Mato 25th day at my parents' home (2016/10/31) / Mato 実家25日目

Happy Halloween everyone!!!

Halloween wasn't that big in Japan when I used to live here.  Now it seems like it became a huge event.

Japanese love to put costumes a lot from anime culture and I guess halloween fits perfect :p

Actually, I went to the disney land with my friend and her kids.  During this halloween period, people are allowed to put some costumes and enjoy the stay in the park.  My friend and her kids had some Mickey mouse, Donald Duck, and all these disney related character costumes.  It was sort of last minute thing for me so I put some cape and make-up pretended like a witch.  

Really fun but my friend and I had not enough sleep last night and had to drive about a coupe of hours each way and walked whole day long in the park.  We were pretty beat...


私がまだ日本に住んでる頃はハロウィンはまだこんなににぎやかじゃなかったけど 今じゃかなりでかいイベントになったのね〜。アメリカの本物とは違うけど。

日本人ってコスプレ好きだから コスチュームを着れるイベント事なんてそりゃ浸透するわなぁ〜(笑)


ということで 私の友達とその子供 でディズニーランド!

楽しんだは楽しんだけど 友達も私も寝不足に長距離運転 一日中歩き回ったからお疲れモード。

Anyways, today's Mato.

Before I left home early this morning, we played together by doing like play-tag and hide-and-seek sort of thing :)))

Mato 24th day at my parents' home (2016/10/30) / Mato 実家24日目

Do you know what's happening today??

It's the day for Kai Ken Aigokai dog show!

And look at him!  He finally got used to riding a car, I guess. 

さてさて 今日は待ちに待った甲斐犬愛護会展覧会。


って こやつ だいぶ車に慣れて なんだろうこの威張った感んじ(笑)

I learned that Mato's little shy todya.

When we got to the place full of people and dogs, his legs were shaking and couldn't walk at first.

Kaiya is not good at going to some events where it's crowded with people.  I really hope that Mato won't be like that.


人がたくさん犬がたくさんで 最初足ブルでなかなか歩けなかった(^^;)

Kaiyaが人がたくさんいる場所 イベント会場はかなりの苦手だから Matoには慣れて欲しいな。

We met Sumomo at first!!

I've seen Sumomo before but for Mato it's a first time!

She's such  a friendly girl and she really wanted to play with Mato but he was being too shy :(((

まずは すももちゃん発見!!!

Matoは初めまして。すももちゃんの積極的なお誘いに ちょっと引っ込み思案。


This is Ren.  He's from Minami Alps Kennel and Hana's son.

これは南アルプス犬舎のハナの仔 レン。

Mr. Arisumi leading Mato!

南アルプス犬舎のお父さんに引かれて 頑張って人&犬のいっぱいなところを歩きます!

I came to the fall Kai Ken Aigokai dog show last year.  I think it's a lot more people than last year.

去年の秋展に来たけど 今年は去年より人が多い気がする。

This is Nico, also from Minami Alps Kennel.  Natsu's son.

じゃじゃん!こちらも南アルプス犬舎のナツの仔 ニコ!

These two played real hard and it was almost never ending

Thanks Nico for playing with Mato!!  He fell asleep right a way when he got home :))))


おかげでかなり疲れて今夜はぐっすり(-_^) ニコちゃん遊んでくれてありがとぉん!

He can't say no to food...and so can't his mommy... ;p

食べ物に目がないMato。・・・あっ アタシと同じじゃん!(笑)


Her name is Ichi and she's 3 month old!

こちらMatoよりちょっと年下 3ヶ月のイチちゃん。

Well, I guess he's interested in a big guy than the little girl in his age.


These puppies are all from Minami Alps Kennel.

Top left: Akari (mother: Hana)
Top right: Natsume (mother: Natsu)
Bottom right: Ren (mother: Natsu)
Bottom left: Mato

They all grew up together before they went to their furevver home:)))

That's why they played sooooo much and had a great time!!!

ってことで 南アルプス犬舎出身の仔たちに合流して いっぱい遊んだよぉ〜。



Hey Ken!

Ken is cousin of Mato.  Ken took a real good care of Mato when they lived together.  Ken's like a big bro for Mato!

おっ ケン兄!

ケンはMatoの従兄弟だし 南アルプス犬舎にいた頃いっぱい遊んでもらった面倒見のいいお兄ちゃん!

Ken's real popular among all the puppies!


Hahahaha.  What the hell are these two doing, looking at Akari like that! lol

なんだろう この2人・・・。めっちゃ同じ格好でアカリちゃん凝視してる(笑)

They play rough even they are little! :))


Natsu me on his mom's shoulder :p

肩乗り棗www かわゆい!!!

We were having such a fun time meeting a lot of Kai's and people.  When we realized, we hadn't even watched the dog show at all and it was already passed noon.  lol

展覧会そっちのけで 甲斐犬交流を深めていたら もうすでに昼過ぎてたし(笑)

Mato got real tired after the rough play.  Taking a nap for a while.

Mato氏 お疲れモードで知らない間にちょっとお休みモードへ。

Gotta watch it for real now!


These two were barking at each other soooooo much!!


The male kai with the man in green got a first prize.

The other one is a female kai with second prize.

Sleep over / お泊り

Daddy apparently went out last night to have fun with his friends.

That's why Kaiya stayed over at Simba's home.

Nice to have some company with her :)))

And they seem like having fun!!!

どうやら ダディは昨日の夜友達と遊びに出かけたらしく Kaiyaさんはシンバのお家にお泊りに行ったらしい。



Mato 23rd day at my parents' home (2016/10/29) / Mato 実家23日目

Today we got in the car in the morning and went out!

Guess where we went!?

To the Minami Alps Kennel where Mato used to live before he moved to my parents' home!!!

They were by the river taking a walk so we joined them :)))

It's been a year since the last for me to see them except Ken (Ken joined the pack after my trip to Japan last year) and three weeks for Mato.

Good to see ya everyone!!!!






Of course, Mato remembered Mr. Arisumi, daddy of this kennel :)


Seems Ai's happy to see him.  She's following Mato for a while.


Running together with Kirara.


Hey, Hana!  Hey, Ai!

ハナちゃん アイちゃん こんにちは!

Hellow, Mrs. Arisumi!!

お母さん お久しぶり〜!

I don't know why he chose this place to drink water but it looks very dangerous.  Please be careful and don't fall in the water!!

すんごく際どいとこで 水分補給。

・・・流されんなよ・・・(ー ー;)

He's like "what?" ...looks like he doesn't understand my worry at all :p


He was running around by himself for a little while.


Then Mato and Kirara started to play tag :))

Mato's really fast I think.  Yet, he's not fast enough to beat Kirara :p



This picture is always overwhelming!


Mato fell asleep in the car on the way home back.  He fell asleep again in mom's arms after we got home. lol

帰りの車の中でも寝てたけど お家に帰ってきてからママに抱っこされたら また寝ちゃった(笑)

In the afternoon, we took a walk to see my relatives.

They have also a Kaiken named Kurobe.  He's really a friendly handsome boy.

Kurobe got really into Mato and sniffed Mato all the time.  Mato, on the other hand, seemed it didn't bother him and just went around to check the place :)




Early evening walk with Alex!


In the garden.

Jay joined and these are our boys!! :)))


ジェイも加わって これがうちの男衆です!(≧∇≦)
