Nora was an abused 8-year-old pointer. Despite her traumatic background, she was rescued by Elizabeth Spence.
The Spence has been a family to rescued cats and dogs, and this has been advocacy to them. Their house transformed into a loving home to furry friends and three human children.
The youngest of her children is an 11-month-old baby boy named Archie. He has been pretty used to all the cats and dogs around him. But Archie developed a preference over the quiet companion, Nora.

Archie and Nora don’t nap together as often as they used to, but when they do they bring their ‘A’ game ❤️ . (And because I know you’re going to ask, our blue ticking stripe quilt set is from @primitivestarquiltshop ❤️) #nappingwithNora (and Rose) #archietheanimalwhisperer
Since Nora was a rescued abused dog, she usually afraid of almost everything and everyone. This trauma caused her these securities and fear. But when it comes to baby Archie, it’s like she has totally forgotten about all hesitations, and she opens up through sibling love and adoration for Archie. I think they both just find each other too cute to resist.
Nora has now found her favorite human in Archie. She would always stay by his side. Whether Archie is feeding or taking a bath, Nora would wait for her human to finish up so that they could resume playing.
Aside from playing and making a mess, these two love having naps together. And seeing them side by side, or hugging while napping is such a heartwarming sight to the Spence’s.

Elizabeth started documenting the adorable connection between Archie and Nora. Their nap times and play times are just too cute to be ignored. And now that Archie is growing into his toddler years, and starting to stand up and learn more, he has Nora to grow up with and make more beautiful memories together.
From an abused dog to a caring and loving companion, Nora has changed because of all the love she received from the Spence’s. And I guess she didn’t even notice the change.
Now this once fearful dog is unconsciously giving back to love she receives from her new family.
