Katsumi’s Diary: My sisfur is cuter than me!???

Dear Diary, Today iz very bad day. My sisfur Kuri is a junky sisfur!!!!!!!!! Mommy & Daddy entered us in Hawaii Doggie Bakery’s Model contest. Hawaii Doggie Bakery iz looking for a bunch of cute doggies to use in their advertising for their Bakery. I love Hawaii Doggie Bakery, and I’m cute so CLEARLY I should win this contest. Mommy and Daddy spent days…DAYS looking for my bestest picture so that I could win it for the Shibas. My furiends Irezumi, Rocky, Aiko & Blazer were worthy contenders as well, but I knew I had it in the baggie. BUT THEN KURI FIREFOX WENT AND STOLE MY WIN FROM ME!!!! Mommy and Daddy only spent seconds…SECONDS looking for her picture because she is not as cute as me. How iz dis possible?!?                       WUV, ~Katsumi Firefox   *EDIT* So Mommy had a talk with me…she said I should be happy for my sisfur, and that I should support her by teaching her some of my modeling tips. Well…maybe I should… I CHANGED MY MIND! NEVER!! TAKE THAT KURI!! ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~- From Shiba Inu Hawaii: Congrats to Kuri Firefox! May you represent your Shiba ‘Ohana well! (and don’t worry about Katsumi, she’ll come...
Katsumi’s Diary: Raise your paws up if you’re blowing your coat!

Katsumi’s Diary: Raise your paws up if you’re blowing your coat!

Dear Diary, Our house iz nice and furry right now because sisfur and I are BOTH blowing our coats!  Mommy & Daddy iz very furrrrustrated because they sez their clothes get covered with fur!  Why does that make them upset?  They should be happy ’cause I knows that we has really pretty coats, and maybe they would look better if they had Shiba coats too! Blowing my coat feels so nice and free, and I likes the relaxing brushing that my human slaves — I mean, parents give me.  Kuri duzn’t like the brushing too much.  Sometimes she likes it, but yesterday she started screaming!!  I just rolled my eyes and turned my head the other way.  Get over it, sisfur! The only thing I dun like about blowing coats is that Mommy & Daddy bring out that loud MONSTER like almost every day!  It is so loud and scary!  Sisfur and I make sure to bark to tell the Monster that we are in charge!!!  …sometimes the Monster gets too close, though, and we gets scared.  I MEAN, I AM SO BRAVE!   I AM SO VERY BRAVE! I wonder if any of my Shiba friends are blowing their coats too… Wuv, Katsumi...
Shiba Inu Hawaii Humor: Rubbermaid makes Shibas?

Shiba Inu Hawaii Humor: Rubbermaid makes Shibas?

Much like Rubbermaid, these are also containers for food: I didn’t know that Rubbermaid had special prizes in this 50 piece set! We were cleaning the house, and Katsumi & Kuri Firefox decided to help by volunteering to hold our food instead of using tupperware. Do you have a funny picture of your Shiba?  Submit it to...

Photos from our February 2011 Shiba Inu Hawaii Playdate!

Our February 2011 Shiba Inu Hawaii Playdate was held this past weekend at Hawaii Kai Dog Park.  We had 44 Humans and 30 Shibas in attendance!  Wow!  We sure are growing as a group, and it’s so great to have all the Shibas spend time with one another! Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get pictures of every single Shiba this time and there are a few Shibas that we have pictures of whom we have no idea who they are!  So many Shibas…it’s hard to keep track!  For our next Playdate, please make sure to sign in and write down what kind of collar/harness your Shiba is wearing.  This will help us out a lot when we’re sorting out the pictures. Shibas in attendance (in no particular order): Mayu Emi Bearfox Taki-Boy Madison Kaia Rika Mika Musashi Sammie Yuki Hina Hiro Yumi Hime Kuma Katsu Azuki Mika (honorary Shiba) Zumi Katsumi Firefox Kuri Firefox First time attendees: Kokoro Toshi Yota Hana Mikie Bebe Kaze Jiro Rocky Paws up!  Caught in the act!
