According to Luka:

1. I am a kind Tsarina who treats my subjects fairly and with love, as long as you don’t ever dare to cross me!

2. There are no strangers – I must greet everyone.

3. Everyone needs gentle love and attention from their Supreme Ruler.

World's Cutest Polar Bear

For Luka’s 1st Halloween, she went a polar bear and had three penguins to snack on.

 

Likes:

• Prancing through snow and biting tails.

• Thanksgiving turkey! Or any free-range hand-fed poultry that has been cooking for 2+ hours.

• Resting my heavy head (it’s hard carrying a crown) on tables, chairs, and human or K9 subjects.

She's a Pocket-sized Samoyed

While being quite the authoritative supreme ruler, Luka is half the size of her other four littermates. Weighing only 37 lbs, which is quite small for a Samoyed.

She was not the runt of the litter (obviously, that’s not royal behavior), but perhaps due to her selective, sophisticated palate she’s never bulked up the way the others have.

 

Dislikes:

• TRAINS! They are scary, loathsome vial monsters that I am working to have eradicated from my kingdom.

• Suitcases; it means Mom might be leaving and that is unacceptable.

• Sharing with Talus; I’m a Tsarina! Tsarinas don’t share.

The Village of Luka

Given her Siberian heritage it seemed only right to give her a Eastern European name. So, Luka is named for the village of Luka, but please don't tell her that. She thinks it is an old royal family name.
