Hi My name is Bethany McArthur. I am recently married. We have no human kids, just two 4 legged ones. Swiffer is a persian Himylian X. He is a year old very small grey and long haired. Diesel is our newest addition. He is a rescue dog. He is a great dane, rotti, australian shepard X. He was recently bitten by another resuce dog. As if this poor gentle giant hasn't suffered enough. He is with a loving family now.

I do have a few I will have to post them when I get upstairs on our computer. I am on my husbands lap top. He is huge. Approx 27-30 iches, he wouldn't stand still. His favourite spot to sit, on my lap. Only his head will fit. He is very sweet.

The funny thing about Swiffer's name is that he actually dusts for me. Under anything I can't reach and he can, it is quite funny. Swiffer is 1.2 years old and Diesel is 1.6 years old.

I just love close-up pics where I can see the eyes and Diesel has a such a "huggable" look in his.
I feel that most rescued animals can sense that they have been saved and become very dedicated to their owners.. I'll bet that Diesel becomes very protective of you.

Diesel is not so much protective as he is cuddly and aware of where I am at all times. Like today we were at my moms to introduce Diesel to my moms dog Dooley (Autralian cattle dog/ blue healer) and the dogs were in her backyard when diesel cut through my moms garden jumped on her window behind me to let me know where he was. He really is the cutes thing.
Swiffer is sort of the same he want to be where you are at all time aswell.

They co exsist in the house. Diesel has a cold right now and when he is feeling really bad I can tell because Swiffer is near him. They don't fight or anything. Not really interested in each other, except for diesel's tail Swiffer likes to play with it. Diesel doesn't mind.
