The Millionth Shikoku Puppy Post

I will post this here so I can link it and not have my mailbox swamped by requests for Shikoku puppy pictures. Looks like I haven't blogged in a month!

From left to right... Female 1 (darkest), Male, Female 2 (white tip paw), Female 3
 This is the lone male. Friendly little guy.
 This is female 1.
 Ummm look at the camera guys???
It's raining out there, so more pics will have to wait for better weather.

I'm Ready For Spring

Winter's great. Living in a climate with 4 distinct seasons is great. I'm ready for spring!

It was a pretty warm day today, perfect for chilling outside with the pups. After all the rain yesterday they needed to stretch their legs. Wish I could go surf or hunt or work on the cabin, but it's tax season. Gotta get that done. Been saying that to myself for a while now anyway.

Boar, Boar, More Boar

Finally had a day without much scheduled, figured I'd be able to play catch up... got home late last night from work in Tokyo, walked the dogs, answered some mail, crashed at 2am. First phone call came in at 7am. Boar in trap. Shot it, bled it.

Got home, thought maybe I could squeeze in a nap somewhere today, but no go. All in all had to deal with 5 boar today. Didn't get much done other than that. Well, did take Karen with me to take a peek at some trapped boar. She's been out with me and Baron a few times, and I know she hunts, but just needs as much experience as I can get her. Here she is seeing trapped boar for the first time today.

Nice to see that I've got a second gen hunter coming up to take Baron's place when he retires. In other news, bred Baron today to another hunter's female. Hopefully we'll have a litter in a couple months. All you hunters out there waiting for Baron pups, fingers crossed!
