Aurora's human mum, Charlotte Barton, said: "She never fails to make me laugh, even when she’s being naughty!
"The love I have for her is unconditional. She just fills my heart, like what I imagine having a child is like.
"I burst with pride when people come up to me and compliment her looks and nature. She’s truly a gem.
"She knows when to adapt around children which blows my mind. Recently she let a little girl walk her when usually she’s yanking my arm off!
"They were rolling in the grass and when Aurora was being given sticks to chew she took them so gently and she even let the little girl put flowers in her collar. Just utterly mesmerising to watch."
Aurora is a keen social butterfly!
Charlotte added: "We often chat to each other. Usually when I’m telling her no she’ll give off a grumble and wooo but it ends in a game of tickles!
"It’s a privilege to be her human mum and I can’t wait to explore life with her."
Aurora's favourite activities of running and climbing managed to get the voters behind her, even if it meant she was getting up to no good counter surfing and raiding bins!
However, despite the dalmatian's new found fame she still has a fear of the sea, but with some tough love, her family are hoping to teach Aurora to love the seaside waters.
Even with her wild side Aurora knows she should listen to her owner – albeit with selective hearing.
Aurora can sit, lay down, give paw, leave, stay and do her favourite spin, all with food as a motivator, of course.
At the end of the day, this Dally is an affectionate girl. She cries when she wants snuggles and gets in as close as possible.
Her charm undoubtedly helped her clutch this month's Kent Pets Tournament!
For those new to the game, every month we will be choosing eight animals across Kent for readers to explore the lives of and vote on who will be Kent's Pet of the Month.
Every week readers will vote on pairs of animals to go to the next round until only one remains.
