The Family Dog Blog begins in Fall, 2015, long before our puppy Kitto Katsu is born, the day we decide that the time is right for us to be dog owners. Months later, we start this blog: bursting with excitement, waiting (mostly) patiently in line, counting off days until the dog of our dreams comes home to live with us.
We commit to raise an Alaskan Klee Kai (AKK) from about 8 weeks old, and to support the continual betterment of the breed. As we explore the AKK community, we think about what our family contributions might look like. We decide to celebrate all dogs and their owners, and to teach our own dog to be a gleeful ambassador.
The Family Dog Blog is our gift to you. Here we record our adventures with Kitto Katsu the Alaskan Klee Kai. We share what dog ownership can be. We showcase inspiring dog-owner friendships, and show you how to create the same bond between yourselves and your own dogs. We link everything to sources we learned from, so that you may follow up and come to your own conclusions.
Come with us. We will show our Family Dogs the way we want them to be. They will follow our lead, and they will be spectacular.
Dad, Mom, Jess, Alyssa. February, 2016.
ABOUT KITTO KATSU
Kitto Katsu is a Japanese phrase for “Surely win” or “Victory is certain.” In English, we might say “Good Luck,” but “Kitto Katsu!” is more fun. Also, in Japan, people send “KitKat” bars to friends as encouragement.
