“My friend gave me two dachshunds to be with me, to put on my belly and warm my knee,” she said. “I said, ‘they’re a little small, that looks like an accessory, not like a dog.’”
So Karan took a trip to a pet store and got herself a brown chocolate lab. “I call him Steph, like Stephan [Weiss, her late husband],” she said. “But in my condition, it wouldn’t be too cool to have three puppies. The two Dachshunds are back with my friend in Sun Valley waiting for me. I thought it would be cool to name the two Cash and Mere because you wear them around you.”
Karan said she is on such a speedy recovery that she has plans to go to a yoga retreat in Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos next month, and she wants to travel a lot more in the near future. She has plans to go to St. Barth, Africa, Fiji and Australia.
“I am trying to figure out everything I can do if I can’t ski,” she said. “I love deep sea diving because it really is another world, and it’s very inspirational for resort.”
For now, she has a more immediate challenge to sort out — how to take her bow at the finale of her Collection runway show on Friday.
“I am a little uncomfortable going out there like this; I have to probably be in a wheelchair,” she said. “Maybe I won’t come out, maybe I will just peek at the end of the show. I don’t know. There’s no question I can’t go on my crutches backstage. I have to be very centered and very controlled to walk on crutches so that nobody can hit me. But with those crowds, I am a little nervous.”
