Ya, sooooo I have a Japanese Akita pup. He is absolutely THE MOST STUBBORN DOG ALIVE. Sorry to yell, but he is and that was the best way I could think of to describe him. I love my little Makoi to death. He is such a good dog – the best I have ever had actually, but he is testy and stubborn as heck. I knew what I was getting myself into by getting an Akita – I knew all about the breed before I got him, and I did know they were more on the stubborn side. Akita’s are know for their intelligence as well – and oh god is Makoi ever… He has mastered the doggie art of using his stubbornness and intelligence at the same time. Not in the typical way most dogs would just sit and not come when you ask them to, or lie down when you ask them to sit and vice versa. If I ask Makoi to come, he’ll come (I worked very hard on that…) right up to me…Then he’ll look up at me and take two steps to either side of me and either sit or lie down, as if he was saying, “Ya, you asked me to come…But I was also wanting to lie down right here at the same time you asked me to come, so therefore it was my idea.” Little bastard, but I love my little man with all my heart, and I wouldn’t change him one bit!
On our blog here, I will be posting new stories and new facts about Mr.Makoi. There is a lot to cover, so keep checking back for new updates and lots of photos! Here is one for you guys to enjoy! This was during one of our recent hikes at Fernie Alpine Resort 🙂
