sorry its been a long time since i have written. kobi is great and looking very trim he has started to stick to me like glue i have not been to good because of my army life i have compression damage to my leg joints and sometimes i am layed up after taking morphine but we do go out for walks he has slowed down his walking speed to help me. me and kobi are now educating children in the area on how to approach a large dogs. i still get children running up to him and i have to till them this is dangerous. all the children here love him and as soon as i take him out they are all over him but as for getting him used to other dogs NO if a dog comes to close he goes on the defence. we have been asked if we would like to do hospital and care-home vista but at the moment i am looking in to this to see what this entails but i will keep you informed to what happens. sorry for not downloading photos but this laptop has had it i am hoping to get a new one soon. getting kobi from you was the best thing i have ever done.THANK YOU

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW ME AND KOBI HAVE HAD SOME TROUBLE FROM WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE DOG FATUITY THERE IS ABOUT TWENTY OF THEM WHO HAVE TAKEN OVER THE PARK WERE ME AND KOBI WALK. WE GET VERBALLY ABUSED AND TOLD DOGS LIKE KOBI SHOULD BE DESTROYED. WELL ONE DAY I LOST IT. I KNOW I SHOULD OF JUST WALKED AWAY BUT THIS WOMAN JUST WOULDN'T LEAVE US A LOAN SO I FIRED BACK AND CALLED HER SOME BAD THINGS. WELL THIS TIME I HAVE HAD ENOUGH AND CALLED THE POLICE I INFORMED THEM WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND WHAT I SAID TO THIS WOMAN. THE POLICE TOLD ME I WAS NOT THE FIRST AND A POLICE DOG HANDLER WHO LIVE IN THE AREA HAD ALSO BEEN ABUSED WHEN HE WAS OFF DUTY AND WALKING IS DOG. SO THE POLICE HAVE MOVED THEM ON. I AM REALLY SICK OF THIS TYPE OF DOG OWNER.

Hello David and Kobi. Glad to hear all is well. Looking forward to pics of the svelte Kobi. We all have issues with inconsiderate dog owners. We will never get used to it. Lucky for you and Kobi, you have such lovely walks down your neck of the woods. You are lucky to have each other.

first let me say I'm so glad to hear that you and Kobi are getting on so well, it sounds like he's defiantly a very special loyal boy., when I had a very bad ankle sprain last January my Asia ajusted her walking speed to mine, akita's are so good at reading us and our needs, it sounds like Kobi will make a godd PAT dog

Asfor the nasty pieces of work in the park, I feel for you, only last year we had a simular experience wit hexactly thesame type of people who have taken over our park, Asia got into little spat when she was on her lead and an off lead greyhound got between my husand and Asia, Asia had a quick snap at the dog but because he was a greyhound with very sensitive skin he ended up with a couple of tears in his skin, we paid the vet fees. There's a lot more to the story but it ended with all kinds of rumors going round the town about Asia, they even called the police onto us, so I always make sure I keep her basic trianing up and when we walk around town she is seen to be a very well behaved dog, kids love to say hello to her (like you I have to tell some overcited children to leave her alone, especially the ones that scream!!! ) and adults are always stopping to give her a fuss and comment on what a good girl she is, although if they heard her barking at the poor old posty this morning they might think differently Needless to say we never walk Asia through the park anymore but we have a very nice lady who is also campaigning about these people so hopefully one day we'll beable to walk her over there again

Kobi's tail 09 Aug 2013 11:05 #9115

i need some advice kobi when he is in the house is tail is down but when he goes out is tail goes back up is this normal or do i have a problem.


If he's anything like my Bear then his tail uncurls when he's relaxed. Bear's usual sequence is :
sit; sit and tail curly but not tight; lie down like a frog with his tail the same; tail a bit curved but not really curly; flop onto side four feet together; totally out on his side with all four legs straight out; puppy dreams with the feet twitching.

So it sounds like Kobi is just fine - chilled indoors and alert outside.

The ears are another giveaway - Bear's are like Batman when he's alert but slowly drop down to Yoda when he's chilled. Akitas never seem to go off-guard completely and can go from splat-on-the-floor to ready-for-anything in less than half a second. Usually when another dog comes into the pub....

Make sure the table he's tied to is heavy enough if you can move it then it isn't heavy enough.

Sounds like Kobi has landed on his feet.

all the best

Peter
