    Alls I know is that "Caiza" means King or Emperor in German and I liked the name. Not sure if it is spelt right according to the meaning of it but I just like it the way it is :)

    Kharma/Karma means intended action, and is a dynamic concept. It is not fate or predestination, but a consequence of what has gone before. In other words, you are now in circumstances because of your thoughts and decisions, and this is an on-going process. That is, new actions create new Karma.http://www.buddha101.com/buddha101/p_karma.htm Most of the time she is Good Kharma; sometimes she is definitely Bad Kharma (especially if something or someone is threatening in any way), and when she is on the hunt, she is Instant Kharma :D And getting Kharma was a consequence of Buffy having been poisoned . . . someone didn't want to deal with Buffy; well, now they have to deal with Kharma - who is a niece/half-sister of Buffy . . . and infinitely more subtle in her getting over . . . :cool:

    Shiva: Shiva is the destroyer of the world, following Brahma the creator and Vishnu the preserver, after which Brahma again creates the world and so on. Shiva is responsible for change both in the form of death and destruction and in the positive sense of the shedding of old habits. In Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram or Truth, Goodness and Beauty, Shiva also represents the most essential goodness.

    Bimmer is extremely fast, more powerful than he looks, handles just beautifully, agile, nimble, and is the only one of the dogs who has ever ridden in the 750 - or is ever likely to, lol!

    Thank you, Kase :) I chose Kharma's name. Charley chose Shiva's, and I blame him for the majority of the mayhem and chaos she caused when she was a puppy. She was only trying to live up to her name :D

    Broken windows, totally destroyed a sectional, knocked a door off the hinges, hit the side of the Toyota truck so hard it dented, stood on the roof of the Mustang and caved it in, hit Charley in the knee so hard (when he was sitting down) that it stayed sore for three months . . . all without meaning to . . . . she is just a force of nature

    Oh, and pulled down a strand of barbed wire on the fence . . . That's just scary - she didn't even notice she'd run right through it!
