After weeks of growing anticipation, I finally got to meet our Karma in person! Lionheart Buona Karma di Costa Bel, Karma for short, was “delivered” to us today by Brian Martin of Lionheart Cane Corso. In order to return from our Tahitian vacation, I had to fly in to Los Angeles to make a our connection flight into Miami. After brainstorming with Brian about the best way to bring Karma home, we agreed that Brian would fly from Sacramento to Los Angeles to meet us in the American Airlines terminal. Some strategic planning came into play here since he needed to be on our same airline in order to be allowed in the same terminal as us. We also had to make sure the timing was just right so we wouldn’t miss each other. Luckily, with a little good karma (heeheeheeheehee) and the help of the travel gods, everything worked out perfectly!
I want to thank Brian, not only for making the VERY early flight out to Los Angeles and spending the whole day hanging out there, but more importantly for all the time and effort he spent in facilitating our choice of puppy. Brian Martin and Jordan Atkinson, Brian’s bride-to-be, were absolutely amazing to work with throughout the entire negotiation and selection process that took place before Karma came home with us. We were blessed to bring home Lionheart Cane Corso’s pick bitch from their first litter of pups, born from Champion Mar e Sol’s Capone and Grand Champion Gator Country’s Valentina. Because we were traveling in Tahiti, it was impossible for us to pick our puppy in person. However, Brian and Jordan worked endlessly to provide us with photos, video footage and Volhard Puppy Aptitude Testing on video so that I could make the right decision about our new girl. It was refreshing to find a breeder, such as Lionheart Cane Corso, who was so easy and ethical to work with AND at the same time produced what we consider to be an outstanding litter of puppies. Picking our girl was terribly difficult and we truly believe that we could not have gone wrong with any puppy in this awesome litter! Thank you, Brian and Jordan, for trusting us with this special girl and for all your efforts to make this such a perfect and smooth beginning to a long-lasting relationship!
Below are our favorite photos from meeting Brian & Karma at the Los Angeles airport! She is absolutely gorgeous and we are incredibly happy to welcome her to the Costa Bel Cane Corso family! Enjoy!
