Her name is Aurora, but she goes by Rory. She is a beautiful three-month-old brown package of piddle border collie and I am investing in a Bissell Spot Shot very very soon to save the carpet. When we brought her home, she was about the same size as Eli, but a little taller and with a bigger head. She outgrew him overnight. She still looks like a stuffed animal, though.
Her name, Aurora, comes from a town in the Denver Metro area, where we will probably be spending a lot of our time since our Denver neighborhood shares a border with Aurora. She is not named after Rory Gilmore.
(Brian didn't go for my suggestion that we name her Aurora Borealis and call her Rory-Bory.) (Sometimes I call her Rory-Bory anyway.) (UPDATE: Brian came around.)
