Don't we look proper and regal here. Actually, breakfast and dinners are chaotic. I would go near Nikki so that she would wag her tail at me, brushing all her pellets from her chair onto the floor. I then gobble them up because I love Nikki's puppy food better than my dry, weight loss pellets. Unfortunately, since Nikkie joined the family, I gained 2 pounds, and now fast approaching 20 pounds. It's all Nikki's fault ;-)

sending positive thoughts to all the shibas in Japan

Thinking about all the shibas and their owners, especially the followers of this blog. Wishing you the best in this difficult time. Lots of hugs and kisses from Kura (and the fluff ball Nikki).

How to be a Shiba

I'm currently teaching this little fluffball how to act like a shiba inu. This is for all you dogs out there who want to be like us majestic shibas.
Lesson #1: Be as lazy as possible. Always take up as much space as you can, preferably near your owners. When they get up, move over to their warm spot.
Lesson #2: Be a hunter! Always be on the lookout for birds, rats, or squirrels.
Lesson #3: Be very protective and loyal. Bark at anything that might threaten your owners (like cars passing by and squirrels.)

Nikki mastered the first lesson, but failed the next two. She loves sleeping, and falls asleep on our owners laps. But she's not so much a hunter. She likes to eat pebbles, twigs, and nibble on pine cones. She is the opposite of protective. When the dog next door barks, she runs away as fast as she can, and hides behind her owners.
As a teacher, I have a lot of work to do!
