Arrival Story: Karma had to be put down due to an aggressive brain tumor. Be responsible, buy your pets from a reliable breeder.
Bio: Karma is now 2.5 years old and is one of my best friends and runner up protector. His extremely sensitive to my moods and breathing patterns and will wake me up when I have nightmares or come put his head on my bed so I can pet him till I fall asleep. He's a big goofy boy and loves to play, he will chase a ball till my arm falls off.
Karma loves his big brother Russ, his cats (especially Chocolate Fox), his horses and his human family. He loves being photographed and coming everywhere with me.
My human has been posted up North (in Northern QC) and she opted to take me with her instead of leaving me with her mother. The 12 hour ride was torture, I was stashed on the floor of the truck in my humans footspace between eggs, boots, sleeping bags and backpacks. There were four humans and me in the truck, it was very squishy but my human shared the bench with me for half the ride so it was okay. The worst part was when they all went in to eat and I had to stay and guard the eggs and stuff. I was /not/ happy at all. Other than that I was a very good boy though, I didn't complain the whole time, and I didn't growl at the men once, I even let them all pat me without fuss. My human is very happy with my progress (I used to be very vocal about my hate of men, but now I just take it all in stride).
We arrived at 2am last night and boy was I happy to get out and run around! We will be here for three months. I don't like it as much as home but I think I'll get used to it rather quickly.
I disobeyed the "Ven Aqui" (stop what you are doing and come here right now) command for the first time in my life. I have always had an AMAZING recall no matter what the situation (chasing cats, playing with other dogs, any distraction etc), but today I ignored my human's call and went crashing through the ice 12 feet away from the edge as a result. I was terrorized! I couldn't get out no matter how much I tried and my human, as crazy as she is, threw her 700$ camera and its pack into the snow and belly dived unto the ice polar bear style to reach me. Though the ice was shifting under her, she made it over to me, grabbed my collar and hauled me out of the hole onto the ice where we both made our way back to solid ground. I'm all wet and tired but I'm okay, and I think I will think twice about disobedience next time... My human was so scared and so was I.
It is safe to say that I am 100% all tired out. When my human and I set out on our daily walk neither of us knew how far we'd get. We just walked and rand and walked though the forest, random motorbike trails, the sandpit and ended up in a neighbourhood I'd never been to before. We met some people my human knew and they talked for a while, I wanted to play with the little girl (she is 5 human years I think) but my human wouldn't let me since when I am excited I tend to bodyslam into people and little kids really don't have much balance... so I settled for covering her face in kisses instead. After that it started getting dark out and my human took me to a kiddie part there was no one there so it made a great training area. There was also a little barking dog tied nearby and a Labrador that was running loose. I was very good at ignoring both of them and that made my human so proud. I also leaned to climb up slides and slide down them, it was a lot of fun. I got to sit on my humans lap too on the swing (I so did not want to be in a down stay beside the swings and miss all the fun!). It was much easier to stay on when I was smaller though... Anyways, I am going to have a nap now...
