The Japanese Government has offered a new gift to Russia’s strong man Vladimir Putin – an Akita puppy.
What could be the Japanese government’s motivations? Is it strategic geo-politics or are they just trying to enter the ‘Dogs Who Look Like Their Owners’ contest?
Akitas are know as fierce, distrustful of strangers, hard to predict and requiring a strong assertive presence. Now that I think of it, that could serve as a great description for Comrade Putin himself.
