Emilia and Ashka on Japanese TV

Betty was contacted by a Japanese TV producer of "Amazing Animals" for information and photos of English Angora. The producer already had picked Emilia and Ashka as her choices at the time of contact. No, Betty and the rabbits were not invited to go to Japan, the request was for the photos.

The segment was broadcasted in Japan at the end of July. Yumiko taped the program and sent it to Betty. Yumiko was a good friend and associate of Chie. Yumiko has been continuing the correspondence with Betty since Chie's passing last year. Betty and Yumiko will be meeting for the first time in the upcoming convention in Fort Worth.

The English Angora segment starts with the photos of Emilia and Ashka. In the first picture, the logo of "Amazing Animals" is seen at the right corner. The second photo shows Ashka with five words that can be translated into "Unknown Animal!?"

Then the program follows a doe going through a pregnancy, giving birth and then the bunnies appear in the program in flesh. More will be reported in the future posts.

Just in case our readers wonder whether Betty received any compensation. Yes, there was a small payment for the use of the two photos.
