Before her rescue, Dora lived outside in a yard with several other dogs. She wasn’t pampered or spoiled, and she most certainly was not responsible for any house chores.
Being two years old and all, she must have figured that she has been slacking and she’d better make up for lost time. So on day two of her grand adventure in our foster home, she got right to work doing the laundry.
While bashful Sir Chick always hides during laundry time because of the loud noises the machine makes, Dora the Explorer boldly stood by for the whole endeavor, even venturing to sniff out the goods, determining which was the smelliest.
Inspecting the laundry-in-waiting wasn’t enough for this brave girl, though. She insisted on checking out the washing machine contents before we took the dirty clothes for a spin.
It turned out that Dora was a very good laundry assistant. After helping fish the treats out of various pants pockets and identifying which shirt had the most interesting scent on its sleeve, she bravely played patty cakes with the washing machine during the spin cycle, play-bowed to the dryer as it fluffed, and did her very best to hold still while I did my very best to use her back as a folding table. She’s got a ways to go, but at least the girl tries!
