I was raised around animals all my life, and I love them. My first dog was an Australian Shepherd, and because her AKC name was so long we named her Cinders. When she passed away we got a Cocker Spaniel who was afraid of his own shadow lol. So my mom ended up having to give him away. Then we got a poodle name Regie, who was a lot of fun. When I grew up, and left home and started a family, we had to get a dog, because they bring so much joy into your life. I went and rescued a beautiful Doberman name Mandy, where she lived a good life. With my 3 children now grown, gone and starting there own lives I decided to get me another dog. I was looking for a Westie when I stumbled across the Shiba Inu puppy cam on you tube. That was it, I fell deeply in love, and the more I read about them, the more I had to have one. That was how I ended up raising Shiba Inu's, and my life has been enriched because of it.
