I met this gorgeous fluffy teddy bear today to give him a bit of a groom and get some of the shed undercoat out of him. We had a little stroll through the wood first and a little play in the paddock, where I was treated to a lovely Yogi hug and some very delicate kisses, before heading into the shower room for the grooming. Despite having never met me before and the outrageous heat today, Yogi let me spend a good 45 minutes giving him a brush down. He was less keen on the prospect of a shower off, but still let me give him a shampoo and rinse. After that we went to the paddock with a towel to dry off followed by a much slower paced wander around the wood.

This is a long way off being a good picture of him, but we had such a nice afternoon in the sun I thought I would share it


He's an incredibly laid back and loving boy!

we walked the adorable yogi bear yesterday when we went in his kennel he was sooo pleased and excited to see us and sooo pleased to get out and about - if neko is a gentle giant then yogi is a size up from that and is a mild mannered goliath - we wondered if yogi would like going in the stream as much as neko does and we were not disappointed he loves ambling up and down the middle of the stream - we passed many dogs on our walk which he totally ignored he is a very laid back dog

Verdi, Janine and their boys came to meet dogs as they had to say goodbye to Nina last week and needed a dog fix. They had a great time and suddenly Yogi was jumping in the back of their car for a weekend foster to see how he gets on with their cat

full update later but yogi is smarter than the average bear.he's calm and travelled well.. he is very very friendly but without going crazy and can shift into that akita aloofness which means he doesn't mind being cuddled at all, but he's fine if you are busy and seems happy to snooze or watch the world through the French windows

I will be taking lots of pics.

oh he is amazing with our boys 11 and 7 although they are both tall... 11 yr old is 5.5ft but of course yogi has given them some real perspective over size.

Will keep you posted...

so here's an update... we've got pics but having trouble uploading but will do later

Yogi is mellow. he has brief moments when getting ready to go out where he has a little puppy exuberance but no bad behaviour... so no jumping or not listening just happy

he stayed close to me following me from room to room which was a concern but as he relaxed he went from following to looking up and eventually ended up sleeping in the dining room after walking off during a movie which was nice

we took him for long walk and he is an angel to walk... also played with a football on a long leash ... in true akita fashion he picked it up and we played fetch/Chase. all very mellow

interesting point.... no matter how far or what he was doing the command LEAVE resulted in immediate stop and looking to me ... he's tuned in and has been trained and wants to interact.

not really food driven although cocktail sausages got a 5 minute training srssion

I was worried at bedtime but I turned out light and he glanced up and lay down..

I went up to bed and partially blocked stairs with folded clothes stand..

freshener up and heard some footsteps and looked down landing to see yogi go to ground floor... heard him drink and then return to dining room and believe me you can hear him flomp down.

slept through the night.. no bins raided or anything 😊

oh he didn't bite the mother in law ... but I guess you can't win them all 😉

cat intros slowly today fingers crossed
