Arrival Story:
We lost our beloved cat in October, and were feeling like we needed to add a family member. Our older Coonhound, Dade, seemed like he needed a friend so we started looking around for one. We found Dora on petfinder.com, at a puppy rescue organization. Her previous owner didn't realize how much work she would be and gave her up. How could you give up such a sweet face? We met her at an adoption event, and took Dade along. They were so cute together, it was impossible to not get her. We've never had a puppy before, and she's a lot of work! But we love her more every day.

Bio:
Dora is a sweetie who came to us from a rescue group. She is strong-willed and gets into EVERYTHING. She loves to boss her big brother Dade around, and he's usually very good-tempered about it. Every minute is an adventure as she gets into more mischief, but she is bonding more with her family every day and loves to jump on her daddy while he's sleeping and nibble his ears. She has really fit into her new family and has the routine down very well. Dora has an awesome bawl too, which makes us laugh. We love her, even if she is wearing us out right now!

Forums Motto:

It's been an exciting week!

Two exciting new things have happened to me this week. First of all, mom and dad let me go to bed in their bed instead of in my kennel. I love it so much that I sleep straight through the night and don't even get up once to go out. Suddenly it seems very cold when I go outside so I'm happy to snuggle up in the warm bed. Sometimes my big brother even gets in bed too and then we are really warm.

Then last weekend, mom and dad got their coats on and mom got her purse, so I thought it was time for me to kennel up like usual. But they LEFT and didn't even put me in my kennel. FREEDOM! I had the whole house to roam, but I didn't even chew on anything or make a mess. Sure, it was only about 30 minutes but it was very exciting!

 

Storms, Schtorms!

Lately we've been getting a lot of the wet stuff coming down from the sky. I'm all for it, because it makes it even easier for me to dig in the mud. You should see some of the holes I've created-- I'm so proud of myself but for some reason Mom doesn't seem that happy when I come prancing around the corner of the house with my whole face and legs covered in mud. Yuk- then I have to stand there while she wipes me down with girly- smelling dog wipes.

But at night, that's when the rain has come down really hard, with big flashes of light and loud BOOMS! I don't mind one bit-- I sleep right through it. I am FEARLESS DORA. The only reason I know they are happening is because my scardy-cat older brother Dade starts shaking and panting enough to wake the whole house. Poor guy, I don't know what he is so scared about. And last night, along with the loud booms, a noisy thing went off that my dad says was a "tornado siren." Now, I don't know what a tornado is, but it must be something that comes to the front door because Dad and Mom woke me up from my lovely sleep (dreaming about digging in the mud) and took me downstairs. But that was fun, I got to be up late and chew on my chewie rawhide, and mom played with me.

Then finally, we got to go back upstairs, and they let me back in my kennel so I could go back to sleep, which is just what I did. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

 

Life is Good!

Well, my little operation is finally all healed, and so is my big brother's. So we have been having a ball playing togther again. I'm so happy to be able to chew on his ears and pester him again. Plus, you'll never guess what? I went to doggy day care one day to play, and when mom and dad brought me home that night, there was a whole new fence all around the back yard. I immediately went around the perimeter to make sure there wasn't a way I could get out, but darnit, it's air-tight.

The good thing is though, that I can chase Dade all the way around the house now! Plus, there is this great place called a "garden" that I run through. Mom stands right at the edge and tries to catch me before I run into it, but I always out-maneuver her. What a fun game! I'm not sure why she yells at me, but that must be part of the game.
