We collected our beautiful little Raffi this morning from his fantastic Foster family. It was sad for him to say goodbye to someone who he obviously loved very much, never mind saying goodbye to his foster sibling doggies as well. Such an amazing little doggie - he is fabulous and has already settled in like he always lived here. He spent some time this morning playing with the kids in the back garden and having a good old sniff around - he had his lunch, then another play and then a lovely big walk around the neighbourhood. I can tell you he turned a head or two with his cheeky good looks and his friendly disposition. He loves other dogs and had to say hello to EVERY dog we met. He has made friends already with the glamorous Tibetian Terrier Roxy around the corner and had a great sniff with Alfie the Golden Retriever. Raffie loves other dogs almost as much as he loves people. He licked the face off some young guy who was loitering around our local shop trying to look cool - even he couldn't resist Raffis charms!! He has been so so good - going out to go to the toilet since he arrived. We were waiting in anticipation for the first Doo doo as the kids were fighting over who got to do the first poop scoop (wonder how long that will last ;) ) - lets just say Raffi produced while he was out for the walk so our brand new poop scoop got used.

As I type now he is fast asleep at my feet. We feel like we are the luckiest family in the world to have Raffi and are so grateful to all in Dogs in Distress for taking care of him until we met him.

Just a quick update on how the lovely Raffi is doing! He is an amazing little dog and has settled in completely - he has won the hearts of everybody in the house and everybody he meets. Raffi is the most friendly dog I have ever come accross - he smiles up at everybody he meets when he is out for his walks and most people can't resist him and stop to give him a rub. He also loves every other dog he meets and can't understand why they don't always love him back... He likes to have a play with other dogs but not all dogs or owners are up for the game and this confuses Raffi, so he barks quite a bit at them as they walk away from him. :? We're working on this, and I think he is starting to understand that not all dogs are as sociable as he is - and the barking is def not happening as much as it was. However, any tips on dealing with this would be much appreciated! At home Raffi is so so good. No accidents and he always goes outside to do his business. :D :D He loves to hide his chewy treats in the garden and then find them a few days later and enjoy them then! He is the most perfect dog ever - he loves to get kisses and cuddles, loves playing and is so so gentle with the kids. We call him Raffi the Wonder Dog! :lol: At night he sleeps in his lovely comfy bed and he greets us every morning with a big huge sleepy head and a waggy tail all ready for another fun day. Thanks DID for all you did for Raffi before he came to us. I will post some photos soon.

Raffi is getting on great - he's really showing us who's boss now - you just have to touch a coat or pick up the keys and he's ready and waiting for a walk - we're all enjoying being getting out and about much more! The barking when he meets other dogs is happening much less now and he is starting to understand that not all other dogs are as friendly as he is. I met a man the other day who has a springer spaniel that he rescued and the spaniel is always afraid of other dogs - guess what, he loved our Raffi :D :D He's very much part of the family now and we all are completely mad about him. He's such a good dog, loves to play, adores people and is the perfect pet. What a little star he is. Here are some photos of him dressed up in his shamrock cravat for St Patricks day - if I can upload them :?
