Kamdyn Wornell and Diesel.

This story is about Kamdyn Wornell and his best friend, Diesel.

They live in Clovis. Kamdyn is 4, Diesel turns 2 in March.

Diesel was just a couple of days old when he was introduced to Kamdyn. They soon shared a bedroom together.

When Diesel was about 6 months old, he got pretty sick. The vet had to do emergency surgery to remove a foreign object from his stomach - probably something he chewed on.

Diesel was so sick doctors didn't think he would make it.

Kamdyn, 3 at the time, didn't quite understand what was happening. But we witnessed Kamdyn saying a prayer for this dog with whom he shared a room, toys and snacks. They spent hours digging holes together, and peeking through the fence at the neighbors.

It took a few months, but Diesel recovered.

They're still best friends.

They both enjoy playing outdoors, water and going to the lake. Kamdyn hits the tee ball and Diesel fetches the ball for him. They both enjoy apples and peanut butter for an afternoon snack.

If Diesel had his way, he would jump in when Kamdyn takes a bubble bath.

They both enjoyed getting presents from Santa. Kamdyn got light-up shoes and his best friend got a bag of bones.
