I’ve Had A Ball

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Diesel. This is a picture of me when I was just a young pup. It was taken a long time ago, 14 years to be exact. Wasn’t I cute? Back then I had boundless energy, but I loved to nap too.

I started out life in New Hampshire and life was good! I loved to go out and play with my dad…

I was about a year old when I got to go to the beach for the first time…

I have to say, I wasn’t a big fan of the salt water! Yuck! When I was a few years old, mom and dad got me a little brother. Look how sweet we were posing…

You must know, it’s only because mom was holding a cookie and we wanted it! My brother’s name was Turbo. Mom and dad thought they were so clever, now they had Turbo Diesel. Hahaha. Turbo didn’t hang around too long. But that was ok, I really liked being an only child!

When mom started her other blog, TouringNH I got to go to lots of places. It was my first experience in that thing the call Waldo.

As you can see, I took right to this camping life! They always took me swimming when we went camping. You know, swimming is one of my favorite things to do…

Laying on my couch is pretty good too…

But not near as good as getting on mom’s lap…

Mom loved making me sit nice and pose for her…

I loved winter in New Hampshire.

I would pester mom until she let me outside. I would pretend I needed to pee, but really I just wanted to eat some snow…

Because I’m a lab, I shed a lot! I mean a real lot! But mom helps me to my shedding outside. Can you tell I REALLY enjoy it?

When I was about 10 years, I got to go to Florida then on to Arizona. Before we left, mom bought these silly booties for me. She thought my feet would get hurt out in the desert, but I fooled her, I wouldn’t wear them…

Weren’t they silly looking? While we were in Arizona, I got to play with my grandpa’s dog Molly. She sure likes to play tug of war!

She sounds all vicious when she tugs, but it’s all an act…

Last year, mom and dad decided we were going to move into Waldo full time. They had a lot of things to do to the house before we could leave, here’s me helping…

Ok, maybe I wasn’t helping that much. At first I was a little sad we were leaving, but I got over it…

We spent some time in Florida, then we got to go to Texas. Woohoo, a new place to swim. Did I mention I love swimming?

And I got to go for rides on the golf cart…

So, now we are back in Florida. I’m getting old and tired. When we went to see the nice vet lady, she said I have bulging discs in my neck, I guess that explains why things hurt more than they used to. Getting old ain’t for sissies! Next week, mom and dad are going to start their trip to Alaska, I won’t be going with them. My story ends here, in Florida. But don’t be sad cause I’ve had a ball!

      1. I can’t even imagine–I know the day will come with our Lexie, but I just can’t think about it. You’re the third person I know who has lost their pet recently, and I seriously sat here in tears reading your post on Diesel. I’m so sorry.
