I meant to do this long ago when we first got Didikai but as per life, I got busy and forgot. I recently got a inquiry from a member of the staff at Stafford Animal Shelter so I figured better late then never.
I wasn’t even looking for a new dog at the time. I already have two and was going to wait until my older lab passed to start looking for a new dog. Well an employee at work was on the Stafford web site looking for a friends lost cat and I was getting ready to tell them to get off because they were on the clock and there was Didikai. I went to the shelter immediately at lunch and fell in love with her right away. I wrote the check to hold her on the spot. I have never regretted it. She was only 11 months at the time but seemed to know there was a time o play like a puppy and a time to be calm. She is not a little dog, she was 77 lbs and able to almost put her paws on my shoulders, I am 5’10”. She loves to play but is totally content at being a couch dog too. She is wonderful with my son. He was only 7 when we got Didikai but they are like two peas in a pod.
She has been a wonderful addition to our pack. 2 1/2 years later she weights close to 100 lbs now. Still loves to play and cuddle with dad on the couch or sharing the bed. She has probably got the sweetest disposition of any dog I have ever had. I really cannot imagine our lives with out her. She has road tripped with us, she endures long car ride but has been to Washington many times and all over the west coast this past summer. She got to play in the ocean with my son and got to ride an the tram in the redwood forest. She is thee best travel dog usually resting her head on the center console so she gets to be part of the action. We love Didikai dearly and are happy she joined our pack.
