While Aiko is looking rather moth-bitten (still blowing coat), we ventured out to the Brisbane Lure Coursing Club meet. As you can tell by the picture, Aiko absolutely loves Lure Coursing. We just love seeing the dogs have this much fun.
We're very proud to announce that Aiko earned the final pass required for her Junior Coursing Title and can now be known as Ilsonyo Crimson And Clover JC.
To the best of our research, it would seem Aiko is the only Shiba in Australia with a Lure Coursing Title!
This past weekend, we decided to give Lure Coursing a go with Aiko (Ilsonyo Crimson And Clover).
Aiko took to the lure like a duck to water. She squealed with excitement every time the lure began to move.
Proud to say, her enthusiasm was rewarded with her first "Pass" in Junior Courser.
We look forward to more weekends Lure Coursing with Aiko while she works on growing her coat back for the Show Ring.
This past weekend, we attended our first away shows in over 12mths - our team represented by Aiko (Ilsonyo Crimson And Clover). Aiko brought home 2x Best of Breeds with competition.
We are very proud of the way Aiko's performance is coming along, with this weekend being only her 2nd time attending a show. I give enormous credit to Aiko's owner, Dan, for the work he put in to early socialisation.
At the Caddo Kennel Club of Texas, Mika obtained the final points she required to be known as AMERICAN CHAMPION Kuromika Akakiyosou!!
We are beyond thrilled and are ever so grateful to Mika's Breeder/Co-Owner Leslie Anderson (Lesand/Akakiyosou Shiba - USA) for sharing her with us.
Mika was beautifully presented to her title by Chris Ann Moore.

Introducing "Freddie" & "Arnie".
Neither of these boys are available, but we all need a little cute to end the day, right?
The boys were born on the 27th July 2020 and today had their first venture to the outdoor puppy area. Both were very confident.
Can we unsubscribe to 2020 yet?
2020 is not panning out to be the year any of us had planned. Covid has seen Megan working from home since March (not complaining!) & Dog Shows almost non-existent (am complaining). Without Dog Shows we have had ample time at home which has given us the opportunity to make upgrades to our home & yard &, of course, finally put the finishing touches on our Website!
2020 is not all doom & gloom for us, Watch this space for some exciting shiba inu & puppy news!
