so i broke it into little pieces and used them as treats instead of rehydrating as food..... :S
We bathe Katsu 2-4 times a year as well, depending on how gross he gets.Edit: He's like Kaja too. He'll stand in it but he'll cling to us. He also usually tries to simply walk out of the bath once, but if we keep him from doing it, he stays put. He's pretty easy to bathe but he does NOT enjoy it haha.
Rollo is an absolute nightmare to bathe. We have had many bathroom battles to try and bathe him. The last time we bathed him he was teething, and lost a tooth in the process. The bathroom looked like a murder scene, and he ripped the tub faucet right out of the wall. We are going to take him to a groomer soon to have him bathed in a more controlled environment. He is NOT a water dog. Thankfully he never gets smelly and generally avoids mud. If he got dirty often and still hated water, life with him would be a real challenge!
@Kaja @TheYeti I got curious if Kaja and Katsu are related in any way. Along the way, I noticed that there aren't entries for Kaja and Rollo on http://www.shikoku-pedigree.com. Make it happen! :D (Either that, or I'm terrible at using search....)
I went ahead and added kaja to the data base. You can fill out the rest of the information if you'd like! http://www.shikoku-pedigree.com/details.php?id=64224
Decided to just go all of the above and alternate things. So far so good!Also quick question about coats, if anyone might be able to answer for me: Kaja is a year old now, so do Shikoku coat colours change much after a year old? I'm curious if she would be considered a red sesame, or a sesame (aka goma or goma). Thoughts?
@KevinDo88 I don't know what her classification would be for sure, no one has chimed in their thoughts. In the middle of her face is a mask that is red, and when she was a puppy all of her was that red... but when you look at her puppy photos, it was actually her face that had the most black in it! The colours reversed a bit as she got older.And yes! White patches will start to show up -- this is called the urajiro. From my understanding, you will see the white marking show up along what is called 'ventral' points. So the light points along the inside of the legs, the chest, the inside of the ears, the muzzle, and the tail will start to define themselves better. The line of the shoulders and neck also seems to lighten up compared to the rest of the body -- you can totally see this in Kaja's pictures as she gets older. Black and tan will also have the spots around their eyebrows that are light in color (Kaja has this too, just not super noticeable... it's more of a grey against the red on her face).When she was a puppy, she was classified as a 'red sesame'... though now I think she might be just a 'sesame'? :P
cool pic!The couple of times Meitou has been close to deer he hasn't noticed them. But he always seems to know exactly where the rabbits and squirrels are.
