Petty Officer Vince Hoenig never told his ex-wife, Cyndy, in all the years they were married. In fact, for 50 years, he did not discuss his Vietnam experiences, until writer James Woodward asked him for an interview.

FRIDAY’s Village Animal Shelter Rescue Dog of the Week: Seamus

Body

Seamus is a 40-pound Boxer mix with the cutest underbite. He is skinny and should be 55 pounds at 8-months-old.  
He is gentle and volunteers are teaching him how to play with toys. He loves other dogs and probably cats although untested.
Seamus is good on a leash. He wags his tail so much as he has "happy tail,” an injury from it coming in contact with the chain link runs.
He is up-to-date on vaccinations and will be neutered when adopted.  
We want him in a caring home because his disposition is mild mannered.
Call 922-6542 for more information.
