Megasthenes Ekira, August 3, 2003  -  September 20, 2012 




Megasthenes Ekira
Dutch Champion, Belgian Champion, Dutch Winner 2006 + 2007, Belgian Winner 2007

Ekira, called Kira, was our second Tosa. She was born august 18, 2003 in the E-litter of kennel Megasthenes. Kira had the same mother as our male Chintarou, their mother was Champion Megasthenes Acatenango (Tango). Tango was World Champion, Dutch Champion and Winster in 2000, 2001 and 2002.
Kira's father was Fire Mountain's Bad Boy (Kramer), he was World Champion and Luxembourg Champion.
Kira was a beautiful, large and properly constructed bitch with an excellent, expressive head. Many of her ancestors have champion titles and Kira continued that tradition. From pup she competed in many dog shows in The Netherlands and Belgium where, under different judges, she achieved excellent results with many qualifications as best female and best of breed. Thus she gained the titles of Dutch Champion, Belgian Champion, Winner 2006, Winner 2007 and Belgian Winner 2007.
Meanwhile Ekira twice had a litter with a total of 16 puppies, who have gone to The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Finland.
Because we think in relation to the health of the bitch two litters are enough, after her 2nd litter we retired Ekira from both breeding and shows.
But her children kept up the tradition of gaining titles. From Kira's B-litter, born january 1, 2008, her son Nihon Koku's Bushido became Dutch Youth Champion (NJK), Youth Winner 2008 and Winner 2008.
Her daughter Nihon Koku's Benihime also followed in her mother's footsteps because she became Dutch Junior Winner 2008, Dutch Junior Champion 2009, Belgian Winner 2009, Dutch Champion, Dutch Winner 2010 and 2011 and Belgian Winner 2012.
