Hanging Out at the Madison Shiba Picnic

Took Roux to our local Shiba picnic. He liked meeting new folks but wasn't too excited about meeting their Shibas. There was quite a bit of snapping going on from Roux. But Mike & I enjoyed meeting some of the other Shibas, especially the group of puppies that were there and were so incredibly cute and friendly. We celebrated the fact that our Shiba wasn't the one to escape and be chased around the park by a group of picnic goers. Luckily he was captured safely after a decent time of being chased.

Roux's New Toy Makes Him DANCE!

Recently we got Roux a new toy from Petsmart. He loves it! Packed full of treats, this will keep Roux entertained for a while.

His toy even inspired a little Roux dance.

Summer Time Warning

As the weather gets warmer, we enter into a dangerous time for pets. A lot of folks just don't realize how dangerous it can be for animals to be left in a vehicle in the hot weather even for only a few minutes. Please visit for more information and for flyers you can print up to help educate others about this.

Update on Rex the Shiba

Roux, Mike, & I were very happy to hear today that Rex has found his forever home and will be officially adopted this Saturday! In the meantime, Rex's new family has asked for everyone's help with picking a new name for Rex to help with his fresh start. Please visit the Humane Society of Boulder CO website to help pick his new name for a list of great one! Also consider donating a few bucks to help out animals like Rex.

The names to choose from are:
YOSHI (Good luck)
KICHIRO (Lucky Son)
TOSHI (Bright, intelligent)
SABURO (Third son)
KAZUKI (Harmonious hope)

Tough choice! We can't decide between Yoshi and Kazuri, both ideas that we wish for Rex and his new family!

Hey You Guys! Check It Out...

Roux's on Twitter now! Check him out at

Rex the Shiba Inu

Some of you might have heard the news about the Shiba Inu who was taped to a fridge. If not here is a quick write up about the incident. Luckily Rex was rescued and was recovering at the local Humane Society. Just heard today that he is living in foster care with other Shibas, which is great news and we hope everything works out for Rex, and he finds a wonderful forever home real soon.

If you would like to donate to Rex's cause, please visit the Humane Society of Boulder CO.

I'd also like to suggest donating to your favorite Shiba Inu rescue. Luckily taping Shibas to fridges isn't commonplace but plenty of wonderful Shibas do get abused or just end up in bad situations. So many Shiba rescues are doing great work finding those dogs loving homes. Let's help them out!

Roux is an alumni of Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue, home of the Shiba Shoppe. I own plenty of the shiba magnets and water bottles. Maybe now I should get some of those great Shiba wine glasses!
