The dogs are making it through the summer, just barely. We humans are just trying to jump from aircon to aircon to beach. Anyway, since I haven't posted much this year, just working on getting back in the groove of blogging. I've got more about the Nihon Ken to say.
I don't think I put this picture up yet, but this is a Kai male I saw at the KKA national show in April. For the first time in a long time I saw a Kai I quite liked in type.
And just throwing these pics in here from a month or so ago. This is Koto, a female out of Bunta x Chacha (born here at my house). Hopefully she can be shown at the Grand National this year. Prep for that is already in full swing...
It sure ain't easy to produce the type of dogs you want, and it surely takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. I guess that's a large part of what keeps us going though.
