To Cooper ... with love!

As promised, here are some photos of Kara, especially for Cooper (and Ronny too of course!)

Name: Kara Humphreys aka The Princess!
Date of Birth: 9th June 2008
Breed: Chihuahua
Nationality: Spanish
Colour: Ginger brown with dark, almost black, 'stripe' down back and on tail, white on tummy and chest and some white toes!
Eyes: Brown
Weight: 1.5 kilos
History: When she came to live with us, aged almost 4 months old, she was suffering from ricketts and malnutrition.  Our lovely vet felt that she'd definitely been badly treated in other ways too as she had a broken tail and her back legs were damaged and couldn't support her weight.  With a good diet she showed improvement within one week. Unfortunately she does suffer with Epilepsy and will have to take medication for the rest of her life.
Favourite outfits:  Red collar, Beige jumper with yellow and burgundy stripes knitted by her Nan!
Personality: Timid and nervous but very sweet.  Can be a bit naughty and has bitten the vet a few times when having her nails cut. 
Likes: Goodies, snuggling inside sweatshirts being worn at the time and sleeping in the humans bed!  And particularly likes sitting in the sunshine!
Dislikes: Going to the vet!  And FEET!  Kara will not walk past any human feet if they are within about a metre and a half of her.

"Can I move yet, Mum?"


"Is this my best side?"


"Nothing like a bit of sun on your bum!"


"What? This is MY sun lounger!"

  2. Just read her history again! How appalling! And, again, what a transformation! She looks one happy dog, but I am not surprised that she is wary of feet! Goodness only knows what she had to endure! Such a great story! Lucky, lucky Kara to have found such a loving family! xxx Karin

  3. She's adorable. I believe that dogs that have had a bad beginning know and appriciate being part of a loving family. I'm so glad she ended up with you and I bet she is too.
