Hello from the Falkland Islands

Hello my name is Karla

I was born in chile in 2002 and went to live in the Falkland Islands which is a British colony in 2013. My native lenguage is spanish and my second lenguage is english, even though in a couple of years i would have lived in the Falklands for longer that I´ve lived in my born country which could technically make my first lenguage English (If it worked that way).

The Fakland Islands is such a beautiful place to live, its full of wild life and it´s full of some of the most wonderful people, everyone is extremly kind and trustworthy. Here in the Falklands our houses, cars are left open, you can forget your phone in the park and it will still be there by the time you realise that you lost it or it gets taken to the police station so that the police can get in contact with the rightful owner. We are a population of 3000 its pretty easy to find the rightful owner (there are facebook groups that have more 3000 pleople in them.)

Since there is only 3000 and its on the southern hemisphere by the atlantic ocean close to the south of Argentina, the weather is pretty cold and not a lot to do since its only a small city with 3000 pleople, for enternaintment I like to take walks with a nice puffy coat and my dog; her name is mica she is an 9 year old Hunterway (very classic dog for the falklands) She was adopted from one of the local farms when sha was only 3 months old. She used to be very friendly and energetic but now she is as bit old and doesnt like to walk for very long :frowning: so as a family we decided to adopt a little kitten to join our family her name is Albondiga (meatball in english) and what a pair they are, always playing around and causing havock.

I have a lot of expirience with animals since my dog suffers from alergies on her tummy and has to take regular medication for it. The Falkland Islands has great regulation on pets; dogs have to get regularly checked by the government Vetenerian to see if they are fit and healthy and to guide you on what to do if they are showing problems. And people can call the vetenerian if there is suspected abandonment or lack of interest. If the pet owner is abusing the animal (as in physical abuse, malnurishment and not taking it out for walks.)
