Dedication And Thanks

### Breeders and Friends I have met wonderful Shiba breeders and non-breeders who I regard as mentors and appreciate their advice and guidance. The furry four legged gang at Koyote Kennels would like to shake a paw and howl many thanks to Dr. Carolin Koebisch for her kindness and special veterinary care. (Box 18, Site 9, RR#, Cochrane, AB T4C 1A1 ph 403-932-8387) Special thanks to Nobuo Atsumi of Japan for our sweet Japanese import, Sakurahime. Debbie Meador for her kindness and knowledge, and our extra special dogs Virginia and Rebel. Both are now happily retired in their forever homes. Frances Attridge and Lynn Blank for our wonderful New York additions, Butler and Majic, both now also retired and happily spoiled house pets. Frerose Kennels of South Carolina for our snuggly boy, Mighty Nebo, now over the Rainbow Bridge. Vince d'Eon of 5by5 imaging.com inc. for his kindness, caring and friendship and his devotion to not only his dogs but my own, and for his signage and printing products that make my booth look great wherever I'm setup.
