    This cast iron dog okimono by Iwachu Foundries of Iwate, Japan is 3" high x 2" long x 1" wide and weighs 14 ounces. It is disconcertingly heavy for its modest size. This dog (Labrador Retriever?) typically has a black finish. This is the first one that I have seen in brown. Iwachu makes several dog and cat okimono. This is my first dog and second Iwachu okimono.

      Very nice- a really dignified pose and such a nice compact, chunky little doggy shape to him too! :) I'm going to go with Labrador retriever too...he's sitting by waiting for his owner and a walkies :D

      Lab it is!
      I had a miniature lab, his name was “Black Hound”.
      Wonderful dog!

      Thanks for your comment, Eileen! I've never had a dog in my adult life but I always carry dog biscuits with me when I bicycle and hike and have had a list of several dogs I fed along my route. Currently, they are all deceased, but there have been a dozen or so.
