    Oh my goodness! She's so cute! Gah, her face! And I love her name. It sounds pretty. Poor little thing being followed around by Kishin. ;) Meitou would have behaved the same way....plus probably humping. I'm excited for you and Shizuka. :)

    Oh, I am so glad this happened. :) Good decision, Shigeru!

    I will have a hard time not calling her Shizuku Tsukishima. I imagined someday getting a Shizuku to go with my Seiji (Amasawa)- but that wasn't how it played out.

    Thanks all! Shizu is doing great, she's very sweet and loves our daughter. Shizu has a lot to say too! lol

    Yes, a special thanks to @TheWalrus (Shigeru), he's a true friend.

    Shizu has been hanging out with the Kai pups (Hazuki and Kiko). I'll try to get some videos of them playing later today or tomorrow.

    She is pretty! I hope you will get some colored coats from her and Kishin.

    Do we know how the coat color combination works in this? Maybe there is only a 25% chance of getting a colored coat when bred to a white? At least in consideration that the parents of said white dog are also white dogs themselves.

    Something like this maybe:

    Shizu: cc ww
    Kishin: ww ww

    Wait...what color are her parents? Are they both Yushoku?

    Still working on getting these coat color combos figured out. =]

    I think Crispy figured it out and according to her calculations a kishin X Shizu litter would be all white.

    @ShikokuSpirit @Shishiinu

    If Shizu has the same inheritance as Nami (one white parent), it is safe to say that she is a carrier for recessive red (what we call "white").

    So... in the most simplified way,

    Shizu = Ee (E = wild type; e = recessive red)
    Kishin = ee

    They would have a 50/50 chance per puppy to be wild-type or recessive red and every wild-type puppy would be a carrier for recessive red. Nami has the same chance to have colored puppies when bred to a white dog.

    This is only looking at the recessive red gene, however. There may be other genes that contribute to white in the Japanese breeds and the Kishu Ken, specifically.
