   Leave a bone for Kharma

Little Monster, Drama Queen

Quick Bio:

Stealing things and hiding them in one of her nests, belly rubs, hunting, any kind of attention, and making the cows go wherever she thinks they need to be

Being ignored

Favorite Toy:
Whatever Shiva's playing with

Favorite Food:
Mother Hubbard treats, blackberries, whatever's in Bimmer's dish, anything she catches

Favorite Walk:
back behind the barn where it's nice and muddy

Best Tricks:
her patented "long face", getting Bimmer to let her eat out of his bowl, washing the mud off in the wading pool before she comes inside (thank goodness Bimmer taught her to do that - she gets SO muddy!)

Arrival Story:
I waited a long time for this particular puppy from Defender Filas in Knoxville, Tennessee. She's out of the half sister of our first Fila (Buffy, who was poisoned), bred back to the dog who was Buffy's father, so she's as close as we could get to having a pup from our Buffy. She has all the excellent herding instinct and hard temperament we expected from Buffy's line, but with her own quirky, playful personality. Bimmer adores her and lets her get by with all kinds of things, and Shiva immediately adopted her. Unfortunately for Shiva, even as little as Kharma still is compared to her, Kharma bosses Shiva around.

Kharma's very sweet and loving, but she's also got the classic Fila attitude. She got into the electric fence the first time when she was about 11 weeks old. Instead of running away, she growled and turned around and bit it - twice! And that's a HOT fence, too. Kharma's only 5 1/2 months old now, and she's already been moving the cows around. She also thinks she's completely capable of protecting us and guarding her home already. Kharma's decided she's my baby and does her utmost to make sure she's glued to my side at every opportunity. She's fearless and brave and loves will all her heart and I just can't imagine not having her in my life.
