Fetch & Follow Stories | Sarah & Raph

We have been fans of Evermore London since it launched in 2015 and have had the pleasure of meeting founder Sarah and her adorable border terrier Raph when they used to pop by Follow & Follow stall at Netil Market.

 We had a chat with Sarah about her favourite dog walks and studio life with Raph

Tell us about Raph and how he came into your life

I’ve had Raph for 5 years now; we collected him when he was 8 weeks old. My now husband and I had been talking about getting a dog for a while and we’d decided we wanted to get a border terrier as we’d heard they were full of character and personality. One night when Ric was at his parents in Yorkshire, he sent me a picture of an old school ‘puppies for sale’ A4 print out that was up on a pin board in his local pub. We called the number the next day. When we went to see the pups at a local farm, there was only 2 left from a litter of 6. There was a very excitable girl and a shy, quiet boy. We both fell in love with the boy, took him home and called him Raph.

How does Raph fit into a general day working at Evermore

 Raph comes along to my studio with me, some days he’ll go to work with my husband and hang out with him at his studio. Before coming to work with me, we go on a big walk so he’s a bit more chilled in the studio! He’ll have a little sleep in the morning and then spend most of the day catching some rays outside and introducing himself to the customers at the coffee shop next door.

When you're not working were do you and Raph like to hang out

We tend to hang out at Leyton Jubilee Park and Hackney Marshes. There’s a little opening to Lea Bridge canal that’s a perfect (and safe) swim spot. It was a hidden gem last year, but it’s actually becoming quite a popular place to hang out now. Raph loves the water, so it’s the perfect place for him to cool off during the summer.

What essentials do you always have on you when heading out with Raph and what do you carry them in?

If it’s rainy or cold Raph always has on his camo dog jacket from Fetch & Follow. We’ve also got our eye on the Fetch & Follow quilted travel blanket.

What adventures do you and Raph have planned for the rest of the year

Weekly picnics on Hackney Marshes, a camping trip to Wales and a trip to Scotland for New Year.
