Several of the area Hokkaido owners near Portland had a little meetup at one of the AKC’s FSS Open shows (dog show for Foundation Stock breeds). Umma, Miki and Ashitaka, along with their Kishu friends, got to spend a day together playing show dog. Here’s a few photos of the event:
This is the first appearance Hokkaido have made in any AKC rings. They are a bit larger and a bit busier as show dogs compared to Shibas in that it is hard for mine to learn to be still. They are almost always on the move!
