I Am Shiba.

Dedicated to momentary thoughts and musings of A Shiba Inu.

Sunday, April 26, 2009


I have decided to make Belle-chan my sidekick. This way, I don't have to do as much work as in the past and yet, I can reap the benefits of being all that is Shiba. Furthermore, it makes me look better.

For example, yesterday, The People took us on a very nice hike in the woods. Belle-chan barked and offered to attack the following:

1 Black and White Akita
1 Very Obese Golden Retriever

1 Blue Tick Hound
1 Pit Bull That Was Jogging With Its Person
2 Small Furry Dogs of Unknown Origin
Several hikers Who Just Happened to be on The Same Path as Us

and while she did all this, I merely sat back and watched. T
he People implemented "training techniques" in their attempt to dismiss her very unladylike behavior (most of the dogs, she was merely telling them, Hey, I am a Champion, Are you a Champion? No? Then Get Outta These Woods Now- They Are Mine!) which, in my opinion, Belle-chan has all rights to brag about her Alphabet Soup.

So what is nice about having a sidekick is that She does all the work and I get all the Glory. She chases off all other dogs in the Name of the Shiba, and I get to be The Commander of Shibas because Belle-chan is too busy to notice my subtle leadership takeover.

Plus, with her asserting our Shibaness, everyone thinks that I am so well-behaved. It's a nice change. That Guy has decided to nickname her "Little Miss Disaster" because of her ability to cause complete chaos in such a serene wood.

Does this look like a dog who can conquer the Earth without subtle suggestion and assistance?

I Am Shiba. Having a Sidekick Is Cool.

Nice to have such a cute side kick.

Bella-chan, calm down. It's not nice to bark at an old Retriever dog. He probably wants to play with you. You should learn from the examples of Sir Cortez how to be a calm Zen dog.

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt...be silent shiba and make them guess.
