My girlfriend and I are moving in together next month and we both wanted a dog. I haven't had a dog since I was 13 years old and I lived in the country. But since moving away for college, I've always had apartments, dorms, or condos where dogs weren't allowed. Now that I'll be in my girlfriend's house, I can have a running buddy! Meet Vito. He's 10 months old, a purebred English Setter. English Setters are bred as hunting dogs, ideal pointers for pheasant and grouse. His energy is very high, he will definitely be able to keep up with me in my marathon training! Vito was part of a breeding program and didn't have some of the desired traits for his breed, so he needed to "disappear." He's now in the Witness Protection Program, thus the "Godfather II" inspired name. His original name is classified. Vito loves his mom's new big yard, and he loved the fresh March snow we just got! He tells us it's yummy, but cold on his nose! He's never seen "A Christmas Story" so we had to be careful about letting him lick the icicles off of my grill. This is Panther, and he's less than impressed. I imagine Ravage had that same look on his face when Soundwave brought home new tapes. Toby's also annoyed by this new development. He is refusing to finish preparing my taxes in protest. But Vito and I are still going to be good friends!
