    I wanted to give a quick update on Makita :) and also share some news that we found another AKita owner in the village :). My OH had said he had seen another Akita as the man brings it to the primary school when he picks up his children. Well we met the owner last night and he loooooved Makita. It was fantastic talking to another Akita owner and we are going to arrange to meet up one weekend and let them meet. :) I will take a camera! :)

    Makita is doing really well. He is definately more cheeky than Millie, we have had his crate dragged across the room, 1 Bed eaton, dogs food stolen from its storage shelf (Still cant work out how he got so high!) and he is incaperble of drinking without dripping his water everywhere! :D And I really mean every where :D I cannot wear cotton jogging bottoms for dog walking now unless I want to look like a Yeti (Chav tastic shiny trackies all the way now!) :D Also he has a really odd toilet habit :eek: When he wants to do a number 2 he starts scanning around for a bush, he will then reverse himself into it as deep as he can before relieving himself! :eek: This makes it quite arkward to pick it up, especially when there are stinging nettles! He took me by suprise yesterday, we were walking along a pavment, he suddenly stopped, reversed into a flower bed and relieved himself haha. :) Luckily the home owner saw the funny side and saw me clean up.

    In general he has really settled though, he is content being crated at night and he is turning into a proper character. :)

    He sounds like he's settling in really well

    Although I think you need to add more pics of them - the last ones were beautiful, he really is a stunning boy :D

    We've also got an "I want to hide behind the bush to poo" dog :lol: although she does go in forward rather than reverse! And yes, it does make it awkward to pick it up, especially when it's a low bush against a wall.

    I've had to change our route to avoid this area at the moment. It is frequented by owners with big dogs who don't pick up :mad: and the council came to strim the grass yesterday so the poo got strimmed as well :w00t:, almost impossible to avoid it at the moment when you want to do the right thing and pick up after your own dog.

    How nice to find another Akita owner. And yes, pics please!
