New Emperor

Japan has a new Emperor.

The old Emperor Akihito abdicated yesterday in favour of his son Naruhito. Formally, Naruhito became Emperor today.

In a way, Naruhito is also the Emperor of every Shiba in the World, whatever country we live in. Our breed is from Japan. The Japanese Kennel Club decides on the breed standard. This is in accordance with the rules of the International Kennel Federation FCI, which says the kennel club of the home country of a breed decides upon the breed standard. The Japanese Kennel Club is incorporated in Japan, where Naruhito is now Emperor and Head of State.

I am born and raised in Sweden and registrered with the Swedish Kennel Club. Still, I am also Japanese, since I am a Shiba.

Long live the Emperor!
