lizard feast

Wow, it seems that my online shiba buddies Mika and Winnie also like lizards. Today I found a bunch of them, and caught another one, but my owner quickly made me drop it again (that dreaded command), and built a "lizard sanctuary" to block off an area of rocks and dirts where a bunch of lizards were hanging out so I cannot get to them. No worry, Mika and Winnie, next time I hit a stash of lizards, I will let you know and we can chow down together while no one is looking :-) Woof.

lizard! yum!

Yesterday I was out in the backyard enjoying the sun and I caught a lizard. I decided to eat it. My owner caught me with lizard tail and legs dangling out of my mouth and made me drop it. Don't know what is the big deal. It's good protein.

ode to Kura

In the wild wild west of Silicon Valley,
Lies a shiba inu named Kura.
Who loves eating blueberries in a way that is sloppy,
And hangs out with her best friend Hoppy.
She prowls the backyard for field rats and gophers,
Then catches a flying bird in a single bound, a blur.
Her passion is her family day and night,
Whom she loves and protects with all her might.
Her fearsome barks can scare a burgler on the prowl,
If not, at least charms him with her shiba howls.
. . . . . . . . . . by Kura's owner

According to my online shiba buddies Winnie, Mika and Jen, shibas do get allergies from pollens such as oak and dandelion, and even cockroaches. Wow. My allergy is probably from the pine trees from our neighbors where whenever there is a gust of wind, there is this thick yellow cloud of pollens that lands on our deck. With such a wet winter here in northern California, we got a lot of stuffs blooming. Sometimes I sneeze 10 times in a row, and once in a while hit my nose on the floor. Ouch! My allergy seems to be getting better, but my owners will keep benedryl and eye drops in mind next time I get an allergy attack.

I just got back from the PetsHotel. A few days ago, my owners dropped me off, claiming to have some family emergency. I was really popular there, and all of the PetsHotel Staff loved me. The hotel had playgroups where I hanged out with other dogs. They even got doggie ice cream and phone time where owners can call up their dogs and talk to them on the phone. My owners never did that though. I got a great report card for being a social dog. Glad I am back!

Today my owners found a ball of yarn, and one of them rolled it right in front of my face. Naturally, I pounced and played with the ball of yarn. Soon I got tangled up and uninterested. My owners laughed at me, and called me a cat.

dogs also have hay fever?

I have been sneezing a lot every morning when I wake up. It is allergy season here in northern california with everything blooming and tons of pollens. My owners are all having runny nose and sneezes. Now I get them too. I did not realize dogs are allergic to pollens too? Or is it just me?
