The Singer Dog Bore
How did you meet your canine companion?
I found a picture on Facebook posted by a girl who takes care of rescued dogs. She found Kora's pregnant mother who gave birth to 9 puppies. As soon as I saw the pictures of the puppies, I fell in love with that little white teddy bear and I waited until she was 2 months old to welcome her home.
What’s the story behind your dog’s name?
All my pets' names are related to Gods and Demons. I have a cat named Lucifero and another one named Malacoda (a demon from the Divine Comedy). The first name I thought about for her was Andromeda - I discovered my passion for astronomy thanks to the Galaxy of Andromeda -, but it was way too long. I brainstormed some possible names and I come up with Kora, which is another name for the Greek queen of the Underworld.
How has your life changed since you have had your dog?
It has changed a lot. I used to stay all day long at my computer to work. Now I have someone else to care about, who "forces" me to sit up and walk for miles every day. I discovered some hidden spots in my town, where I have been living for almost 30 years, meet so many new people. My life has drastically changed for the better!
Which 3 words best describe your dog’s personality?
Cuddler, exuberant, explorer.
Who’s your dog’s favourite person?
My boyfriend and I are definitely my dog's favourite persons!
What’s your dog’s superpower?
She is a real explorer, despite being a scaredy-cat. She can be so gentle, but as soon as she smells the forest she turns into the wildest bulldozer.
If your dog had a job, what would it be?
I think the driller would definitely fit her.
What’s your dog’s most unappealing / most embarrassing habit?
She loves poop. Definitely too much!
Where can we find you hanging out with your dog?
You can definitely find us where there is nature!
Finish this sentence "a dog walks into a bar….”
….and turns itself into a hoover, trying to eat every single pastry crumb on the ground.
