And for those interested in mental illness in dogs try this one: http://www.sfweekly.com/2007-03-07/news/psycho-dogs/
It is a long read but very informative. This is why knowing where your puppy comes from can be important. (If you are going the breeder route.)
Now for the cute photo portion of my post:
Dash is now listed on the frenchie rescue site as available for adoption. It is a good thing though I am a little sad. He is such a great dog and I have fallen abit for the little bugger. We will all miss him terribly. It is a happy occasion for him though as he will get his very own home and people to love. How great is that!
This is one of the first pics I ever saw of our boy Jack. He was 6 weeks old and still at the breeders home. (as he should be at that age) How could we not fall in love with him?
Here is what he grew into. 115 lbs of fluffy love. Yes he IS stunning isn't he? Before you run out and buy your own akita though, do some research first. They aren't a breed for everyone. (and double check your homeowners insurance)
And P.S. The longcoats require even MORE grooming than the regular coats.
