Kara

A little more about Kara.  We've had her since the end of October, 2002 - She was driven to Syracuse and we picked her up there and drove home.  She fits in well and gets along with the golden retriever - at least, they tolerate each other.  Kara is fixated on FOOD and I think, if given the chance, she would eat until she burst! She doesn't get the chance - LOL - and once she gained the 10 pounds she needed,  we've managed to keep her weight under control.  She probably never had enough food in her earlier life.  

Kara is an itchy dog and came to us on Prednisone and is still on a small dose. Everytime I've tried to cut it down she ends up with no coat and I don't want to put her through that again.  We've done an elimination diet and she is not sensitive to food but to something in the atmosphere - we don't know what.   

On New Year's Day 2005, she became ill and suffered from acute pancreatitis in the hospital for 6 days, but she seems to have recovered although I now keep an eye on how much fat is in her food.  She is bossy - never barks outside, but at me when she wants something - mostly more food.  When I come home in the evening, she greets me at the door and then runs to the kitchen and starts barking for her dinner. She has certainly filled the hole left by our previous Irish and we thank the GTISC and Deanna Cuchario for the opportunity to have her in our home.

Update from her owners in June 2013:  Just to let you know that we had to let Kara go yesterday due to age related health issues. She's left a huge hole here and was such a sweet girl. We loved having her with us for the last 10 1/2 years. Thank you. Beverly
