So last week I visited my friend Ogawa-san to take a look at two recent litters of Kai pups. He told me there was a lot of brindle in both litters, and he wasn't joking.
This is Hide, the sire of the next litter.
This entire litter is full of brindle pups. The darkest will probably still end up a chu-tora. The lightest pup is a female, she's the little one in the back.
I was treated to a terrific lunch.
This is Koyuki, a kuro-goma Shikoku female. She's still under a year old, but is a really friendly, relaxed dog. Terrific temperament.
Another pic of the little pups. I'll have to go see them again soon once they're more mobile.
