I'm a Japanese/Australian born in Kanagawa, Japan. A translator by trade, I hunt, breed, and show the Nihon Ken.
That's a cool idea. I found this blogger site you might like - it lists the top popular Japanese dog names and other Japanese names for cats, babies, people etc.
AWESOME! We had chosen the name Goro (after Goro Masamune) for Ayu's pup #5 a while back! :) ChoCho and Goro sounded pretty cute.
She likes to run as hard as the other dogs and is getting use to the handling of her wheels. This video is from her first 3 days in the new chair, she has gotten the hang of it and doesnt tip over so often now. http://female-dog-names.net/
