It feels like yesterday when my dog Diesel ran straight toward the street. I leaped from the couch and sprinted out the door to wave down the car coming down the hill. My little man bounced off the front bumper in a split second as the driver slammed on the brakes and skidded down the mountain. Diesel slowly got up, walked to the grass next to the pavement, and lay down. Shortly after, his back legs stopped working, and panic set in as he and I felt helpless, not knowing what to do. I rushed him to the vet, and the doctor confirmed that two of his discs had collapsed and were damaging the nerves that allowed him to walk or feel anything past his lower back. Witnessing him in so much pain was one of the most terrifying and helpless feelings.
I left Diesel overnight at the vet's so they could control his pain. I picked him up the next day to take him home, but he needed to be kept crated, except for bathroom breaks, which involved lifting and holding him up as he couldn't move. It was a very stressful time. He was on nine medications, so I needed to wake him up every few hours. I didn't get much sleep during the next 4-5 months as he slowly gained more movement in his back legs. He was a little fighter; the doctor previously said he had a slim chance of being able to walk again.
I have fond memories of sitting at my desk working, with my hand or foot in Diesel's crate while he rested. As he recovered, I started taking him on car rides and to local car meets, where he loved getting pets and attention. He would often accompany me to the garage, where I worked on my cars, and we would spend quality time together. Diesel was the driving force behind the Happy Endings brand, as he taught me that life is too short and that we should cherish every moment we have with those who bring us joy.
Diesel was always happy no matter what he went through. I will always miss him <3
