Some of the dogs that have left us. We miss them all...

All were special to us!



Toshimi's Total Package "Zack"

June 1996 - July 2003

Our Zack started out as a promising pup but things quickly changed. He was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at a year of age. From there things  got worse, he developed VKH and spent the next five years battling this awful disease. In the beginning the outbreaks were months apart but as time went by they were just weeks apart and Zack just gave up. He spent his life as a pampered house dog, the king of his castle and enjoyed tons of chocolate chip cookies, his favorite! We miss our big boy.



Okami's Playin' The Field "Junior"

June 2000 - July 2004

Junior was a sweetheart, he could go anywhere with us and loved everyone. He was our clown! Always having fun and keeping us laughing. Junior developed an infection that quickly spread to his brain. Within days our happy boy was unable to walk or see. How awful for our boy just full of life. We hope there are lots of toys in Heaven for our Junebug to play with.




Okami's Outta The Depths "Coal"

July 2002 - March 2004


Baby Coal was a single pup with a strong will to live. He was born early with numerous problems. He was unable to swallow which was caused by PRAA. Our wonderful vet did surgery when he was just 13 days old, it worked. Coal also survived pneumonia caused by aspirating everything we tried to feed him. Next came a telescoping intestine, but he survived. What a strong and happy puppy. 

For the next year Coal lived a normal life, eating everything he wanted, playing with the other dogs and just touching our hearts. He got away with lots of things that were off limits to the others but he was special. One awful morning he bloated. He taught us so much and touched everyone he met. We miss you Cocoa Bean!








CH Toshimi's Victorian Charm "Tara"

January 1997 - October 2006


Tara was our first show dog. Boy did she make it seem easy, quickly finishing completely novice owner handled at 10 months of age. She enjoyed showing off which made it fun. Tara has taught us plenty, she was a sweetheart and loved all people but was extremely dog aggressive, even climbing fences to fight. We learned the hard way about expensive micro mesh fencing, a necessity with her. Sadly Tara lost her battle with cancer at 9 years old.











CH Okami's Touched By An Angel "Honey"

June 2000 - May 2008

Honey was our Granite daughter, same loving temperament with just a bit of silliness thrown in. She quickly finished her champship, could care less about showing, she just wanted the treats! She produced 2 champions, Gable & Star. Sadly cancer shortened her life. We miss you Collar Girl!


CH Okami's Totally Star Struck "Star"

April 2003 - April 2010

Star finished her championship quickly and easily. She was a "Star". The little "lawn dart" became a beautiful girl. Star was lost to bloat just after her 7th birthday.


Okami's Miss Behavin' "Missy"

April 2003 - 2009

Missy was owned & loved by Linda Lopossa. She was major pointed in limited showing here when she came for a visit. We are so happy that she was able to spend time with us before returning to Linda. Miss you girl!
