graced our lives for much too short a time. Our "keeper"
puppy from the Magnum/Emma breeding, Karma quickly became the
brightest spot in our home, endearing herself to many, but choosing
one very special place in Mike's heart to call her own.
nine weeks, they were inseparable. Mike's hopes of a male to
train after Yngo retired shifted to training sessions with
Karma. The two of them had big plans to take on the world and I
had no doubt that they would accomplish that particular goal as both
possessed equally tenacious personalities.
Karma did not recover from an intestinal blockage. We still
don't know what it was that she ingested, or why she did not bounce
back after the surgery. We made the final decision to take away
her pain on September 8, 2005. Heartbroken does not begin to
describe how we are feeling.
you to Dr. Kerstin Kelly of the Fenelon Animal Clinic for caring
enought to take Karma into her own home over a holiday weekend and
for referring us to the wonderful veterinarians at the VEC Critical
Care Unit in Toronto. Although we prayed for a better
outcome, it is comforting to know that Karma received the best
possible care and large amounts of compassion during her ordeal.
importantly, thank you to Cassie and Kevin Levy for allowing us the
opportunity to love our little Princess Jr. She was truly
special and we will never forget her.
