I am always on the look out for these but are much harder to find than German dog photos. Have never seen a studio portrait.

These are great images.
I agree with Eric in how hard these are to find as he and I have both heavily shopped Japan and I want to say I have owned less then a dozen.

Just found this one. At some point I think Japanese Photos/Paper needs its own sub-section.

I have seen s few pictures but they are few and far between. What I have in my personal collection are several army FOB's for military dogs. If you are interested in seeing them let me know. I'll try to get pictures off before I leave for the SOS Show.

Terrific images Eric. I really enjoyed those; thank you for posting. I have a good luck flag that was presented to a war dog. The flag came with a photograph showing the handler and the dog with the flag draped over the dog's back. I have seen a couple of others over the years but this is the only one that I have acquired. Unfortunately, they are being stored in a place where I cannot get my hands on them, otherwise I would post.

War dog items, especially photos are pretty interesting. I know that there are also award fobs and similar "award" pieces for dogs and their dog handlers. All of these things combine to make it its own separate mini-field of collecting within the larger aspect of Japanese militaria collecting. I did hear that there were some dog/dog handler items available at the SOS last week. John Egger reviewed this photo album that showed a Japanese war dog and soldier while visiting one of the many seller's booths. He has asked me to post the cover of the album, so here it is; thanks for showing John.

Just picked this one up. Wasn't cheap but really liked the composition of the image.
