Rafiki
By Uriah Rosenzweig and Kacy Dalton

In July 2016, an energetic ball of love and happiness jumped into our lives like a firestorm. Rafiki (formally known as Prince Rafiki Cannabis Rosenzweig of Wonder Valley), pranced around with an air of confidence, fearlessness, curiosity, boyish-charm, but most of all – love. The first time we laid eyes on each other, Rafiki picked us to be his humans; it was destiny. He expressed a deep sense of gratitude towards us daily for rescuing him from the shelter. But what no one could predict was how he could transform the world around us, and in fact, rescue us. He smiled all day, every day, and shined a special light on every human and animal his paws led him towards.

On the afternoon of March 5th, 2017, our fearless Fiki Boy went out on an adventure with Daddy and his new best-pup-friend Keno, as he had done so many times in the past. Running around the desert digging, turning up rocks, checking out abandoned mines and homesteads, romping around with his best-friends and getting his paws and nose dirty with any sort of exploration was what Rafiki adored. On this day however, he did something he had never done before. In a flash, our precious pup walked out onto Amboy, and that lonely desert road took a chunk of our soul.

In just a year on this dimensional plane, Fiki experienced it all. From the desert to the beach, camping under the stars, and car rides with the windows down, cuddling up next to the fire at home, and spreading love and light to family members and friends of the human and animal kind. With all the hurt and pain we are experiencing, there is a sense of peace knowing that Prince Rafiki is out there still shining his special love upon us all.

"If I can change the world, I would be the sunlight in your universe, you would think my love was really something good…baby if I could….change the world" -Eric Clapton with Rafiki
