In honor of National Puppy Day, here is a photo of Dora as a puppy. She was a “surprise,” born to my other dog Zuli, who was wandering the streets when I found her. Zuli was so thin at the time, not even a vet I took her to suspected she was pregnant. After a few weeks of eating and fattening up, however, she began to appear a little round in the mid-section. And so I went to another vet who confirmed my suspicions. A week later, she gave birth to this one perfect puppy.
