A long day – Monday 11th September 2023

A long day

Yesterday was a long day. I do feel very sorry for Rafa but I’m also feeling a little displaced, which isn’t helping. He has been trying to look out of the window or through the fence to see if his humans are coming for him and howling occasionally. There are humans out there who don’t believe that dogs feel things deeply and don’t think about things. You only have to look at Rafa to realise that’s not true. Dogs might live more in the moment than humans, but we don’t only live like that. We think and we feel and for Rafa at the moment life is very hard indeed.

Attached to Dad

He has become very attached to Dad. Dad is such a wonderful big softie and I can quite understand why he’s done that. It’s a bit hard as I’m quite close to Dad too and I’m having to step back a little. Oh don’t get me wrong, I’m Mum’s dog first and foremost and Mum has said that will not change. She is making sure I’m obviously her number one, but it isn’t easy.

Then there is Aristotle

Ari isn’t here right now. He’s taken himself off on a little holiday too. He won’t have to get used to his brother being around until he comes home on Wednesday. If I’m being honest, I think he’s in for quite a surprise. Ari and Rafa are full brothers, both from the A litter. However they haven’t seen each other for many years, so I don’t think brotherly love is going to count for a great deal. We’re all just hoping that Ari is his usual laid back self and willing to take it in his stride. It could be a tough one though.
