We participated in a special dog show.
The 134th Tokushima Branch and the 86th Shikoku Union Dog Show, held in the spring of the fifth year of the Reiwa era.
The dogs from our group kennel participated together. Let me introduce the dogs that competed this Dog Show.
"Ashu Kuro Koroku-go"
This is a small black dog that came all the way from Kumamoto Prefecture.
This dog is a very great dog that has received the title of "Kansei-Ken"(Finished Dog).
The title of "Kansei-Ken" is a very prestigious one, and can be obtained by winning the Nippo Honbu-sho Award (the highest award) 6 times at several dog shows with strict conditions.
The Kansei-Ken will be entitled to participate in the NIPPO Grand National, but will not be allowed to participate in the regionals.
Therefore, I entered the competition not as a dog to be judged, but as a dog for reference.
No.81 "Ashu no Megami-go" in Ashu Otani So" kennel
Participated in the Yo-Ken class and won the Yo-Ken-sho award.
We are really looking forward to this little one's future.
No.84 "Ashu no Aine-go" in "Ashu Otani So" kennel.
This one is a first-timer.
We usually call this one "Homare".
Despite being little, it worked really hard.
No.141 "Sawagiku hime-go" in "Yame Oshima So" kennel.
Participated in the Seiken-Kumi small class and came from Fukuoka Prefecture.
No.144 "Shofu no Beni-hime-go" in "Okawa Shofu So" in kennel.
Also participated in the Seiken-Kumi small class and came from Fukuoka Prefecture.
No.174 "Yamada no Yuina-go"
Participated in the Soken-Kumi medium class and came from Osaka Prefecture.
It won the Nippo Honbu-sho Award and is a wonderful dog.
No.54 "Ai no Nishiki oh-go" in "Ashu Otani So" kennel.
This dog also came from Kumamoto Prefecture.
It has already won the Nippo Honbu-sho Award 5 times, so it only needs one more to become a Kansei-Ken.
However, it withdrew from the second judging round this time because it wasn't feeling well.
