At the right some pictures from Luca as puppy (thanks to Janneke van Rijn - The Tender Tempest)

Hi, I'm Luca. My official name is "Lycky Finn The Tender Tempest".
I am born on August 26, 2010 in the city Emmer Compascuum.
I am, like my predecessor Timmi, a Sheltie or better yet a Shetland Sheepdog.
Like most other residents of these islands we are small (but brave).

My mother's name is Tiffany and my father’s is Matti, but that and more can be seen and read on my 'Pedigree page '.
Because my father lives in Sweden, the owners of my mother choose "Lycke" as the 'litter-name'. That’s ‘Lucky’ in Swedish.
With my mother lives Maartje and she also was, at the same time, in expectancy. Her litter has received the name "Lucky".
My mother Tiffany and her friend Maartje are more or less related - they have the same Grandma: Ruschka ("Veruschka von den Eichen Garnicher").
I mention this because Maartje then was pregnant from Kevin and that Kevin is also the father of my friend and mate Kenji. So basically we are very distantly related.

According to my owners I am a ' real Sheltie '. I find family and friends very important, but I keep initially some distant to strangers. Only when my owners find it’s not too scary I'll consider to get closer to take a cautious look. If I then decide to like you, I prefer that you stay with me and if you leave and come back later I am the happiest Sheltie on the planet.

I’m not affright from water, but I'd rather walk around the pools on the street You shouldn’t spray water on me or, even worse, say I should go for a swim – although, if it’s been very hot then swimming isn’t that so crazy yet. If one of my owners threatens to drown, I'm the first one to jump into the water to rescue him or her.

I’ve done obedience courses with my owners. I was very good at it and I have won several awards. When I passed all the exams from the local ‘Dog Club’ we went practicing for the national exam. That wasn’t what I expected it to be – I had to do things that I don't care for like ‘retrieve’ in the open air and the rest went so slow that I got bored. We’ve stopped that training.

But I still do sports: Agility. I find that great fun. In the beginning some obstacles were very scary – because I have fear of heights – but now I know it's all very sturdy built, I do them without any fear. I am also quite fast, but because I have some minor issues with a knee, I’m not allowed to do the ‘poles' too quickly and also I jump 'low' while I'm big enough for 'medium' (which is even compulsory for official matches, so I don't do that).

My boss takes pictures and videos and that can be seen on the internet. On the other pages of this site you'll find the links.

Best regards,
Luca
