Good Karma for the Williams family

Docklands has its share of spoiled pooches but Karma of Yarra’s Edge has raised the bar significantly.

The three-year-old cavoodle (a cross between King Charles cavalier and poodle) has a lifestyle that most humans can only dream of.

When Karma’s family goes on holidays, she goes to Mornington Lodge where she has her own room known as the “Fluffy Suite” complete with couch and television.

“She’s a real princess,” said owner Janyne Williams. “We’ve brought her up more like a cat, so she’s spoiled rotten.”

Janyne then proceeded to give Karma a kiss and a cuddle … “Who’s the best bubby in the whole of Docklands?” she cooed.

Karma is obviously the most popular member of the Williams household – parents Mike and Janyne, daughter Bec and son Stephen – who live in Tower 4 at Yarra’s Edge.  Bec is a construction project co-ordinator on the ATO project in Collins St, Batman’s Hill.

Karma was purchased three years ago as a tiny fluff ball at a time when Janyne was quite ill.

“We called her Karma because she has been a tonic for my health and has brought so much happiness to our family,” Janyne said.

“She’s been therapeutic for everyone and Karma is so protective of me. When Mike comes to bed, she won’t let him in!”

“When we go out she sits and cries, so we leave the radio on in the apartment so she’s got some company.  She loves 3AW,” Janyne said.

Janyne said she recently crocheted a quilt for her mother-in-law.  “But Karma loved it so much, I gave it to her instead!” she said.

“She loves to get into the wool and her toys are strewn around the apartment.”

“Her favourite toy was a little chicken drumstick which has now, thankfully, lost its squeak.”

The Williams family moved from Dock 5 to Yarra’s Edge last October and Janyne reports that Karma likes it better.

“She’s happier here because she’s got a little spot in the sun,” she said.
