This portion is for the A-Z blog and is based on Karma. No, not the Hindu/Buddhist belief... the dog:-) She is a Jack Russell Terrier and Papillon mix although she is Jack Russell through and through. She seems to have some of the larger ear traits of the Papillon but other than that, from what I read anyway, you wouldn't know there was a Papillon involved in the mix! This is Karma:
Well, Karma is actually the boyfriend's dog but I treat her like my own. Her name is a play on words cause you know what they say about Karma and she is a female dog.... I don't want to have to swear here so tell me you get it;-) She's a bundle of energy though so now that the weather is finally getting nicer I'll have to take her on some walks, Lord knows I could use that exercise myself!
With that I spin off to the Sprout topic. It is "Who do you miss?" I immediately thought of my sprout Pixie. She was a Chihuahua that my sister got me for Christmas in 2008. Our cousin's dog had pups and I had been house sitting a Chihuahua for a friend of theirs at the time that I got attached to. She was nice in those days and knew that I also wanted another little dog so Mogli (my Min Pin) could have a friend so she got Pixie for me cause the other would be going home. Here is Pixie when I first got her:
Adorable right?? That's Mogli there with her in the 2nd picture. They were fast friends. Always playing and boy did she sound like a little gremlin with that puppy growl of hers when they played! Unfortunately I only had Pixie for a few months. She was a burrower and she got caught up in some blankets and suffocated in her sleep. She was hanging out with my nephew at the time who also fell asleep and I don't like to lay blame cause it was an accident and could have probably happened with anyone, even if she were by herself. I still feel like it comes back to Karma somehow... and in this sense I do mean the Hindu/Buddhist belief:-)
