The First Year

They decied to name me Babes becuase of how loving and cuddly I was during the first week. Then, I decided to test my limits. First I made it clear that I was now the head of the household and every item would now be mine. I ate whatever I wanted when I wanted. One nice summer day as I sunbathed on the back deck I got bored. So do you know what I did? I ate not one but two of my owners lovely new wicker chairs. It did not stop there I also managed to get my paws on a lovely new pair of shoes, a very expensive night guard for teeth grinding, a computer charger and the list goes on. The second thing I was going to test was my new family's love and devotion for me. I became a door bolter just to see if they would chase after me, they did. By the third time I got them really mad and they crated me for a long while so I decided to lay off the door bolting (but I do admit it was very funny to see them chase me down the street holding treats in their hands yelling for me, finally when I felt like it I turned around ran right past them and into the house..oh how it still makes me laugh..but hey they really loved me).
I overheard them a few times saying they did not know what to do with me and if I didn't get better they might have to give me away. I thought to myself how lucky I was to live with such a nice family. I had a mother, father, two sisters, and Boo the Lhasa Apso who became my new favorite thing to stalk. So I decided to be a little better, not a whole lot better because as everyone should know Shiba Inus only listen when they feel the need to.

How it all began..

Let me just say that my family did not wake up one morning and expect that they would soon have a new addition to their family, a Shiba Inu. It all began when they decided to take a trip to the mall and as they where their they received a phone call asking to pick up some dog food. This was for boo, a three year old Lhasa Apso who would soon be my new big brother. As their shopping excursion came to the end they decided it would be convenient to just run into the pet store located into the mall. They hated going into this place seeing all the sad eyes from us dogs, so they decided to go in get the food and leave. I laughed at how simple they thought their plan would be. As my soon to be new mom waited in line she took a look around and it didn't take more than one glance to see me, a eight week old beautiful black, tan and white Shiba. She got out of line and walked over to the small cage I was sitting in. I knew at that moment I was going home with her. She took me into a small area and played with me, she loved me and I loved her. It was a only a matter of minutes she was signing the papers to bring me home. As she walked me through the mall to get to her car everyone was looking at me, I mean how could you resist such a gorgeous dog like me. We got into the car and she brought me to my new home.
