North Carolina and Belle-chan

Since the question has been asked, Belle-chan has arrived to North Carolina in a style that can only be considered as her own. Belle-chan came down to The New House about a week before me, and quickly made it clear that the Shibas are arriving.

Our household has already been reported to the leasing office as two friendly Labradors approached for a meet and greet, and she immediately put them in their place. She frequently tells off the Rottweiler that we see walking in the late evening. There are too many doors in the hallway and she can't figure out which one is the front door (which I add, I have already accomplished). She is very aware of the kitchen layout, and seldom misses any dropped food. As a result, The Child who is staying with us is usually followed by a Shiba wagging its tail.

Very uncouth behavior, in my humble opinion.

Her biggest issue is that she has yet to blow her coat but she has started. The warmer temperatures obviously took her by surprise so now she is dropping fur left and right. Belle-chan obviously did not research the environment and temperatures prior to her move, unlike myself who shed my coat before arriving.

I have a feeling it won't be coming back any time soon.

I am not sure North Carolina was ready for Belle-chan but Belle-chan is certainly ready to take on North Carolina.

I Am Shiba. We Arrive In Numbers.

Glade to hear Pi's mom has arrived to NC. Now she can show those southerns what a beautiful Shiba Inu looks like before a blown coat.

We have about five minutes before she officially explodes.

it's times like these that our Bissels just keel over and die.

I'm so glad the shiba & belle-chan are settling in nicely!

Poor Belle. Sir Cortez, in spite of his northern upbringing, has the advantage of being temperamentally suited to life as a southern gentleman. Born and bred in the Pacific Northwest, and raised in Northern New England, Belle is by nature and nurture a true northern gal. She talks fast, thinks fast, moves fast, is easily bored, is reserved with strangers, and is direct and forward in her overall approach to life. It's going to be tough adjustment, for Belle and for the state of North Carolina!
