WrestleK / どすこい Feb. 20

When we took the afternoon walk, there's someone at that our favorite field.

I wanted Kaiya to run like crazy as much as she wanted since she's been hyper...thx to snow.

Well, bad timing...we went to the nearest dog park instead.

Yep, this place was too small for them to run at their full speed.  That's why they tended to wrestle more ;)

午後の散歩は いつもの広い空き地に先約がいたから その近くのドッグランへ。

いつも大人しいKaiyaが雪のおかげで 最近めちゃめちゃ元気いっぱいだから思いっきり走らせてあげたかったんだけどねぇ。

ここは狭いから思いっきり走れないみたいで 今日はドスコイな遊びが多かった〜( ´▽`)

Look at Kaiya's face when she's wrestling....very expressive.  lol

Girls are strong and tough ;)))

どすこい中のKaiyaの表情が豊かなこと(笑)

Not enough! / 遊び足りない! Feb. 19

It was snowing so much this morning!

Our morning walk routine is to stop by the dog park first then move on.

Chili didn't come today so after the dog park, we took a bit different way to go round.

When I was thinking to go home, suddenly Kaiya stopped and refused to go home.

I knew exactly why she did that...the direction she was indicating was where the dog park was.

She wanted to go back to the dog park to play more ;))

My baby girl gets so hyper when it snows and never gets enough of it!

Yes, we went back to the dog park. lol

Although he didn't seem like in the mood to run and play, Mato was being very kind to her ;)))

朝めっちゃ雪降ってたよぉ〜!

毎朝ドッグランにまず立ち寄ってから先に進むのが定番お散歩コース。

今朝はシリィが来なかったから いつもとは違う道を通って散歩して 帰ろうとしていたら いきなりKaiyaが帰宅拒否!!

あぁ・・・Kaiyaが行きたいと言う方向にはさっき行ったドッグラン。

まだ遊び足りなんだって(笑)

雪が降るとテンション上がりまくるKaiyaだなぁ〜。

ってことで 2回目ドッグランで MatoもKaiyaに付き合わされて 追いかけっこしてた朝でしたん(*´∀`*)

Kaiya non stop / Kaiya 止まらな〜い Feb. 18

We walked to Solna to the bigger dog park on Sunday morning :)

No one was there and both Kaiya and Mato absolutely enjoyed running and their chasing game.

日曜の朝は隣町の広いドッグランへ 。

誰もいなかったから 思う存分走り回ったKaiyaとMato。

Kaiya was out of control!

As soon as we got here, she got hyper and tired to get Mato play and run with her.

Even after Mato stopped playing with her, she went on and ran like crazy!! ;)))

Kaiyaがめちゃめちゃ 元気モリモリ。

ここに着いてから即Matoを誘うとそっからノンストップ。

Matoが相手するのやめても 1人で走り回る〜( ^∀^)

Norwegian Buhund / ノルウェジアン・ブーフント Feb. 17

Do you know Norwegian Buhund?

When we were taking a walk yesterday, I was asked if Kaiya and Mato were Norwegian Buhund.

I've never heard of that breed.

I told her they were Kai ken and then she said "they look so alike!"

It got me curious, so I googled real quick.  But the first pictures which came up were creamy colored dogs.

Hmm... I just didn't understand why she said that they looked alike...

This morning when we were taking a walk, a lady with a black dog asked me from behind what kind of breed Kaiya and Mato were.

Kai ken, answered I.  Then she said " I though they were Norwegian Buhund like mine right here."

Whaaaat!! It was only yesterday I got to know the existence of this breed, and I got to see the real one today!

He had a white spot on his chest but some Kais have that, too.  Mato also has 10 pieces of white hair on his chest. lol

When I looked closer, I found him little bigger and more sturdy than my Kais and his tail was curly and thinner, I think.

Over all, they are very similar...same spitz type with long muzzle, prick ears, long legs...pretty much the same body form.

I asked if it's ok to take some photos of him and she asked me the same, too.   We took some photos of each other's dogs then we said bye.

It was an interesting morning.

After we got home, I googled again about  Buhund, but deeper this time.

Yep, there are black ones like I saw this morning.  Plus, Buhund and Kai ken has more in common and I'm fond of this breed now ;)

ノルウェジアン・ブーフントって知ってる??

昨日散歩をしていた時に "この子たちは ノルウェジアン・ブーフント?" って尋ねられたんだぁ。

私 初めて聞いた名前の犬種だわぁ〜。

うちの子たちは甲斐犬だよって答えたら "すごく似てるなぁ〜" って。

そんなに似てるのかと思ってすぐにちょっと検索したら 真っ先に出てきたのがクリーム色の犬の写真ばかりで そんなに似てないじゃん?なんて思っていたのが昨日。

今朝の散歩の途中黒い犬を連れた人に後ろから "その子たちは 何犬?" って声をかけられた。

甲斐犬だよって 答えたら "この子と同じ ノルウェジアン・ブーフントかと思った!" って・・・ 

えぇぇぇ〜!!! 昨日の今日で初めて知って初めて本物見れた。

しかもこの子は黒い子で すんごく似てる〜!!!!!

胸に白い毛があったけど 甲斐犬もそういう子いるしねぇ。Matoも10本くらい白毛胸にあるし(笑)

よく見るとうちの子たちより 少し大きめがっしりしてて 尻尾は甲斐犬より細めで巻尾。

でも同じスピッツタイプだから マズルが長めで耳が立ってて足長くて 体のフォームは同じ感じ。

せっかくだから 写真撮らせてもらったら 向こうもうちの子たちの写真を撮らせてって お互い似た犬種の写真を撮って バイバイしたよぉ〜!( ´∀`)

うちに帰ってきてから 今度はもう少し真剣に調べたらちゃんと黒いブーフント出てきた〜!

甲斐犬に似ているところが多くて なんだか親近感が湧いたわん(⌒▽⌒)
