luka

I can’t believe that I have done 13 posts and not yet mentioned our beloved dog, Luka. She was a gift from Jerzy on my 40th birthday and now she is approximately 9½ years old. We got her from the SPCA and she is a cross between a Husky and a German Shepherd. She is the sweetest and gentlest dog you could ever meet and she still loves to play like a puppy. She is a wonderful companion and we can’t imagine our lives without her. Here is a photograph of Luka on a favourite hike of ours at Misery Bay on Manitoulin Island. Luka in the moss…

Hi Kate, Luka is a beautiful dog..

we are now the lucky folks who care for a young, blonde, second hand dog, Gabi... lovely dog... cross husky/lab.. she too is so gentle for her size... and her temperament so sweet.. I wonder if that comes from the husky.

Gwen...perhaps it does come from the husky. Or maybe it's the cross, but it seems that every husky/german shepherd I've met has had that sweet temperment. Aren't we lucky to have them in our lives!
