James Thurber once said "If I have any beliefs about immortality it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very very few people". Anjin was one of those dogs. The greatest Christmas gift I ever received , Anjin was Akashima's (of Goosak was our FCI kennel name) very first Canadian Champion. She whelped Emi who would become Winners Bitch at the World dog show in Oporto, Portugal and ruled our home and kennel with her gentle disposition and her strength of character. Born on December 24 1995, Anjin was killed by two German Shepherd dogs, August 10 2009. A part of us is gone.
