Welcome to Shiba...What?

I chose that name because that was probably the first thing I said when I heard about the breed. And, I get that quite often when I have the girls out and they meet new people. Most people have never heard of the breed, although we do occasionally run into someone who actually knows what they are! I do know one thing and that is Shiba owners love to see other Shibas and read about other Shibas. I recently came across I Am Shiba and within a few days, read the whole blog. Many times I found myself laughing so hard I was on the verge of tears. LOL While not every dog is the same, there are enough similarities. Through this blog, I would love to share how I came to have these two beautiful girls, what we have been though and what we are up to. Occasionally even the girls will add their input, they can be very opinionated you know.

EWWWWWWWEEE Yuck! Or.....Sami gets the prize

I guess it all depends on who is looking at it.  This morning we went for our usual walk.  We go down into the park area more since we found the stolen items there.  We have had a rash of thefts in the area that is escalating and everyone in the neighborhood is on high alert.

There is one area of the park in particular that seems to have a lot of mole activity and Sami and Miko love to sniff around there.  Well, Miko was sniffing at this one area and Sami rushed over there to see what was going on.  They were sniffing and sniffing and sniffing.  Then in the blink of an eye, BAM!!!!, Sami plucked a nice plump mole right out of its tunnel!

I of course was freaking out, trying to get her to drop it.  She was not going to give up her prize that easily.  I was not wanting to try and open her mouth to get her to drop it.  Finally after telling her numerous times to drop it, she finally let go of her prize and I pulled both dogs away.  It just laid there, so I'm not sure if she hurt it or if it was just playing dead.  Just goes to show how strong their natural instinct to hunt is, no training required!  And because of that, I did tell her what a good girl she was, we just weren't going to take it home with us.  LOL

Two are more fun then one.
