Ralph was such a good boy to get ready for his walk - we were off in no time at all. My son Jake wanted to walk him with his fiancé beth. They are new walkers so I asked them if they'd rather start small and work their way up.....Ralph is quite a big boy!! Nope, they wanted Ralph, so off they went. I passed them 20 minutes later when I was walking Winnie (terrier). Ralph was relaxed, slack lead and thoroughly enjoying being fussed over by two people. He did get a little worried as Winnie passed him and I must admit we all had a little chuckle....Ralph is 10 times the size of Winnie but hid behind Jakes legs!!! Both Beth and Jake said Ralph was a pleasure to walk with a personality to match. Xx

Ralph is one of my absolute favourites, such a fabulous gentle giant! He greeted me in his kennel this morning as only Ralph can and then we were off, he walks out past all the other dogs without even a glance, a pleasure to be with him. We had a short walk then back to the paddock for a run around with two visitors who had delivered a new terrier to us. They fell in love with this handsome boy immediately although he played hard to get while stretching his legs and sprinting up and down. When it was time to go back to his kennel he made me so proud with his instant recall, ready and waiting by the gate when I asked him to, good job Ralph! Now he just needs that forever home to call his own love4.gif

I can't look you in the eye Jake after I've seen you in all your glory :-))
Ralph was soooooo pleased to see my son Jake entering his kennel - he gave him the biggest cuddle and in his excitement accidentally pulled Jakes trousers and pants down 0002.gif] Luckily Beth was there to spare his blushes and blocked the kennel nudity until Jake had composed himself.....phew. As always, Ralph is easy to harness and exit the kennel block. He's an easy boy to walk - a little unsure sometimes but fine when told it's all ok. Loved being fussed and walks with a tiny swagger if you tell him what a good boy he is. Xx.

The bromance is blossoming. Xx
Dear Ralph lacks confidence in himself despite being a super dog. He can get worried by other dogs and will try and hide behind his walkers legs. With gentle reassurance he is fine - he takes great comfort from kind words. He hugs Jake as soon as he enters his kennel - quite the romance going on there.........Jakes pants stayed up this week - the trousers didn't 0002.gif] Ralph means no harm in his big, bear hug cuddles - he's just sooooo happy for some company and to be going for a walk. Jake and beth love walking him and always ask for him. They are new walkers which just goes to show how well behaved Ralph is. Xx

With Beth two weeks ago. Xx
To save Jakes blushes, I got Ralph harnessed and ready for his walk yesterday. He made a half hearted attempt to give me one of his 'special' cuddles but a firm uh uh and he stopped. Jake walks Ralph for miles - sometimes Ralph is unsure but he really does take great comfort from a confident walker. Ralph absolutely loves Jake and when he realised it was the marathon man walking him and not the middle aged slow worm, he was delighted!!

I got to walk Ralph on Saturday woo.gif] He is a very popular boy on Saturdays so I grabbed my chance with less walkers in.

Ralph was his wonderful self. Calm out on our walk and such a sweet boy. We passed little Rolo out on his walk and he barked at Ralph who sped up to get away from him! 0002.gif]

Ralph is a fantastic boy. Jake and Beth walked him today - they ask for Ralph every weekend as he’s stolen their hearts. I was right outside the kennels as they left, Ralph totally ignored me!! Cheek!! He loves the long walks Jake and Beth give him and wasn’t letting anyone make him miss a second of it. I feed all the dogs a treat before I go - Ralph was laying in his bed totally relaxed. He didn’t get up (god knows how many miles they walked him today :dog_running-186.gif: ), so I had to throw his treat in.xx.

I was delighted to be walking with Ralph on Friday! Ralph can be unsure around other dogs, so we went out walking with walker Simon and Ralph’s kennel neighbour Shadow. He was comfortable with Shadow walking ahead, but showed a little anxiety when he saw off lead dogs in the distance. Later in our walk we passed a couple of on lead spaniels and he barely even noticed them!

It’s clear Ralph hasn’t had lots of experience in the outside world but he is responsive to his walker when needed and affectionate and keen to engage (for sausages!) in the safety of his kennel. Ralph would really benefit being homed where he can continue to build his confidence and skills. A gorgeous pup inside and out love4.gif

I took Ralph out for the first time Saturday and found out what a smashing boy he was. I do like a larger dog (until I see some of our lovely little ones!) and I had noticed him in the kennels and wondered what he was like. I avoided his early pounces and harnessed him easily but had to switch his lead from material to chain ones as he bit through the material one (thankfully before we got off the premises).
Out of the kennels he’s very easy going (after reading about him I took a route that gave us a chance of avoiding other dogs) and he likes nothing better to just stop every now and then and simply look and listen. Very relaxing and not what I was expecting. Welcome to the world of Ralph!
He seemed quite distantly thoughtful at times and refused to take any treats when out, although he made up for this when we returned! If someone could adopt him and give him the stability and time he needs to adjust I’m sure they would have one lovely boy.
