Diesel and I 1995

In the beginning

I,m sure  Diesel  would  like  to be  remembered  as  a  K9  braveheart....the  amount  of  places  we  visited  over  the  years......be  it  the  trossachs........loch awe....isle  of  skye....isle of  seil....Glencoe  and  Glen etive..Glen Shiel   and  the   places  Torridan .Ardnamuchan, Caithness ..Sutherland  John O  groats  and    not  forgetting   umpteen trips  back and  forth  to Fife....and many  many  more glens ....where  I,d  pull the  van over  and   " right girlie  this  will  do for the  night "  and   thats where  we,d  crash for the night....usually  close  to a  burn  , so we  always  had  running  water....and  the  morning  views....but  we  always  returned  to loch awe............mostly  for  the  solitude and  peacefulness....I  will  catch  her  up.............maybe  in a  glen...that  we  used  to frequent....or  a  lochside.......I  know  she  is  at  peace  now......
Diesel  the  Alsatian

I   have  many  photos  of  Diesel  .....and   on many  pc,s  so it  will  take  time  to sift  through  them......I  must  admit  it  brings  back many  good and  unforgetfull  memories just  finding  photos  I,d  forgotten I,d taken....she  meant  the  world to me ..getting  used  to the  silence  is  the  hardest  part.....

You see  we  were  posh  tramps  taking  coal  and   bags  of  logs  before  we  set  off......as  Diesel  got  older , I  felt  camping  out  was taking  its  toll...it  was  then I  bought  the  LDV  so  we,d  be  off  the  damp ground  and  no need  to pitch  a  tent.....such  small luxuries  made  all  the  difference.

She was always alert listening to the sounds of nature

This  was  one  of  my  earliest photos  of  Diesel probably  taken  1999/2000  was  when I  lived  in Rhu.
She  really was  a  lovely  dog  ,  with  a  great temprement.....

Taken at Helensburgh Pond

As   you   can probably  see  I  really  worshipped  the ground  this  dog  walked....time  is  a  great  healer  , but  when a  dog   can inspire  you  to stay  off  alcohol.......then that  dog  is  special....I  havent  had  a  drink  for  over  11  years  now......and  still  not  having  the  urge.......if  I  did  I  would be  letting  Diesel  down and  there  is  no way that  is  happening ......Alexander

It   is  over  a week   .....and  yet  she  is  still  bringing  a  smile  to my  face all these  photos  of  such  good  times......that  is  how  I  will  remember  Diesel  13  years  of  faithfullness  never  once  let  me down..... a  GSD  of  great  porportion....R.I.P.   girlie.......

Helensburgh Pond

Diesel  a  dog  who loved  a  stick..........never  knew  what  she  got  out  of  it..but  she  would  find  the  same  stick day after  day....sometimes  carrying  them all the  way  home  to the  backdoor

Without  Diesel  in the  house............there  is  no home...........no reason  for  doing  anything  other  than to  keep oneself  occupied  and  dull the  pain  of  losing  one  fo the  best  friends  I  have  ever  had.............Diesel........
 
The   walks  seem to be  times  when your  talking  to the  dog  as  if  she  is  still walking  by  your  side........at night  your  sure  you  can hear  her  patrolling  the  downstairs..its  only  when you  come  down the  stairs  in the  morning ....... ...you  realise once  more  she  has  gone..........  then  you  look at   the  framed  photo s  and  realise  she  is  still a  very  big  part  of  your  day......happy  memories.....

At the back gate watching me load the van

I   guess  Im  not  really  looking  forward  to summer..especially out  in the  garden.....she  spent   lots  of  days  here  ..sitting  on the  step or  pavement  watching  me  loading  the  van up with  supplies ,for    few  days  away.....damn as  soon as  she  seen the  flask getting  filled  she  was like  a  cat  on a  hot  tin roof...............the  only  time  I  ever  heard  Diesel whimper  was  when  she  was  waiting  to get  away on our  travels...how  times  are  different!!!!
