evil gophers

We got a huge gopher infestation in the backyard. I tried to dig these little guys out of the gopher holes but it is just not working except I ruin the lawn even more. My owner put a few stink bombs into the holes, trying to smoke them out, and can you believe it, they kicked the sticks out of the holes. Shibas are good hunters, but I am afraid I am out of my league with these guys so deep in the ground.

iditarod ending soon

The Iditarod race is ending soon. The mushers and the poor brave dogs had to face severe blizzard and several dogs died. Oh no. It was apprently the worse many mushers had ever seen with really cold temperature and strong wind. Many mushers decided to stay in the checkpoint cabins much longer to wait out the storm rather than to risk the lives of the dogs. These dogs are so brave. Awesome.

a big fat rat

Today I was helping one of my owners in the backyard -- actually he was working and I was just nosing around. Then I heard a noise among the stack of cement blocks. I frantically tried to push away the cement blocks so I can catch whatever was inside. My owner pushed me aside and lifted the blocks, and there was this big fat rat inside. I tried to pounce on it because we shiba inus are ferocious hunters. My owner grabed me and locked me inside the house. While he was there playing with that rat with a shovel, I was inside whining and scratching the door as all good hunters do. By the time he let me out to the backyard again, the rat was gone. Darn! I missed all the fun.

iditarod starting

The Westminster Dog show is like the beauty contest for dogs, while the Iditarod is like the Olympics for dogs. Only the strongest and most determined dogs can win. Check out It is starting this afternoon and the race will be 1500 miles. Wow, I get tired walking to the library which is a 2 miles walk. These are some awesome dogs.
