Raro is very laid back.
Brooke and Penny are staying with Vulcan and Raro for a while – and they fit in very well. They are both playful and while Penny is quite pushy, Brooke usually puts her in her place. And Raro and Vulcan both ignore all that is going on anyway.
They are both smart, and know what is required and follow the routine very well; they are great to walk together.
In fact, last night Brooke refused to walk with Raro, she hung back until she could walk with Penny.
Harry came with us to dinner last night. He really liked my 12yr old cousin, followed her around all night and spent a lot of time with his head resting on her. This dog appeared to be terrified of active children when he first arrived but certainly had no problems with quiet children one on one. Harry was just perfectly behaved, happy to see Penny (my cousin’s greyhound) again.
Harry shows little concern for personal space, here he has squashed Raro into a corner of the sofa. Raro is very relaxed about this, Vulcan would never tolerate it.
Harry fast asleep as he falls off the sofa again.
Harry is very interactive, very smart and despite the sofa thing, very trainable. Was almost agoraphobic when he first arrived but now gets very excited about walks (or everything, really). Walking with Raro has been a big help with his confidence. Terrified of active children. Will not enjoy fireworks. Loves his food.
Harry seems very comfortable with Raro. He’s actually pretty pushy and not at all respectful of space. He’s also spent time in a house before, and was clearly very familiar with the concept of sofas (we’ve given up trying to stop him from lying on sofas, it is too hard with our guys being allowed).
