Shiba In Tolland Pound!

The Woman nor I do not recognize this Shiba even though it was found very close to our home. She is well mannered and demonstrates many normal Shiba characteristics so it is apparent that she has been socialized and has been trained and housebroken.

It appears that she had been running wild for several days, before Animal Control was able to bring her into a safe place but she needs a new home. If you are interested, her adoption fee is $50 which included a voucher for Spay & shots. For more information, call Tolland Animal Control @ 860-871-3676. If you know who she is or who she belongs to, please also call.

I Am Shiba. The Puppies Are Back!

This is Katan. He is our area's most recent Shiba Inu addition, a nice red sesame who is enjoying his transition from a rural dog to an urban go getter.

He is a 4 year old male from
Sundog Shibas. The People went to New Hampshire last weekend to help move him to a new family here. He is the first Shiba to ride in "the New Car," which did not impress me. He also took a ride in My Car, which also did not impress me.

Of course, just because there are four people admiring you, doesn't mean that you should be paying attention to them. Instead, there are always more interesting things to see outdoors.

Katan moved into his new house in about the same way that Belle moved into mine. He immediately took over a couch, identified several sleeping spots, and grabbed his own squeeky toy that he carries with him everywhere. He will be living comfortably as an only dog, well adored by a family that has been wanting a Shiba for some time.
Of course, The Woman did the full questionnaire regarding their sanity since they wanted a Shiba but they passed with flying colors. They knew what they were getting into, and Katan immediately started to use his "cuteness" factor to achieve his status of worship.

Bored after too many pictures. These pictures were taken 5 days after Katan had arrived and started to settle into his new environment. There was no dog fur visible. Katan and I have walked together without difficulty, marking a few shrubberies along the way but otherwise, just enjoying the scenery.
Katan had a quiet life up in Northern New Hampshire but it was time for him to become a pet. When The Woman heard that this family was seeking a Shiba, she knew that Katan would be the dog for them and while it took some time because of weather and planning to bring Katan here to my home town, he is now enjoying the status of a pampered pet. As every Shiba Inu should.

A boy and his Shiba.

I Am Shiba. As Long As He Knows I Am 1st In Command In This Town, All Is Well.

I Don't Want My Picture Taken

I am guessing that this is why The Woman has me on L-Thyroxin Sodium .2 mg X 2 per day which does not amuse me in the least and sometimes she even gives me a Benadryl to stop me from scratching at my face because she does not want me to have the cone of Shame.

I am not amused.

I hate taking pills.

I hate feeling itchy.

I hate that stupid chipmunk who keeps escaping from me.

I don't feel sick. I am not acting sick but everyone seems to think that I am.

Pfooey to all of you.

I am fine.

Now, leave me alone while I go sulk in my crate.

I Am Shiba. I Don't Feel Handsome Right Now.
