I Am Shiba.

Dedicated to momentary thoughts and musings of A Shiba Inu.

Friday, July 09, 2010



This is Bartl. He was a littermate to the dogs that I use to try to beat up all the time. He was a dog who this morning, passed away from a lung cancer. Unfortunately, search and rescue dogs go places that have hazardous chemicals and contaminants. They die before they are supposed to.

He was the only certified civilian cadaver trained dogs in the Bay State Area. He traveled all over the country to help people. He was fearless and would often tread where humans were afraid to go.

The world is now an emptier place.

I Am Shiba. Rest In Peace, Good Boy.

Makes me think of all those S&R dogs that scoured the debris of the WTC after 9/11. These type of dogs truly are heroes!
