Diesel continues to do well and every day his spirited nature gives us reason to laugh (and sometimes cry). Diesel attended the GRRoW Annual Meeting a couple weeks ago and met many more volunteers. He relished in the spotlight and showed off his best behavior. He was described as having a Zen-like quality about him. He has finished any recommended veterinary visits and is deemed healthy. He does have some moderate hip dysplasia that he is started on joint support supplements for but they did not recommend him for surgery. His (completely adorable) longer face comes with the downfall that he may be more prone to getting debris in the excess space between his third lid and globe. At this time, we only need to watch for debris and if necessary rinse his eyes out with saline solution so the debris doesn't cause inflammation. He is your typical Golden Retriever that only wants to be with people and be loved on.
