Now happy, this Pug has not been without his pangs. “After being home only a few days he became very ill. Contracting pneumonia (from the big box store from which he was adopted) he spent time in an incubator connected to IVs, very near death… He started getting better and was released only to be home for one day and then had trouble breathing.” After another stay at a different animal hospital, which administered more medicine, he pulled out of it and bit off his IV. He was ready to go home!! “He became quite the little mascot of the employees there.”
“He’s now a healthy dog and full of energy. He is very attached to his sister Kyley, a Keeshond, and likes to pick on her. He gets his way with his cute little face and comedian like personality. He loves his stuffed animals and snuggling next to his mom on the couch!” Not sure how much he loves his Halloween costumes, though. Wink!
“His name definitely fits him as diesels are strong and will run forever!!”
Here, Gadora renders the pug’s mug in watercolor, applying layers of paint on top of Diesel’s computer-manipulated and printed photo.
Diesel’s Animal Print is traveling all the way to Illinois for the holidays. We, especially me, can’t wait to hear how his folks like his watercolor portrait.
