Meet Cora

They say it’s a dog eat dog world out there, but I disagree. My name is Cora, and I see the world as beautiful and humanity as innately good.


I’m no young spring pup, and I’ve been around the block a few times, which is great, because I really love going for walks. And in my, ahem, advanced age, I also love sitting in the sun with you. And belly scratches. Ooh, and when you rub that little spot behind my ears… Honestly though, I’m told I look very young for my age.

Today, I’m here to dispel some common dog myths for you.

They say “dogs can’t see rainbows”, but I do see them. And I feel them, when it rains outside and the world feels alive again. I love the smell of petrichor in the air, the way the grass feels, and most of all, I love getting to spend time with people.

They also say “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. That’s wrong, too. I mean, I’m a bit slower nowadays and I’ll learn on my own time, but that doesn’t mean I won’t listen to you, love you, and try to make you happy.

The last thing I’ve always heard is “dogs are man’s best friend”. This one isn’t a myth, but they always forget the most important part… Humans are a dog’s best friend, too! And currently, I’m looking for that special someone to spend the rest of my life with. I have a lot of love left to give and a lot of happy moments I want to share with you.

Look, I’m not saying life doesn’t have hard moments. Like right now, I seem to be having some issues with an injury on my foot. Sometimes I limp a little because it’s sore. And it’s hard because surgery is EXPENSIVE!

Or at least, that’s what the humans around me keep saying. I can’t say I know much about the medical side of things (I did briefly consider getting my dog-torate in medicine, but instead, I specialized in cuddling), or anything about finances.

If you’re willing to throw us a bone (metaphorical or literal is fine by me), then donate to Zoe’s! Your donation will help cover the cost of surgery to repair my toes and keep me pain free!
