Here she is, just moments ago...our 'birthday-plus-3-days' girl, our sweet sweet Dora. She was born January 25, 2004 and joined our family on April 10th when she was nearly eleven weeks old. We adopted Bella on the same day so they have only known life together for almost all of their seven years. I can't imagine our days without them.
Here's a little trip down memory lane. Both of these photos of Dora were taken April 28, 2004. The second one brings back such fun memories because, as a tiny pup, Dora was afraid of those steps on our deck so would only stay on the top "talking" to Bella who was taunting her from below. We chuckle at those "conversations" between the two of them that, to this day, they still have on a daily basis.
