I love Shiba Inus. I do. I wouldn’t trade in Kenji for ANYTHING! But as we all know, even the things that we love can drive us crazy.
Here are a few things about Kenji that drives me bonkers! Let us know what about your Shiba makes you nuts!
WALK! WALK! WALK!
Some days when I take the pup out for a stroll, I want to cover some serious ground. But with all of his start/stops, it sometimes takes forever to walk a block. And forget about jogging! This guy quits on me after a few minutes.
Kenji has his nose working overtime, putting any hound to shame. I don’t mind giving him time outside to explore, but sometimes we just gotta move.
When another dog is spotted across the street or down the block, Mr. K will turn his head, refusing to look forward. It’s ridiculous to the point that he has walked into a tree.
This nosy guy finds chicken bones everywhere! And once he starts to chew on one, it’s very difficult to get it out of his mouth. I get worried that he’ll choke to death on one. Stress!
Having a Shiba instantly puts you on the map. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorists all stop in their tracks to pay tribute to the superior breed. Who can blame them! But sometimes your simply not in the mood to entertain! Those are days I think having a big stupid Lab would be a lot easier.
Being a flight risk, I am constantly checking Kenji’s leash to make sure it’s secured. I also have to print signs on the doors in the house so that people understand the severity of the situation.
Owning a Shiba is super rewarding, but it’s not without it’s headaches too! Totally worth it — I just needed to rant!
Now it’s your turn…
