End of watch, dear and faithful boy.  Wait for us at the Bridge.  We'll meet you there.   

Named for the Archangel, Raphael, patron saint of travelers.  His deep voice and vigilance encouraged predators to "travel on"

"Raffie" was from a long line of working guardian dogs and the nephew of our original guardian, Sabir's Michael. 

In May of  2010, when he was 12 weeks old, we drove to California to pick him up from Lost Armadillo Ranch, a long time

Anatolian breeder. 

He never met a person he didn't love.

It was a privilege and an honor. 

Run joyfully, free of care and pain.
