My puppy, Kobe.  He is a male Samoyed (pronounced sammy-ed).  His hobbies are sleeping, peeing, pooping, playing, chewing, ripping, stealing, barking, jumping, walking, pulling, digging, etc.  In other words, acting like a Samoyed.  This is my second Samoyed.  One would have thought I would have learned my lesson on being owned by a Samoyed, but noooooo!  Subconsciously, I must be into S&M.  Actually, I wouldn't even think twice about owning another breed.  Samoyeds are the best!  Yes, even better than Shelties.    

His current favorite thing to do is chewing up my pillow and comforters.  Count so far is one pillow, three comforters (four if you count the guest bed), and two sofas.  Grrr .... Apparently it is a little known fact that polyester fill is a supplementary diet requirement.

Dislikes: being ignored, baths, grooming, baths, teeth brushed, baths, nails clipped, baths.  Oh, did I mention he really, really hates baths? 

Kobe?  Where did that name come from?  He is named after the Italian Iron Chef, Masahiko Kobe, the "Prince of Pasta".  Iron Chef cooking show originated in Japan and became very popular in the United States.  Okay, why the Italian Iron Chef?  Well, you didn't expect me to name him after the Chinese Iron Chef, Chen Kenichi?  Or the French Iron Chef, Sakai Hiroyuki?  Or the Japanese Iron Chef, Morimoto Masaharu?  I didn't think so.  The Iron Chef Wikipedia is a good place to visit to learn more about the show.  The Iron Chef Collection has a great collection of videos of the original show.  Here is Kobe Masahiko's bio and this is his restaurant's website, Ristorante Massa (in Japanese).
