However when I bought
Kokomo the Border collie home some 2 years later, Sativa was most decidedly
the smoking dog- a catalyst to a new life
separated, lonely and needed to get out and meet new people. My
children were at the age were they had their friends and I was not
needed as much as I had been. My children for years had been begging
for a dog and cat but I had allergies and put them off till I found
a nutritional company that helped rebuild my system, then one day
my oldest daughter Tabytha got in the car with her t-shirt meowing.
Once I saw this beautiful gray and white tinny perfect kitty that
we named Sativa, I could not say no, which is what she was counting
Kokomo chose me, it
took forever to find a Border collie breeder, I love the breed and I had
3 border collies in the past. But when I did find her she climbed up into
my neck and cried, our bond quickly formed, we were made for each other.
The breeder was going to be on the Vickie Gabareau Show, Kokomo sat on
Vickies lap the whole interview and Vickie was going to hand over
Kokomo to me at the end of the show.
With her fame in place Kokomo and I started going to coffee shops so I
could get out and about and start meeting people. I was always used to
going into coffee shops and sitting having coffee and leaving, but having
a dog renegades you to the patio. Smokers, although I am not one, as I
am an Asthmatic, are very friendly people, and sitting there with such
a cute, adorable, bundle of pure joy that who could resist her! From the
very first day sitting outside Galligers on Austin Road, Kokomo would
have an impact so enormous that my life was never to be the same again.
The guys name is Bill, a local guy who loves animals and was very intuitive
to talk with. Over the next three years we would spend many an hour talking
about many subjects and he would give me constructive feedback on my business
at the time, The Art of Positive Living a personal development
Kokomo loved him, when he was walking across the street towards the coffee
bar she would go crazy, her bum wiggling from side to side, jumping up
and down, and almost crying in her anticipation to see him. Did I read
how important Bill would be in my life through Kokomo, no, we were just
Over the next two and a half years Bill and I started a company called
"Cyclzone Technologies" a revolutionary new software driven
digital electric motordrive system that will replace the combustion engine
everywhere. Now the company is on the verge of going worldwide and making
history, who would have known it back then. Kokomo did. Kokomo knew that
Bill and would be friends, business partners and through the journey realize
we were in love.
Now I have a happy dog, she gets three walks a day with Bill, home made
food cooked for her by me, and an abundance of love form the both of us
all the time.
Why is Kokomo called the Smoking Dog? Well light up a cigarette and watch
her perform, jumping, and twisting chasing the smoke entertaining any
one that will watch and you have a dog with purpose. Dont worry
her lungs are fine, she does not inhale, but to her this is her job and
she takes it very seriously.
Our company Cyclzone Technologies would never have been formed with out
Kokomo, I would never have found my soul mate with out Kokomo the world
would not have a solution to pollution with out Kokomo. She is our child,
our hero our lucky charm, and is the true founder of our industry because
with out her I would not have met the brilliant innovator of the new motor
and seen the true potential to pursue it. You can say this is a dog driven
So remember that animals will open up your life in so many ways, not only
with their love devotion and dedication, but with the intuitive wisdom,
that some times is out of reach to us. Embrace a dog and then let life
embrace you, you will not forget it, nor believe in how it call so radically
change your life only for the better.
