Everyone thinks their dog is special , every dog is special , and everyone is right .
But then there is Diesel , and well he beats them all 😉 I have plenty of dogs, and I love them all but diesel is well diesel
We bought diesel at 5 weeks old and collected him the day we could at 7 ish weeks old, he was tiny with eyes that looked right into you, that you could look into and fall in love, he came with a tin of pedigree chum and his kc papers and that’s it! I was thrilled
Diesel was a constant friend for destiny our home bred puppy when her litter mates left, he was also our very first male to be mated to destiny if he was ok health wise
Diesel was shown from 6 months old, won several classes, several best puppy in breed and came 2nd at crufts and has been a wonderful stud dog over the years
But now he is nearing 9 and I cant help but look back on all the things my “ son “ or “sunshine” or “diesel boy” has done
He has impregnanted bitches I didn’t want pregnant, he has laid with just about every poorly dog, he has watched his own puppies born and cleaned them up- with doras permission ( the only male ever to do this)
He watched over dora after she died while we waited for the undertakers, and wailed for a week in such a sad sound.
He sings love songs to every single bitch in season
He has created his very own diesel tunnels into areas he isn’t allowed – we know of course
He has shared Christmas dinner every year with a cracker hat
He has produced lots of stunning puppies
He has sat by my side while I pushed out a baby
He has visited dyeing people as a therapy dog
He has been attacked several times because hes an easy target
He has saved at least 3 dogs lives donating blood
He has alerted me to intruders , and made his way passed dexter to do so
He has helped people get over their fear of dogs
He has done a poo in the middle of a dog show while in the ring
He has protected my babies even though he doesn’t like babies really
He is a st Bernard that hates snow
He has escaped and tried to mate a neighbor’s in season jack Russel
He has made just about every single person who has met him fall in love with him
I don’t know what it is about him, but its something special , and while he is old grey and
happy I wanted to share this , rather than once he has gone, which I regularly think about.
Red diesel at ourfairview – what a dog!!!!!
