Just hanging out with my handsome boy Kumason.

Akita Dog Butter Licker

Himeko my female Akita has an affinity for butter. I heard her licking something and when I went into the kitchen, this is what I saw.


Akita Dog Watches Herself on TV

Here is Himeko who is almost 3 years old watching herself play with her best friend Kumason who is 6 1/2. They play very rough and while Kumason is 105 pounds and she is 82 pounds, he is very careful not to hurt her.


Akita Dog Watches Formula 1

Himeko and I are enjoying watching Formula 1 Monaco, both rooting for Lewis Hamilton. She watched the entire race with me.


Removing Tick From Dog

I am removing a tick that I found crawling on Kumason. I'm glad he's white because it was easy to spot.


Dremeling Akita's Nails (6 1/2 years old)

Kumason likes when I dremel his nails. He is very food motivated so putting cream cheese inside his bone works well. I started dremeling Kumason's nails when he was about 12 weeks old. It was not so easy at first as he was very scared of the dremel. With patience, perseverance and a high value treat, he gradually learned to enjoy and look forward to his pedicures.

Removing Tick from Akita Dog
