HEPER painted by the scientific technical writer's daughter
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
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
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.
