The 145th Kai Ken Aigokai dog show was held in Yamanashi, Japan (15 minutes aways from where I grew up) on last Sunday (2nd of April).
Mato's dad Ren (real name is Amari no ryusei) was there as one of so called reference dogs from previous champions.
He was the 143th grand champion.
４月２日日曜日に 私の実家のすごく近く山梨の韮崎市で第１４５回甲斐犬愛護会展覧会があって Matoのお父さんレン（甘利乃龍聖）が参考犬で出たんだってぇ〜！
Mr.&Mrs. Arisumi sent me the photo :))
The KKA dog show is held twice a year, spring and fall, and I went to the last fall one when I went to Japan to bring Mato. And it was amazing. I'm not actually interested in the show but seeing so many Kais is like a paradise!
I really wanna see Ren again. I've only seen him once last year for the first time but he was such a sweet boy!
You know, Mato used to look like his mom Komugi so much when he was little, but now he also looks like Ren :)
そうそう 小さい頃はお母さんのコムギに似てたMatoだけど 最近はレンにも似て来た！特に鼻とかマズルあたり（￣+ー￣）
And this time, one of Kaiya's brother from the same litter, Hayate came to see this show. Hayate lives vey far from Yamanashi, so this doesn't happen often, and I missed it!!!!
Hayate and Kaiya were the ones who most look like their dad Kai and which means they are look alike, too.
I couldn't find better photo of Kaiya but don't you think so??
そしてそしてなんと Kaiyaの兄弟 疾風が今回は遠いところから展覧会を見に来てたんだって！
