Cooties!!!!!!

Vinnie has them... cooties, that is. The weasels are sure of it. They are not mean to him (no name calling!), but they avoid him. They don't want to catch his little puppy cooties. If he comes close to them or, heaven forbid, actually make physical contact, they scramble to safety. Can you really blame them? Here's the poster boy for cooties:
One of the side effects of cooties is the ability to move at a high rate of speed - in order to infect other dogs, of course:
Now, I know this is just a temporary thing. It happens every time I have a new puppy. Puppies apparently carry a particularly deadly strain of cooties. This strain must only be contagious for a short period of time. I wondered who would be the first to "cave" to Vinnie's charm. He is really a sweet little guy and just wants someone to play with him. Today Robin decided that Vinnie was now "safe" and not potentially harmful to the general population: Vinnie was VERY happy to have a playmate.
Vinnie chased Robin all over the yard until Robin finally stood in the middle of the yard and Vinnie had the puppy "rips" in huge circles around him...
Now if he can just convince Frank and Betty to play...

I sure hope Robin has been vaccinated against the "cooties" as close as they were. What a good dog to tolerate the new kid on the block. Very cute.

Look, they have matching collars!!! Very very cute! They probably don't want him to 'slip them the tongue!! Nice work with that dark colored dog!!!
