Hi there - it's been a while since Red Lake Rosie's Rescue had an update on Diesel. I'll try to describe how he has matured. Well, he's BIG. And wherever we are, he never fails to draw praise for his handsome physique and good nature.
DIESEL (Check out his blog post as a pup named RUSTY)He has retained that "worried" expression between his upstanding ears, has light eyes in a dark mask, and a deep muzzle. There is a memory of German Shepherd in those ears and in the structure of his head, but everywhere else he is Basic Hound. He has built himself a deep, powerful chest and leans forward over his front toes. He is wasp-waisted with strong, correct back legs. His tail is gay or "ring," and curls happily over his back.
DIESEL AND HIS GSD BUDDYDiesel loves to run (sometimes away from me) and can run flat out between 15 and 20 mph. Really. He looks like a Basenji on steroids but, more than anything, Diesel resembles carvings and paintings from ancient Egypt.
HELPINGWhen I fell outside early this morning, coming down hard and twisting my ankle, Diesel stopped scenting and came to my side. He showed as much concern as caninely possible. He stood next to me while I got to my knees and then to my feet and I deeply appreciated his presence. It was dark out there and he comforted me.
DOGGIE PALSPeople tell us how lucky we are in our adoption. I always agree.
