Daughter and Son In Law got a new pup the other day. It's a cut Japanese breed of hunting dog, with tail that curves up, when parked?, over the back.
Wife's maternal instincts kicked in. It was instant love, so now I've got to get her one, which are scare as hen's teeth.
I like the little fella too. He'll give our present dog a companion
He tried to get the cats to play by bringing his chew toys and dropping them in front of them and nosing them around. He's decided the cats are good fer nuthin but lets them curl up, in the dog house, with him when it is cold, to keep him and them warmer.

Yeah, that's an Akita, there is a fantastic movie "A Dog Named Hachi," he used to go to the RR station with him. He was so dedicated to his owner, he left home and lived at the RR station, the last place he saw him and stayed there. If you daughter has not seen it, you could buy the DVD and give it to them... One of the best movies we have seen.

train it RIGHT AWAY and get it friendly with people. They can be aggressive. Take it everywhere possible into all kinds of situations.

BTW, not trying to hijack the breed. They are loyal and adore their family. But, always go in with your eyes wide open...not just your heart.

It is an awesome movie. Be sure to give your daughter a box of Kleenex with the movie.

It is based on a true story.

Might want to wait awhile and watch how your son's dog progresses. If it is an Akita and not a Shiba, it will be a handful. These dogs are huge and wonderful dogs if raised by the right hands--get careless with an Akita and you can have some real problems. The adult size of an Akita would give me some concern.

okay, you want to fall in love...look into the eyes of a Cavalier King Charles. Perfect temperment...but get a GOOD breeder! Many have heart issues. But, they are darling. Just remember, the dog should fit your lifestyle. There are resources on the AKC website to assist choosing a breed. Be careful. And go to the local animal shelter, NOT a pet shop.

IMO. Sorry for the soapbox. Been burnt.
