Meet little SAKURA the chow in the cherry blossoms -and Happy Birthday Ihana!

Meet my new little Chow illustration who I have named “Sakura”. which are the cherry blossoms in Japan

SAKURA  lives in Kyoto Japan and is very much looking forward to spring arriving with the cherry blossom season and morning strolls in the serene Zen gardens.   Sakura-fubuki (???) – means “cherry blossom snowstorm”. Often cherry blossom petals dance in the spring wind, which from a distance can look like a storm of pink petals!   The entire flurry of bloom only lasts about a week sometime between March and early May, depending on the weather.

Sakura told me that she is sooooo done with winter and ready for that spring in her step to return again!!!?

Sakura merchandise is now available in my ZAZZLE BOUTIQUE  on  shirts , mugs, tote bags and much more!


Below was GOTTCHA day for little Miss Ihana 6 years ago in front of the “Sakura” cherry trees in Hood River Oregon on our way home from her breeder in Canada!   Last Tuesday we celebrated her birthday at the coast with beach walks, lots of barking just to be joyful and fish and chips  for all of us  It was an absolutely perfect day at the beach in mid winter!!

Below are Ihana and Steve last week at Neskowin Beach Oregon.  One of the prettiest isolated beaches around.

Below is My little toe beans and butt super model for the “SAKURA” artwork.  None other than Champion Stormy !!!! Thanks Jan for letting me use this adorable photo??.
