A Puppy In The White House!

Dear Lord, get out the carpet cleaner and get ready for some good times. President-Elect told his daughters that they are getting the puppy that they have wanted when they go to the White House.

Now I know, there are many of us thinking- A Shiba in the White House- what an excellent idea- but I stand firm in stating, what a disaster this could be!

First of all, Shibas may be easy to house break but have you seen the size of that house?? Can you imagine picking up a puppy and running down 4 flights of stairs to toss us into the Rose Garden so that we might - MIGHT- decide that this is an appropriate place to relieve ourselves? Remember, some of us don't like eliminating in our own yard. Maybe the Congressional Lawn looks better. Oooo, a bug . . .

Secondly, I suspect that the housekeeping staff will have something to say about when we "blow our coats," the cooking staff will not be entertained by our ingenious methods of food theft and finally, will they have to call Cesar Milan in order to assist in training? The groundskeepers will be unimpressed by our landscaping skills; after all, these roses bushes are just in the way of any potential shrew or mole hunting.

You may think you are President of the United States of America but let's be frank. I am a Shiba. That speaks mountains louder than your role in national and international affairs.

But finally, let us all remember that these folks will be first time dog owners and as everyone knows, a Shiba requires someone who has "experience" in understanding the workings of our mind. Like there is anyone who qualifies in that department . . .

(am I suggesting a new Cabinet post- the Department of the Shiba? Now there is an idea!)

So, let's us all get over our excitement of the White House getting a puppy and stand firm that this puppy- no matter how great we are- not be a Shiba. Our place is better infiltrating society in a slow but steady rate rather than achieving the glory the a White House position would give our breed.

We do best incognito on unsuspecting people. A White House position will only blow our cover of eventual world dominance.

I Am Shiba. Get a Puggle. They Can Snore and Howl.

Amen, Shiba! I'm with you...! Although, all of us Shibas DESERVE to be in places of great honor and glory (aka Imperial Palaces, the White House, Taj Mahal, etc...)

Shiba screams during presidential speeches. Not a good idea. How about a nice rescue puppy who needs a family to love them.

posted this to Huffington Post blog on the first puppy.

Good write up -- actually saw it as an opportunity to educate about Shibas.

I went looking for your link but I did see two posts for Shiba Inus on that blog (before my eyes collapsed upon themselves), which openly states that the girls have allergies to pet dander. Promoting your own breed just for the sake of promoting; it is never a good idea to suggest a Shiba to someone with allergies.

Could not find Sukoshi's Mom's post- after all the stupid jokes about pitbulls named Sarah wearing lipstick, I decided to read the Washington Post . . .

(but thanks for attempting to educate the masses :shiba grin:

P.S. I think doing a Shiba 500 in the White would ROXXOR!

From the I.AM.SHIBA blog.


For those not familiar with the Shiba Inu (Sheba Enu- Inu=dog), this is a small hunting dog from Japan. They look like miniature Akitas and are spitz-type dogs. They are wonderful dogs, but generally not for the first time dog owner. They are very smart, independent, blow their coats twice a year, and are great escape artists. In this blog, the Shiba explains why a Shiba may not make a good first puppy!
