TETSUNISHIKI OF KAZANSOU
Both Suzu No Benihime and Tetsunishiki is
out of the same sire
Tetsu Arashi of Honjou Arakisou.
The sire of my Tetsu. It was a very special emotion to see Tetsunishiki win BIS as he was one of my favourite already last year in Sendai.
The critic of Tetsunishiki of
Kazansou made by Judge Kawahar
in NIPPO bulletin
"A wonderful Shiba Inu, Tetsunishiki
is worthy of receiving the Prime Minister's Award. A dog of this
quality is rare in the recent Grand National Shows, he may even
be called a masterpiece.
His masculine facial expression is excellent and unrivaled by the others, having strong muzzle, well shaped eyes and wonderful head shape
with full cheek.
The guard hair quality is short of excellent but coat color and well balanced body structure are of very high standard with good legs and bones.
Calm and self composed temperaments represent a desirable intrinsic character of Japanese breeds having Kan-I and Soboku.
One of the best Shiba Inus I have seen."
