Danba, the puppies’ great-grandpa


Several years ago Kunza Danba went to Idaho to live with Susan Whitaker. Before leaving Debby’s care, he sired two litters. A puppy from each litter later gained Championship. Ch. Kunza Drin Lan at FFT Melou OA OAJ and Ch. Mokiema Kunza’s Dr. Who. With Susan he has sired several litters with pointed offspring, along with a litter bred by Cassandra de la Rosa producing Ch. Suntory La Bamba and Ch. Suntory Fandango.

Received this update from Susan…

Danba has over the last 2 months turned a very affectionate, playful boy. I think he is finally feeling comfortable here. AND I get a nose kiss every day. He still is chary of strangers, but that is what he is supposed to be. When he gets his teeth done I have to get him out of the cage for them, and when he is ready to come home get him out again. But he does stand for the vet to examine him, he is tolerant of clippers and even lets me use the pedipaws on his feet. His son that I kept is a little on the small side, but otherwise very nice, and has a very hard, correct but slow growing coat. He is still very much a puppy, and he and his sire are the only two males that get along in the house.  Thought you would enjoy an update.
