Akita Puppies’ Slobbery Kiss


These Akita puppies are a litter of five born in the city of Noshiro, Akita Prefecture. They are just 35 days old but already display distinctive traits. Some want to play; others would rather sleep! A pair of them engage in a friendly, enthusiastic exchange of licks. This slobbery kissing is apparently something puppies do when they are hungry. Let’s hope they eat well and grow up into healthy and happy Akita dogs.
