We got Diesel in September 2013 as a month's trial, but immediately knew that he had found his forever home! After viewing several other dogs, we knew straight away that Diesel was the one.

We already had a young Shepherd and upon the first meeting, they lay down together and instantly respected one another. Their friendship grew quickly and they were inseparable.

We thought we would have Diesel for a long time; however he went to the vet for what was thought to be a urine infection and at that time a lump was found. Diesel went for his operation to remove the lump however it was too late and he had a tumour on his spleen which had spread.

We had no idea he was so ill as he was still his happy content old self the morning he left for the vet. We had to make the heartbreaking decision that day to let him go.

Diesel was a character and a half and has calmed our other boy down to no end. He came to us when he was about 6 years old and he retired to his country home!

He loved to worship the sun and would be found lying out the back in the garden basking in the sun. He also enjoyed chasing reflections and shadows and it turned him into a big puppy.

When we got Diesel, he lacked body condition and soon began to put on good muscle tone and enjoyed long walks and bagged a few Munros with us. He has left a massive void and will be sadly missed.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
