I am sending you some pictures of our 16 year old, Kido. We have been asked countless times, "What is he?" Many comment that he looks like he has some wolf or coyote in him. Our response has always been we think he's a shepherd/husky mix. Looks like we weren't too far off.

  • Level 2: Siberian Husky
  • Level 4: Basset Hound
  • Level 5: Poodle
  • Level 5: West Highland White Terrier
Kido's name is related to his older brother (he's been gone about 3 years). My son brought home a Lhasa/Poodle mix on his 18th birthday. He was a gift from his karate coach. So we named him Kenpo for the type of karate he was studying. Kido had been abandoned in a park when he weighed 8 pounds. We named him Aikido, as my two youngest daughters were studying that form of martial art. It was shortened to Kido over time.

We still can't believe he's made it to 16. He's a little shaky at times and needs to wear a doggy diaper at night, but he still smiles and loves to sleep in the sun.
