Goodbye my Friend.

So big, but so gentle and cuddly sweet. I will miss you sitting on the floor in front of the couch, at Sophia's feet, with your head laying flat on the couch, watching her eat many a snack. I knew you wanted some, but you never took it.

When you did get something you shouldn't have in your mouth, I love how any of us could take it away from you (even Sophia) without a growl or a tug of war. You knew your place in this family, that's for sure.

Diesel. AKA Moose, Diesel Boy, My Big Handsome.

Oh my, how little and ADORABLE you were!

I'll miss you stealing bows off the tree at Christmas!

Maggie will miss her wrestling partner...

Ted will miss how you would wag your tail like crazy if he just LOOKED at you.

I will miss your lazy butt propped up on the couch.

I will NOT miss you chewing on my shoes...

Sophia will miss getting into mischief with you... (you sure smelled good that day!)

Sophia will miss your company out at the sandpile.
I will too - you were always watching over her.

So big and handsome!

I will miss you laying your big, warm neck over my feet on the end of the bed every night.

I will miss you following me downstairs every time I went down, no matter what.

I will miss sleeping so soundly when Ted was gone away, knowing you and Maggie made this the safest house in town.

I will miss your big head resting on the edge of the table, looking at the food.

You were so misunderstood. I'm so sorry Diesel.
We will miss you so much.
We love you.

I'm so sorry Christine.
It is obvious how much you love Diesel...you've apparently gone thru a bunch of junk lately.
Hope you're doin' alright.
My thoughts are with you!

We are so sorry to hear about Diesel...I was so hoping the next time I read it would turn out differently. They become such a part of our family. Prayers for you all. We love and miss you guys! Amy

I know this had to be so hard. I can hear it in your writing; I had to scroll down a bit to see what's going on. I hope things get better all the way around.

OMG, how my heart breakes for you. I really couldn't imagine, although we had a bit of a scare a week ago. Not the dogs fault...however she is getting older and does get spooked from time to time....
