A milestone for Dora


Dora started the night in her kennel but, after a few minutes of backyard bathroom time about 2:30 a.m., indicated she wanted up onto the bed.

So we decided to give her another chance at sleeping with us, expecting her to grow fidgety after a few minutes and have to be returned to her kennel. She fussed a little, then flopped down next to Maria’s leg and drifted off to sleep. We both woke up at various times during the rest of the night and were pleased to find her still there. She was in the same position when we woke up for good about 8:30 a.m.

We are amazed.

She has achieved at the age of 4.5 months what it took Pete two or three years and which Jack has not yet achieved at two years of age. But Pete and Jack were/are both boys and perhaps a bit more rambunctious. At any rate, she is becoming the sweet velcro dog we hoped she could be.
