Hokkaido holds a special place in my heart because I met my husband in Sapporo during my year teaching at an eikawa many moons ago. I am not a dog person myself but my Tokyo-born daughter is crazy about them. In fact, her first word after "mama" and "papa" was "wan-wan" - the onomatopoeic word for puppy in Japanese / the sound of a dog barking in Japanese. On strolls through the streets of Tokyo, my baby daughter would point at every dog she saw and shout "wan-wan"! Needless to say, she was also a huge fan of Wan-wan the dog on Inai inai pa! (NHK) and would sing and dance along to Guru guru tokkan!.
