Raffi Update

HI everyone! I haven't been around much the last couple of months so I wanted to check in and say hi to you all. I have moved my Mother from the nursing home back to my house. We recently made the decision to place her on Hospice care. Obviously I have been very busy with her.

Raffi took a bit of time getting use to the changes and had a set back in potty training. I think he was jealous. He has now snapped out of it and has abandoned his bells. He now goes to the door and waits for me to see him. If I am in a different room he whines or barks to get my attention.

The girl who stays with my mom while I am at work adores him. She calls him her little buddy and plays with him all she can. She might give him a few extra treats but she is so good with him I won't complain unless he starts getting too fat. It is nice to know they are both well cared for.

His first birthday is coming very soon and it is hard to believe since the time has passed so quickly. Of course that means he is in full coat blowing mode. He is very well behaved when I comb him. I think he likes getting the tangles taken care of. Whoever mentioned using corn starch thank you a million times over!!!

I hope to have time to catch up with everyone on the forum and hope you and your fur babies are doing well. I am attaching a picture from the day of his last grooming trip.

The other day he kept getting on the bed as I was making it so I decided to see what he would do if I just put the sheet and blanket over him. He was ready to just stay there and take a nap.

Great update on Raffi, et al. He's a cutie! Good luck with blowing coat.

Raffi looks adorable! Glad he is doing well. Transitions with our parents are hard. Remember to take care of yourself.

Raffi looks fantastic, what a beautiful boy. It was me about the cornstarch, it is a godsend with a blowing coat, I am glad it helps. Love the pics, keep well and check in when you can.

Raffi is adorable! What was his coloring as a puppy, was he sable? What does the cornstarch do and how do you use it?

You can see his coloring in my profile picture. He was mostly white with color on his ears. It is I think of it as a dark champagne but it might have a bit of apricot in it too. He also had just a few tiny wisps of color on his back. He now has the color down the center of his back mostly toward his rear end. I am sure if I put him in a short puppy cut you would see much more of it. They ears have actually lightened a bit as the hair has grown.

Raffi is a gorgeous boy! Good to hear an update on your little guy. The bed photo reminds me of my Sparky. He did the same thing. 😊 I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. You will be in my thoughts. Take care...
