Tundra

Tucoldturain’s Tundra SD

April 17th 2005 – November 25th 2011 While recovering from surgery at our vet clinic, and through a combination of errors, Tundra managed to escape her kennel, and was wandering loose in the clinic when the janitor came by early in the morning on Friday. A door to the outside was not closed, and Tundra found her way out. She was heading west of town, (perhaps looking for her way home) when she was struck and killed by a vehicle. The driver never stopped. She was found in the ditch beside the local cemetery by a vet tech who was heading to the clinic for work. We brought her home to say our goodbyes. She was put on the front of the quad for one last run with the team, and when it was over a chance for another goodbye from her litter mates, her team mates and Hugi, her Dad. She was then cremated. Sweetheart, we love you, and will always miss you. Thank you for being the most wonderful and trusting friend anyone could ever hope to find.


Tundra was the last born of our Snowmachine litter. She had a bubbly personality and busy little body. Tundra had proven herself to be a reliable, hard working lead dog.
