From the moment Lea D. clapped eyes on little Nora Pearline, she was smitten: “The second I saw my little one, I held her tight and fell completely in love.”
So begins the age old story of girl meets dog, girl loves dog, dog proceeds to poop, pee and throw up on girl all the way home.
“Back at the house, Nora’s sister Kasha (the black dog) took a little more convincing. After all, no one asked HER if she wanted a little sister! For over a month, Nora followed Kasha EVERYWHERE, perpetually in search of a cuddle. Kasha was eventually overpowered by Corgi determination, at which point she caved in and the two finally bonded.”
Like water on a stone, I wore her down and now she is mine!
“Nora is a very stubborn girl, and a little too smart for her own fluffy trousers. She is her Mom’s best friend and full-time companion.”
“Together we’ve gone all the way to Tennessee, Vermont, on countless hiking trips, camping trips and all over New York State on adventures.”
“My little traveler and I often go camping on weekends and swim in the creek in the Summer. Nora has finally become brave enough to just jump in the water and actually swim.”
“I am so proud!”
“Nora loves tennis balls, but her favorite activity is slipping out the door and running fast enough that she’s just out of reach. No matter how mad it makes me, though, the second I get into bed Nora always slips in next to me, ready to sleep tucked under my arm.”
“In the mornings, she doesn’t like to get up, so I have to drag her out of bed and coax her outside.”
When I hear the vrooom-vroooms, I get the zoom-zooms!
“She hates all things motorized, especially the vaccuum. She tries to take it down and drags it away to “defeat it”. From electric scooters to the hair dryer to the lawn mower, if it has an engine you’d better watch out!”
“Since she came to be with me, Nora and I have moved a lot. It’s been difficult for both of us, but together we’ve made it through. At one point I was working thirteen hours a day, seven days a week, but Nora did so well with the separation.”
“Kasha doesn’t live with us anymore because all the moving was too stressful on her in her senior years. She now lives with a relative who gives her plenty of love and places to run (perfect for a Husky/Aussie mix). Nora misses Kasha dearly, but I make sure to reunite them as often as possible.”
Nora as “Minnie” in The Daily Corgi’s Fun Hat Friday feature from last August!
“Needless to say, Nora is my pride, my joy and essentially my whole life. We’ve been inseparable since I first laid eyes on her.”
“Always in my lap, always by my side, this little Corgi has made my life the best in the world, and I would give my life for her as she has given life to me.”
THE END (of a very beautiful story).

Welcome to The Daily Corgi, Nora Pearline!
If there’s ever another Corgi just like you, I call dibs!
Nora, you are just like my Noodles with anything that has an engine. My poor vacuum and blow dryer will never be the same. You sound like a lot of fun!
My boys Scooter and Murphy hate all appliances, except the can opener! They even dislike the ironing board! Nora sure is a cutie!
Thanks for sharing this again. Nora is a darling as is her mom.
