“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.”
― Vicki Harrison

In June 2021 Iivo went suddenly and unexpectedly very ill. Despite all efforts he passed away after 4 days in IC Unit. He had passed a complete health examination in Feb 2021 so it was quite a shock that autopsy revealed a very aggressive T-cell lymphoma which had rapidly metastasized to almost all his organs. Iivo was fighting hard but he didn't have a slightest chance. The Dog Of My Life was taken violently way too soon. <3

Iivo is the first born in Hilda’s first litter, sired by Exgate’s Unique Utah By Nelvis. Big, strong, independent and stubborn. Also very happy and always onto something. Iivo has a very strong pray drive and he could run after pray for hours. He is balanced, moderately angulated and he has oustanding movements with excellent reach and drive.

So far Iivo has been very healthy and he passed health screenings with flying colors in December 2019. Mental description (MH, gunshot proof) Iivo passed in August 2020.
