The girls don't care that I feel like garbage. They need to know why they haven't gone on walkies yet.

So many people asked if Cúchulainn was a Korean Jindo Dog today at Obon Festival here in Portland... Kishu Ken (native to Japan) and Jindo Gae (native to Korea) have quite a few similarities, and some individuals from either breed can have overlapping traits, or look like they belong to the opposite breed, but in general, Kishu are going to be more "angular" or "sharper" while Jindo will be "softer" or "rounder" in their features.

Other traits separate them, but it may be too.much to get into in an Instagram post... #kishuken #kishudog #kishu #kishuinu #Japanesedog #dog #dogs #nihonken #rarebreed #yushokukishu #primitivedog #responsiblebreeding #obonfest #pdx #pdxdogs #dogsofinstagram #oregonbuddisttemple #akiyamanoroushya

Mr. Kai left us on Monday. He gets to go on his first great adventure on a road trip back home.

Kai-guy and his siblings got their vaccinations, their 3rd dewormer rounds, and their health certs. Cost was 260 total for just this round of vet visits.

To date, I have spent 1300 dollars on this litter, alone, at the vet. Almost the cost of a puppy itself. I will likely spend the full 1500 by the time the last puppy leaves.

5 puppies is the usual litter size. I also take a minimum of 2 months out of work to rear the puppies responsibly and effectively. So while I am raising your puppy, I usually am not making any money of my own.

Breeding is a labor of love, not a get-rich-quick scheme.

Kai-guy and Bubba having fun in the nice weather today. Another Kishu owner from Washington came all the way down to visit us with her friend!

Before my tags, I would like to talk a little about breeding -- and what it takes to breed your animals.

Breeding animals is, and should be, a calculated effort one takes to replicate something cherished and desired by others, as well as themselves. Something that cannot be replicated, otherwise.

All of my puppies are generally sold before I breed so I know all of them will be accounted for. As Kishu Ken are rare in the US and every dog is valuable from a preservation standpoint, I do not encourage owners to surgically alter their pets, but do have them sign a contract outlining standards of behavior, a nonbreeding compliance, and what I will hold myself accountable for if their puppy ever falls ill.
From the moment they are conceived, these puppies are someone else's - and that is a great burden, at times, to know I am taking care of someone else's puppy. They are trusting me to rear that puppy well and keep them safe until they come of age to be transported.

If you don't that's stressful, also consider this: breeding responsibly loses you money. To produce this litter, I spent 3300 importing the sire from Japan as there were no compatible males available to me in the United States. I was fortunate as I got the dam "for free" (in that she was born in my home), but pre-breeding fees totalled around 500. I have spent around 150 on kibble for the mother during the nearly 4 weeks the puppies have been with us, and around 50 on supplements (fish oil, cottage cheese, pumpkin, and other dietary additives.) Dewormer mom and pups have got so far has totaled around 75 USD. Flights for puppies are generally around 300, with the crate, when things are said and done. Registration fees with NIPPO are around 130-160 for the whole litter. If Genotypes are run, that is 130 per puppy. Plus 700 spent in dog shows and sports or breed booths so far this year... I will probably get around 3400 for this litter, total. If you think breeding gets you money, you are sorely mistaken. Sometimes, maybe, you break even.

Part kangaroo, part dingo, all Cúchulainn. He went on a big outing today and now it's naptime.
