A Puppy's Little Heart

I'm sure we've all heard stories from someone claiming their dog had a "heart" in its coat, but upon looking closely at the dog's coat it became obvious that this "heart" was an odd-shaped circle.

In one case, this heart shape was not a stretch of imagination.

Meet Heart-Kun, a 10 month old Chihuahua born in Odate, Japan with a large, clearly-defined brown heart-shaped marking against his white coat. The puppy's breeder, Emiko Sakurada-who has bred nearly 1,000 dogs over the past several years-claims she has not seen a marking like this on any other dog.

Bred with the intention to be sold, Heart-Kun born May 18, 2007, has brought "good fortune to me and everyone else whose path cross with Heart-Kun," said Sakurada who plans to keep this big-hearted puppy.

A video about Heart-Kun will be posted shortly once I get YouTube and blogger to interact.
