EXPORT & ENCYCLOPEDIA

**
EXPORT **
Our museum exported an Ainu Dog (red sesame female puppy) to a dog fancier in Boulder, Colorado, USA on May 2, 2000 in cooperation with Toshio Kudo (living in Sapporo, Hokkaido). We are not a dog breeder. But it deeply impressed us that the fancier would like to get his dog a name from the Ainu people. So we exported an Ainu Dog puppy for him. He is a theoretical physicist and we are happy that he has helped us with our written English on our web site.

On November 7, 2000 we sent an Ainu Dog (black male puppy) to a scientific technical writer in Middleton, Wisconsin, USA in cooperation with Sadako Takekata (living in Wakkanai, Hokkaido). The writer promises to help us with our English, too.

Joy message for HEPER
11/15(Wed) 04:22

My family and I want to thank Seta for allowing us the privilege and honor of keeping an Ainu dog in America. We feel it is our responsibility and duty to love and train HEPER so that the people in our country will see that this breed is worthy and should be cherished as a unique gift from the people in Japan who have worked hard to preserve the breed.

HEPER has been with us for a week now, and each day we learn something new about the dog's needs and character of the breed. He is active, friendly and strong-willed. He greets visitors to our house enthusiastically, licking hands and nibbling fingers. He watches everything carefully and loves to run outside with his nose to the ground to try and smell everything at once.

Thank you for sharing the joy that these dogs give to their human keepers. We are deeply grateful.

** ENCYCLOPEDIA **
I'm sorry to say, but the following book was not published.
Our museum provided Leslie Lugg (Rare Insight's Editor) with photos and information of the Ainu Dog and she is writing about 140 dog breeds for "ENCYCLOPEDIA of RARE DOG BREEDS" in USA. We put "Information" and "Standard" in English on our web site for her. The book will be a large hard back and filled with color photos and information and contains about 300 pages of text. Each breed will have a two-page spread.
The encyclopedia will be available in bookstores and pet stores before the end of the year 2001.
The following photos will be used in the book.
puppy --- our dog RAM (female)
adult --- Kenzo Sakusabe's dog SOU (male)
