Hey you dogs out there! Happy Halloween! Wait, did i say happy? Halloween is not happy. Why? As you guys know, It isn't nice that this evening, kids like to boldly arrive at other dog's territories begging for candy. Well i have some advise. There are the three steps toward no more kids coming. I use them every year.

1. When someone comes, bark. naturally.

2. if you are let out, steal *ahem* i mean borrow some candy. it makes them get scared and they go away. usually.

3. chocolate? dont eat it. trust me. (for more information, visit the post: poisonous food for dogs in cats from march)

i guarenteed that if you are ferocious enough, you will suceed.

math genius

Scientists did a study of honeybees and found that they can count to 4. When will human learn that other creatures are good in math too. For example, I am called a "geometry dog" by my owners because I always lie equal distance among my owners. If one is upstairs and one is downstairs, I lie at mid point between them in the middle of the stairs.

Ahh! That feels good

October is almost over. With the cooler weather, my owners are using the hot tub more. They don't let me go into the hot tub because they think it is not safe for a dog. But these Japanese monkeys seem to be having a good time relaxing in the natural hot spring.

Food, glorious food!

If only catching those lizards and crickets in the backyard is that easy.

bully in training camp

Today I went to my training camp again. There was a big black dog there that has been terrorizing all the dogs in the camp. One tiny teacup poodle was so scared last time that he would not come out from under the bench. Well, this dog was getting really close to me, right at my face, so I growled and snapped at her but did not touch her. Wouldn't you know it, the dog backed off even though that dog was twice my size. Ha! That dog did not go near me again. Shiba power!

adorable me

This past weekend, we had two birthday parties, and I was the center of attention (and Hoppy too). I was friendly, cuddly and cute. I used my big brown eyes to make people pet me. I pawed them to make people scratch my neck. I ran around them to make them gawk at how athletic I am. Once in a while, I stealth lick people hands because they smell like potato chips, cookies, and pizza. For all you attention loving shibas out there, these are good tactics to get people to love you.

blessing of the animals

Once a year in October my owners take me to their church for the blessing of the animals day. Yesterday I got a bath and a nice brush with the furminator so that I can look and smell nice for today's service. Hoppy refused to be on her leash so my owners took her in her pink carrier.
There must have been over 100 dogs of all breeds in the church, along with cats and hamsters. Every year there were these horses there but this year the horses did not come. I met a lot of very nice dogs, and most dogs behaved so niced during the sermon and stood in line nicely to receive our blessing. I like going to church for the blessing. I think every church should have it.

another day at training camp

Today I learned the "leave it" commend. My owner leaves a doggie cookie on the floor, and I was to ignore it and go straight to my owner when called. I had no problem with the command since I am not that into doggie cookies. But if it were blueberries, that would be another story.
