Dear Optimists,

She’s really not that big, Mum’s new black Labrador. But when an average-sized dog thinks she’s still a tiny puppy when she jumps on top of you to cuddle, she’s humungous! My bum still hurts from being floored by the beast.

Her name is Kamma. Not really, though, because the Icelandic family who had her before named her Karma. Thing is, Icelandic people have big problems pronouncing “karma” and it took her a while to recognise Mum saying her name (although she had no trouble recognising the sound of food!)

Even though they have such pronunciation problems, nobody can deny that in this case, Karma is a bitch.

    1. Fun thing is that how I illustrated her is actually the way she sit. She doesn’t sit like a normal dog. God, she doesn’t do anything typical dog.
