Getting to Know Me

June 24, 2007

We had a surrrprise visit from Sis and her friend Crystalee, who has hair the color of Akira’s today. It was too short, but nice anyways. Today I’m going to post this survey that’s been going around, then maybe Akira will post his answers tomorow.
Luv,
Shiro

  2. Your age when came to live with your people? 6 wks

No. The lady who works at the Vets does it, but only when my Daddy holds me close to his chest or I scream like a banshee (at least that’s what they say, I don’t think so. Not sure what a banshee is, but I think I scream like an indignant Shiro who doesn’t want part of my body cut off!)

  20. When & why was the last time you went to the V.E.T.? last time had to get the rabies booster (not long enuf ago)
  21. Where do you sleep at night? On my couch. Unless I get hot, then on the floor, then back on the couch when I’m cold again.
  22. Do you like to swim? Never tried, but I hate the bathtubs.
  23. Can you make puppies? No. is it any wonder i don’t want them to take my toenails? didn’t they take enough?
  24. Your favorite place to visit? park
  25. Do you give kisses? oh yes
  26. Can you potty on command? if i want to
  27. To Cuz or not to Cuz? Cuz!

Way back when I was a tiny puppy, my favorite place to hang out was under the couch. Now, I can still get under there if I breath in real deep and shove myself in, and I do when the Cuz gets lost under there or something, but back when I was smaller, I used to just chill under the couch. It was shady, there were cool things hanging down to play with, I could pull out stuffing if I got bored, I could make a quick getaway from Akira when we were wrestling, ah those were the days. Now Sis just found these never-before-seen-on-the-Internet-pictures of me in my glory days. Hope you enjoy them. I know I enjoyed it when it happened!
Luv,
Shiro

Stud Muffins R Us

We will occasionally humor Sis and pose for her incessant pictures!
A&S

Sis thinks it’s funny when one of us does this. Akira does it to, but it’s not been recorded by film yet. Here’re some pics of me walking on top of the couch. Sis says I look like a kitty cat when I do that. Well, I never….
Luv,

Shiro

Sis caputred a picture of us laying really really close together, which she says is rare, but she doesn’t know what it’s like when no people are home!
Luv,
Akira & Shiro

Father’s Day

June 19, 2007

Sarah and Shiro with their Daddy!

We were extra nice to our Dad on Daddy-Day! We told him he could take long naps with us, kick back on the couch, have a nice steak dinner with us, and then go for a refreshing evening walk! Aren’t we good sons? We are our Dad’s little athletes, we like to play ball with him and wrestle. Happy Daddy Day!

Sis was on our Brother’s old computer and found these never-before-seen-on-the-Internet pictures from Shiro’s 1st Day home! Enjoy!

Long Time No Lick

June 19, 2007

Hey pals!
We are so sorry we haven’t posted in a while, but the good news is our Sis has visited us bunches and bunches in the last couple of weeks, so we have so many new pictures to post now! She is good about taking pictures. Plus our Mom got a new digital camera herself, and she can’t resist snapping photos of us either. We really should start charging for our modelling time! We will be posting the pics under new separate posts so that they are easier to find later :-). We look forward to catching up with you all very soon! Our Sis has actually been having medical problems, so we’ve been busy taking care of her when she was here!

Luv,
Akira & Shiro
