Hey everybody,
It is almost Valentines and I would like to hear why you love Japanese Chin.
I have been in dogs for years and trained lots of different breeds and in my opinion,Chin are the best!
I love their independance, I love how clean they are,I love how CUTE they are.
Let's hear why they are special to you!

Trying to determine what I love most....
I love how expressive they are, I love the woo woo woos, I love the feathering on the coat, I love the snoring and sneezing. Even chin fur around my house is fine with me.
I could really continue on and on.
I don't see myself having another breed of dog. There are other great breeds out there, but I am so in love with Chins I would regret not always having two around the house.

Stop! You little- fart-nugget!

Cody ahs described it almost perfectly! I have never owned a dog who is quite so clean. They say that they were bred with almost cat-like qualities. I love how she is so curious that she has to know what is in every bag I bring home, every box of crafts I open, and has to see close up what ever is going on. I alos have never had such a silly dog before.big laugh

Chins are regal and silly at the same time. I love how they have these spurts of energy. Then they run around like a mad dog! Saki gets so excited he starts acting like a bucking horse! And the climbing! He's like a billy goat!
