In 1983 our daughter Cora was born and in 1985 Rhoda came to our home as a puppy from 8 weeks old.
She was a Rottweiler Doberman mix and the cutest little pooch.
She was as sweet as they come. Growing up together it became obvious that she saw it as her job to protect that little girl.
Only after a few month she barked her tiny bark to everyone who approached our daughter and wasn't familiar to her.
Growing up together was like seeing two sisters growing up.
Best friends for life. When I had night shift Rhoda slept with her on her room. Have to mention that she of course was a teenager then!! But it felt really safe.
My daughter became a great animal lover too and I am sure that's because she learned to be gentle and respectful to animals this way!
Rhoda past away at the age of 13. She had colon cancer. But she had a long and very happy life with us. She will always be in our hearts
This is Rhoda’s and my story. What’s yours?
