The Woman Shops

Every now and then, The Woman just lets go. She tires of buying her clothes at the Salvation Army, coupon clipping, and worst of all, discovering that there is never ever anything on sale anywhere that involves or has Shibas (she paid 12 dollars in a pet store for some Shiba Stationary, and it was the only Shiba item in the store!).

Except for the Internet.

So, to indulge herself, The Woman contacted Eriko Yatabe-Waldock (
myredcattledogs@hotmail.com) and placed an order with Shiba Inu Pottery. It was a small order of two small decorative plates, but they are beautiful. Each image actually does look like a Shiba.

She has already decided that after Christmas, she will be buying more Shiba pottery as one can never have enough Shiba in their lives. Two real plates for evening meals. Alas, I will be stuck with my same old dog bowl because of her selfishness (maybe she will let me lick the plate clean?)

The second thing that The Woman purchased is her yearly Japanese import of the Inu Seryu calender from Happy Buffay- The Woman's Japanese Internet Contact (see the story about the ad on the Misanthropic Shiba of a stuffed Shiba doll, asking Maki to translate, then find the doll and send it our way. Again, sometimes you just have to do what you have to do). This calender beautifully portrays the relationship of the Japanese and their Shibas in their daily lives. It not just a posed calender like one finds here in America but rather very select pictures of Shibas living their lives in their home country. Maki's storefront can be found here.

One thing to note: when purchasing items from Japan, be prepared that the shipping costs are almost as much as the item itself.

But its worth it in the end because there is no such thing as too much Shiba.

I Am Shiba. You Can Never Have Too Many Images of Me.

I understand completely....my Mom found a Shiba Inu sticker in a pet store in Moab, Utah of all places and had to have it. Never too much Shiba indeed.

I wouldn't want to contribute any more to the fame, money, or commercializm of the Shiba-6. Besides, now they're all grown up, they'll be just another shiba inus, aren't they?

I'd rather buy Cortez & The Woman's calendar, if such exist (hey, is that an idea?)
