Dora – a relatively old rat – came into my life after having lost my baby daughter, Louisa, several months prior. Dora’s bright, adventurous and loving nature has brought some light in a time of tragedy and hopelessness. Everyday she waits for me with her deep brown eyes where she then proceeds to follow me as I do household chores, climbing up and down my leg to sit on my shoulder. It’s an amusing spectacle! In this brief period of time I am no longer overwhelmed with heavy sadness, rather filled with amusement watching geriatric Dora’s childish antics as I wonder what she will do next.
Thank you Dora for giving me the motivation to place one foot in front of the other everyday!
