Another of our dear Power Howler litter of Chinooks has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. Tullibardine Nunavut called "Nuna" was sired by Tullibardine Power out of Tullibardine Red Sparkle. Initially sold as a pet, she came back to us, accused of being "autistic." We were happy indeed to get her back and to keep her forever. Personally I found Nuna one of the nicest-natured Chinooks in my entire experience. Obedient, quiet, dog-social and personable, what was not to like about Nuna? She and her sister Queenie became constant companions — I called them "the holy innocents."
Nuna succumbed to metastatised mammary cancer at age eleven years and eight months. Her sister Queenie will be desolated and Susan and I shall miss Nuna's quiet happy personality.
