practicing for three days now and when I kneel in front of him he comes right up to my face and I can see his little body shift, getting ready for me to pick up his right front leg. It is so cute and he loves doing it. Our ultimate goal is for him to lift the leg on command. Vinnie is my first born since we started raising miniature donkeys last March, and he has proven over again that one of the pleasures of owning miniature donkeys is the love they give in return for being loved. He is a super pet!
