Being a single parent and in the Military can cause a son some instabilities in their life. My answer was Diesel. Diesel and Mike are best friends and I can only imagine what they have gone through together on those vacant parent nights while lying in bed. My son graduates this year and I reflect back on his years and Diesel has been a great support- more than the dog will ever know. Although my son is now 17 and oblivious to a curfew, going to college, and his future, one thing will remain a constant for my son and that is the love and companionship of Diesel. Even though I scolded the dog just this morning I felt the urge to submit him for Post your Pet...love ya "Heavy D"!
