Rescued Dog and Adorable Baby Make Up a Cute, Inseparable Duo
The adorably cute and inseparable duo, namely Nora the dog and baby Archie. Their mother, Elizabeth Spence dedicated her Instagram to taking photos of her two cute family members. Even though you couldn’t tell it from the photos, but Nora the dog, an 8-year-old English pointer, “came from an abusive background and is afraid of almost everything.” But when it comes to the 11-month-old Archie, “she absolutely adores him!”
Nora and Archie do almost everything together. The baby provides the dog with a sense of security and safety to the traumatized dog.
Spence explains, “If Archie is having a bath, Nora is lying on the bath mat waiting for him to get out. If I’m nursing him she wants up on my lap, too. If he’s going through my cupboards throwing all the dishes on the floor, she’ll be there cheering him on.”
Spence describes her son as an “extremely laid-back, happy, good-natured baby” which naturally draws Nora—as well as the family’s other rescued animals—to him. Together, Archie and Nora dress up as superheroes, play with balls and blocks in the family den, and snuggle for their daily afternoon nap. Though she started in an unhappy place, Nora has learned that some fears in our world can be overcome with a great friend by your side.
