I Am Shiba.

Dedicated to momentary thoughts and musings of A Shiba Inu.

"Country girl beauty is the literal meaning of the term soboku. The Shiba is beautiful in a manner that is natural, not contrived or artificial. She has a beauty that is simple, yet elegant, unsophisticated, yet poised. The Shiba is "the girl next door" of the dog world. She is always present, loyal and faithful with natural beauty; she does not push herself forward with a beauty that is cosmetic or artificial. "What you see is what you get" typifies the Shiba and the term Soboku." Shiba Inus: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual by Laura Payton.

As you can see, our beauty is natural, not contrived or artificial.
Hence, clipping our claws violates Soboku and thusly, we can (and will) scream loudly when forced into such an unnatural state.

I Am Shiba. I Make Sure the Neighbors Know when You are Violating my Soboku.
