Ohno senior adopts Satoshi Ohno’s pet

Father and son have formed an emotional attachment to a pet the Arashi star found while filming his last drama, reports Cyzowoman on August 28.


While Satoshi Ohno was filming his spring drama 鍵のかかった部屋 (Kagi no Kakatta Heya), it has been reported the talent had shown an interest in the murder scene models his character made, and the various key lock props in his character’s office.  But one thing Ohno liked so much he decided to take home was the bearded dragon lizard カーギー (Kargie).  Kargie belonged to the pet shop used for a scene in episode 4, but after catching Ohno’s eye, he became a permanent member of the Kagi no Kakatta Heya team.


It has been reported during a radio episode of ARASHI DISCOVERY, Ohno said he would watch Kargie during shoots.

“I’d come back after an hour of shooting and it’d be still be standing in the same place as before.  I wonder what it’s thinking about…”


Kargie came home to Ohno’s house at the end of July.  The lizard had grown from 20 cm to 30 cm in length since Ohno had first seen him.


It has been reported the Arashi leader took the lizard to his parent’s house to show him off.

“[My drama finished so] I went to my parent’s house and said, ‘look, a lizard’.  Then I was meant to take it home and look after it, but by dad got attached to it more than me.”


Ohno senior has since adopted the lizard as his own, feeds it, cleans it, and looks after it’s cage.  But it has been reported, not everyone is equally happy.

“My mum doesn’t touch [Kargie].  They fight about it, like my dad would say, ‘touch it, touch it’, but she would argue back with, ‘no!  nooo’.  They look like they’re having fun (laughs).”

Koichi Domoto introduces his pet dog to 15,000 fans

Koichi Domoto (31) from KinKi Kids showed his affectionate side as he hugged and talked about his pet dog Pan-chan during his “BPM” Yokohama concert yesterday, reports Sports Hochi and Daily Sports.


During Monday’s concert, the singer said he had a special guest to introduce to everyone, and his pet dog Pan, a 21-month-old female chihuahua, walked on stage.


But with 15,000 fans cheering in front of her, it has been reported that Pan began to shake, to which a panicked Koichi came running to her side, scooping her into his arms and apologizing to his dog for giving her a fright.


Koichi said it had been his talent agency boss Johnny Kitagawa’s idea to bring Pan on stage, suggesting it would be nice to show her her owner at work.

“I told Johnny-san that if I was going to let her on stage, she would need to be signed up to the Johnny’s agency.  He cast that idea aside but maybe I push for it again,” Koichi said.


Koichi is in the middle of first solo tour in a year, which started on September 11 in Okinawa.  Using some of the most advanced lighting systems available today, the singer danced his way through 18 songs.

“On stage is the one place I can be myself the most.

“Do I have a girlfriend?  It’s quite difficult to find one now…but I’m happy,” he said.


The BPM tour continues until November 14, after which Koichi will perform in Kansai Yamamoto’s show, followed by the release of his first book in January titled “F1 – 僕が1人のファンになる時 (Boku ga hitori no fan ni naru toki, The time I become one of the fans)”, and another season of his stage show “SHOCK” from February.
