In case you haven’t heard, the Obama family has decided on a breed of dog– a Portuguese Water Dog. We understand Shiba Inu are not hypoallergenic, but we still kind of hoped they might get one. On the other hand, it’s probably good that they didn’t because the shiba inu puppy cam caused enough unprepared peeps to get shibas. We are quite a handful.

Speaking of Shiba (and not Shiba), Rudolf and Goofy gave us a friends bloggy award!

Meet Duke

Meet Duke

Our Sis, being the animal lover that she is, is volunteering at the Humane Society in Pittsburgh to walk dogs. We wish she were walking us, but if she can’t be, we are happy to share her with dogs in need. She was really sad when she was reading the papers of a dog named Duke because under reason for surrender, it said that Duke’s family had gotten a new pet and the new pet didn’t get along with Duke! What? Throw out the old when you get a new? The new dog better watch out if the family gets tired of him too. Now, we don’t know all the circumstances, so perhaps we are being harsh, but it just made us sad too. Duke is kind of a cousin to us because he is part Akita, the big brother dog of the Shiba Inu. He’s also part Pit Bull, is brindled in color, and is just over a year old. If you’re in the PGH area, and are looking for an awesome dog, go visit Duke. You can read more about Duke and the Sis’s experiences at the Humane Society at her blog.

Lots of Luv,

Akira and Shrio

Resting Spots

February 7, 2009

Sometimes it’s good to cuddle up to a person. I always like napping in the crook of the Sis’s legs, and sometimes Akira likes to rest next to one of our people on a couch. Sis is wearing my pants, they are the pants she wears especially for me to lay on and lets me suck and nibble on them, but no other pants. they are warm flannel with little dogs on them! Akira is laying by Dad’s big ol’ feet.
