Vinnie,The Dog from Kailua Who Inspired Poi Dog
When the Year of the Dog was approaching in 2005, Vinnie, our precious lab said that we ought to have a shampoo for dogs. And why not? The next year, 2006, was The Year of the Dog. 2006 was a Fire Dog Year: Fire Dogs are true leaders. Others enjoy being in the company of Fire Dogs. They’re sexually attractive, charismatic, vibrant and confident and they always prefer to be on the go.
We agreed, and Poi Dog Shampoo (Island Mango scented) was born in 2006, and introduced in the Year of the Dog. Just this month, we lost Vinnie to a year long battle with cancer, but right up to the end he was attractive, charismatic, vibrant, confident and always on the go. Here he is on the beach after a swim in the heavenly waters of Lanikai.
