Kai-Jax - North Carolina

There certainly is much to miss with this guy!!

He is doing absolutely great!! Training began on day one, going gentle and easy with lots of “atta-boys” ! He is so funny when he sits on the back porch with me and starts to “grumble” and “chuff” at just about everything. My home here is pretty isolated (part of why I like it so much) and there are lots of birds flying around and making a racket. Also below my fence line is a small livestock farm so he sees and hears the cows, goats, and sheep. I have been a bit surprised by how much he barks. Since I am quite familiar with the Northern Breeds I would expect less barking and more “singing, howling” like Siberians and Malamutes typically do. Is that something you see in your dogs, or do they tend to just bark?

He is doing great with the socializing as I am taking him to meet people and expose him to different environments. As you are well aware I’m sure, everyone who sees him wants to “fawn” all over him! He was a bit skittish the first couple of days but he is clearly beginning to relax into the new home and routines. He is doing amazingly well with the crate training and grumbles a bit for the first minute or two then settles right down. So far, only one minor housebreaking incident in the house and I caught him just as he started to pee and rushed him outside to the area of the yard where he is learning is HIS potty area.

I won’t bother you with all the vet statements if you don’t need them but will surely send anything/update you with anything significant (which I don’t anticipate). Would love to stay in touch and keep you updated with info and pictures, and don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to for any reason. My girls in Arizona are coming unglued with excitement and getting daily pictures/video of the new puppy. But they will have to wait a bit as my wife will be coming in a couple of weeks for our 25th wedding anniversary so she will get to see him first!! I don’t know if I told you that the name (a bit odd as it is) came from each of my daughters. My 24 y/o (who has a terminal illness) wanted “Kai” to be the name as she knows there are several different countries (including Findland) that have different meanings for the name. She has always been interested in the Japanese culture and there are about 4 different translations in the Japanese language. Actually, what hooked me is a Scottish translation for “Fire” !! Being retired from the fire service (and missing it every day) helped lock that part of the name! My younger daughter suggested “Jax” which is probably better by itself. I wanted both girls to feel they had a part of naming “our” (MY!) new puppy so I combined them and now we have “Kai-Jax”. I am pretty certain he will primarily be called simply “Kai”.

Thank you for checking up on him. I am impressed with breeders that care enough to WANT to see how things are going. Please, like I said earlier, feel free to check in any time and if you ever travel to the North Western part of the state (Ashe County) you are welcome to come by and see him! I may also bring him by if I am in your area if you would like to see him that way!

Take Care and keep breeding those beautiful puppies!!!
Best wishes,
dean
