am named after both the Japanese anime Akira and the award winning cinematographer, Akira Kurosawa. “Akira” literally translated means “bright” and we Shibas are known for our fierce intellect. I like nothing better than taking long walks outside. My favorite walks are through the woods and through deep snow. I like to run and leap over fallen branches and brambles in the woods and track all of the scents. I love to plow my head through the deep snow leaving an Akira shaped furrow in my wake. My favorite treat of all time is the Alaskan Salmon yummie chummies. Of course I still prefer pot roast and fried fish, but I’m not getting a whole lot of that. Some people think it’s weird that I like to eat apples, carrots, bananas, and berries. I will eat black berries and boisenberries right off the plant. I really do love my little brother Shiro, even though I ignore him sometimes. He can be a real pest, but when it comes down to it, we are there for each other. Also, I am a good big brother and am very protective and have taught him many things.
