(Fin Ch Lumiturpa Nörri x WW02 Sulyka Mischa at Elbereth)

26/4/2000 to 15/10/11

Tuukka a gentle giant – who became the foundation sire at TabanyaRuu, one of the special dogs who made huge impact of those who knew him, and of course to Liz and her family.

Big handsome boy – who oozed masculinity.  Liz always had a thing about the flashy marked pups in my litters – but even though Tuukka was one of the darkest pups in this litter he won her heart.

Sadly an injury when young meant he had to have major orthopedic work in middle age – and thanks to the “Bionic vet” – Noel Fitzpatrick he was pain free for a number of years – but sadly the medication put a heavy toll on his body and he left us far too young.
