Just an update on how Raffi is getting on. As I type he's fast asleep here at my feet - he loves his sleep!! He is still as wonderful as ever - even more so to be honest. We just had a Confirmation party complete with bouncy castle and a ton of kids and Raffi enjoyed every bit of it and was so so good. He was going around trying to Hoover up every little morsel that was dropped on the ground
I cannot find the words to describe what a wonderful dog Raffi is - he has the sweetest, kindest nature of any dog I have met. And have I mentioned how handsome he is......sometimes I am admiring him so much that dh reminds me I didn't actually give birth to him myself!!
He has been to Sligo on holidays with us twice now to see his human nanan and grandad and he adores the going down there. We are able to let him off the lead on the beach there as we can be confident he cant run off on us - all bets are off though when he sees another dog, he takes off like a racehorse to play with them. He took his first swim last weekend and as with everything Raffi does he was a natural at it! Poor thing gets a surprise every time he tries to drink the sea water though
He's great in the car once we let him travel on an empty stomach (thanks to his foster mum marie for that tip) - we just strap him into his harness and he snuggles down in the back seat with the kids until we get there. His Nanan and grandad are very impressed with what a good dog he is and they love having him to visit.
We and everyone who meets him cannot for the life of us understand how Raffi ended up with DID but we are delighted that he did because we now have the pleasure of his company and for that we are so so grateful.
Thank you all at DID so much for Raffi and keep up all the fantastic work that you do. For anybody who, like me, was looking at the site for ages before making the first move - go ahead fill in those adoption forms, and contact DID, it will be one of the best things you will ever do.
