Karla keeps me active and constantly on the go. She is so active and persistent that she rarely just wants to lie around and relax. I credit her with keeping me as fit as I am. Living on a 75-acre ranch that backs up to open state range gives Karla plenty of room to do what she loves most: hunting.

She'll hunt just about anything that moves including bear, beaver and even an occasional big cat. I've even seen her chase deer until she just couldn't keep up. Once she has something cornered she'll keep it at bay until I arrive, either for the kill or to release it. She doesn't mind letting it go if I give the command. Her victory is in holding it until I get there.

It's for that reason I rarely let her go hunting without me as she'll hold a prey at bay for hours on end. However, occasionally I will let her have some freedom to do her thing. When she fails to return home I usually know what's happening and find myself listening for her high pitch "I've got something over here" bark and hurry to release her prey so she can return home.

I once had to set out and find her after she had been gone most of the afternoon. I surmised that she probably had a young deer backed into a canyon or a Bobcat up a tree. However, what I found was a pretty good size black bear that had come down from the mountain that she was bound and determined to hold until I got there. This bear was becoming a bit irritated and tired and just wanted to get the heck out of there. But, true to form, Karla was nipping at its feet and nose and wasn't about to let such a prize get away until I witnessed what she had caught. Once I had called her off, that bear took off in a run and never even thought of looking back. Karla was content and we talked about it all the way back to the house.
