If you can’t try your way with Mom, try it with Grandma. This is especially the case for Pandora and Mimi, her grandmother, and sugar mom for treats.
Pandora’s close relationship with her grandmother Mimi could really make anyone wonder who she actually stays with. Every time Mimi comes over for a visit, Pandora completely forgets about the world and runs off with Mimi in an instant.
Mimi lives in Florida while Pandora lives with her mom Marissa in New York. The airport seemingly becomes a scene for the reunion of past lovers whenever the two meet.
Can’t get a treat from Marissa? That’s no problem for Pandora whenever Mimi’s around because she’s her partner in crime.
Unfortunately for Pandora, her paralyzed legs make walking a long ordeal. Mimi’s presence, however, energizes Pandora so much that an hour-long walk with Marissa turns into a fifteen-minute walk with Mimi.
Pandora also has a very busy schedule of whom she hangs out with. Evenings are exclusively reserved for sleeping on the couch with Grandma. Marissa would probably have to set up an appointment with her during that time!
Behind this cute relationship, however, is a mom who didn’t give up on Pandora and Mimi couldn’t be any prouder. Dog parents know the struggle of taking care of a dog, let alone a disabled one. Mimi’s extremely proud of her daughter because of her determination to take care of Pandora, which makes her different from the people who would have given up earlier.
Marissa shares her incredible story of caring for Pandora on her Instagram page @inspirationaldachshund. On one post, she says how Pandora’s paralysis transformed her life by being “less self-centered and more selflessly-centered.”
