Thought we'd send another update your way.
Diesel (fka Rusty) just recently turned a year old (we think), and is doing awesome. He's gradually transitioning from goofy puppy and into a more mature and reliable member of the family (not that we have a problem with goofy).
His attitude is nothing short of amazing given his rocky start- his tail is always wagging and he's always happy.
It turns out that he's got an appreciation for music too- his most recent stunt was accompanying the five year old member of our family in a violin/doggie duet.
We cannot express how happy we are that he's a part of our family.
Thanks again for all you do!
