Godzuki’s Litter Guessing Game

Godzuki’s litter is due in a few weeks! We’re holding a guessing game again for anyone who wants to participate. You can make a prediction about the puppies – their date of birth, colors, and sexes. You may make as many guesses as you want. Each category is worth a certain number of points, and the player with the most points wins!

Godzuki’s expected due date based on ovulation and breeding is between May 21st and 26th. Each puppy has a 75% chance to be brindle and 25% chance to be white – no red.

We will announce the winner(s) after the puppies are born. Please make sure you enter a valid email address so we can contact you if you win.

Entry Form

You may optionally click here to make a $5 contribution after you’ve made your prediction. Make sure you include a note letting us know who you are so we can match it up with your entry.

Contribute to Litter F

If you like, you may make a $5 contribution towards Litter F along with your prediction. (Limit one prediction per $5.) If the player with the closest prediction made a contribution they will receive a PetSmart gift card worth 50% of the total contributions. The winner may instead choose to have a donation made in his or her name to JACA Cares, a non-profit aid to Japanese Akita rescues, for the same amount. The rest of the contributions will go towards whelping supplies, puddle pads, blankets, toys, and other items for Godzuki’s puppies.

Welcome, Litter E!

Mosura had her litter by c-section at 10:30 am this morning. There is one brindle girl and we have decided to call her River. Mother and pup are doing well so far and settled in snugly in the whelping room.

We expect River’s adult coloration to be similar to Bruno. You can view daily photos of her on our Facebook page and in her own album. And don’t forget to watch her on the puppycam!

River is not available. She may stay with us to be the next generation of Kaiju Kennels, or go to one of our already approved homes.

Snow Day

We took a Gamera and Ebira up to Big Bear Lake to play in the snow for the first time today. Both girls jumped right in without hesitation. Ebira wanted to run around and romp in it, while Gamera was really focused on eating the snow. It was the first time the girls got to interact and it went well all around. After a late lunch we headed back home. Continue reading
