Arrival Story: My father wanted an Akita badly, so we went to a breeder to see his new four-month-old puppies. Yoshi was in the corner by himself, and my father went over to him and picked him up. There was an attachment right away, and we took him home a few days later.
Bio: Yoshi passed away at the ripe old age of 12 on January 14, 2010, less than a year after his "sister," Pepper. He was happy, silly, and energetic right up to the end, when his old body just couldn't do it anymore. We all still miss him terribly.
