Visiting Yamabiko Kenel (3)

So when I dropped by to take a look at the pups there again, I got to look at some more albums of the early days of NIPPO. Since everyone seems to love these old photos, I'm sharing them here again.

 Getting a 'yuuryou' (excellent) in the early days of NIPPO was difficult! Today almost all dogs receive a yuuryou, as you'll only be given a 'tokuryou' (good) if your dog has some serious faults.
They even used to give out awards to the dogs given yuuryou evaluations, and this was the first time I got to see what they looked like.
