Kuma the Shiba Inu’s Birthday 

Collage of three dogs’ pictures Yesterday was very special. We remembered our Veterans in the US, and it was also Kuma’s 12th birthday. He invited Riley and Tofu to his party, even though their energy is a little much for him.

Kuma’s dad brought him over, along with extra gifts. I made him his silly hat. He enjoyed his doggie churro!

I am so lucky to get to celebrate with such a special dog! He was my first Shiba, and will always be my baby.

Does anyone else throw their dog a birthday party?

Tofu, the Shiba Inu

A very important event that occurred last year was Tofu’s adoption. He was in a bad situation in a puppy mill, and he was offered to a rescue. I flew to Salt Lake City to pick him up from a volunteer so that he could fly home in the main cabin. He has been a wonderful brother to Riley Annabelle and now they are BFFs.

Sad interjection- Lambeau passed away, so there will be no further updates on him. He is still greatly missed, and Tofu is not a replacement in our hearts. He is, however, the new friend that Riley needed to cope with her loss.

Tofu turned one in August and struggles with anxiety, but now knows how to sit, shake, high five, and lay down. He loves treats and rough housing, and dislikes car rides, the vacuum cleaner, and obeying.

I can’t possibly resist his little face. Isn’t he just the cutest?!
