NIPPO Gunma Branch Tenrankai 2014 Autumn

Gunma is just over 200km away, so not a NIPPO regional that we in Chiba go to all the time, but this time there were quite a few of us making the trip. The weather was supposed to be stormy, so I prepped all my cold weather rain gear. Needless to say it was not a comfortable day, but the weather was beautiful.

Here's Mumu produced by Nidai Iwahori Sou. She's just entered the wakainu 1 class, and is looking terrific.

I took Akane, Goji, and Taka to the show, but did not enter anyone. This was just a tune up for the upcoming regionals, and socialization for the puppies.

Meme, another female bred by Nidai Iwahori Sou. She took 1st place in class at the NIPPO Grand National last year, and many other first place finishes in class at regionals. She took first again today in the Souken class.

A black sesame male out of Izumo Yano Sou lines.

The rear end of a Kishu.

A yushoku Kishu male.

The rare sesame Shiba.

All in all it was a long but very good day, and worth the drive.

  1. I really like the way Mumu is built. Her expression is very attractive, too.

    ...but there needs to be at least ten times more Kishu tongue!
