Shikoku Ken Discussion
Unplanned encounters with shikoku: have you had one?
Hey guys!! I know shikoku are pretty uncommon. Kaja is in fact the only one I've seen in person. We had an encounter the other day and it prompted me to wonder -- have you guys ever randomly crossed paths with another shikoku?

Our story! The coolest thing happened. I was in Japan for a bit and so left Kaja at overnight doggy daycare. And she met another shikoku! His name was Goma -- so I checked the pedigree database and I'm pretty sure they are even half siblings (Hana is their mom). So there we have it. Kaja met one of her brothers -- and I wasn't even there! I do have photos, though! They seemed to get along well enough, as the photos consist of them chasing one another. :P

From this I learned Kaja is pretty small compared to some other shikoku haha.

Did I see any shikoku while in Japan? No. I did see plenty of shiba and akita though!

What about you guys? Any encounters and what sort of reaction? I was pretty stunned when I found out Kaja met one without me!
