    Kira is a 4.5 month old cream Shiba Inu. She has brought so much joy to our lives, I thought it was time that I started a thread with her pictures.

    Thanks so much @Jazzie_L!!
    She is still such an amazingly smart puppy. We got so lucky with her, 5 months old and has never had an accident in the house. We couldn't have asked for more. The staff at our vet's office, doggy daycare, and the pet store all love seeing her. I feel like she's royalty, all the attention that she gets is insane. :)

    Kira is almost 7 months old and we continue to diligently socialize her. It's become harder, as the holidays are the busiest at my work and it's quite cold. I joined a meetup group that hosts group hikes with our dogs and we went on our first one today.

    Kira did great with the other dogs and had no trouble getting throught the 2.5 mile beginner hike! And now, pictures!!!

    Thanks @Saya, she is turning out to be a nice smaller, stockier Shiba which is what I really admired about your Saya! :)

    We went on another longer hike today and will hopefully go on many more when Spring finally comes. This one was over 5 miles, our longest hike yet and Kira did great!

    Kira update, it's been a while!

    Kira is 10 months old now. We went to the Richmond Pet Expo today and were able to meet @navydog and her beautiful Kai Ken, Yucca! My friend met us with her white Japanese Akita and we also saw a couple more Akitas there! We naturally gravitated to each other, excited to see each other's dogs. It was a great event!

    Here are the pics I got today!

  • @dragonfly - weird question but is your shikoku the one in the red harness? did you guys happen to go to the NIPPO show in Toledo last year? If so, I think I have video of your pup playing crazily while my dogs watch on in skepticism!

    @violet_in_seville - Yes, kiyoshi is the one in the red harness. But we were not at the NIPPO show last year, he's only 8 months old, I only just got him nov. of last year. Sounds like a funny video though lol

    Yucca and Kira are super cute together :)

    Thank you @WhoBitMe, @WrylyBrindle, @Dragonfly, and @NavyDog - Kira and Yucca got along great and their demeanors were so similar! Although it sounds like Kira is a little more affectionate than her... I really want to have a Kai Ken now!

    Yes Yucca is definitely not the affectionate type though she does have her own way of showing it. She's more like a cat. Most of the time she graces you with her presence but once in a while she will come over and rub against you, roll on your face, or lick you. I've heard that many Kai are major cuddle bugs so it's the luck of the draw I guess. I actually like her aloofness, my other dog is very emotional and will mope if she doesn't get enough attention. I think Shiba and Kai go really well together

    It's the fate of us dog lovers who love our put-up-with-ers. My wife, I'm sure feels the same way sometimes. She's always game to go do something, but I know a dog event isn't at the top of her list. She puts up with it because she loves me, just like I put up with going to a Richmond Squirrels game (which turned out to be a double header 8-}) yesterday because I love her and that's what she wants to do. Found out though that this Tuesday is Bark in the Park, so we're actually going to see a game with Hanzo :)) It's a rare couple where both partners wear even the metaphorical sweatshirt with their dog's face on it. Most of the time it's one or the other compromising.

    Camping Kira is so cute! Gosh, she's adorable. I'm glad she liked camping. I think Meitou would like camping as long as it wasn't with strangers, but I'm kind of afraid of camping.

    @tmd - We were at the Virginia Mountain Bike festival at the Stokesville campground in the GWNF. It was an awesome time and I even managed to convince @Kira_Inu to do some mountain biking (and she did great!) while we were up there. :-D

    There are tons of great hiking spots out that way, and it is probably only an hour and a half from you guys. Let me know if you are interested in some more info about the area (Shenandoah Mountain).

    Thanks everyone! Bella & Nola are determined to turn Kira into a watchdog, she was definitely more protective than she normally is.

    Kira is generally undaunted by most things, except for bugs. She loves to chase them. Sunyata's dogs were the same, they attacked flies the whole weekend!

    Kira's birthday will be this Thursday, June 19th and we celebrated early this past weekend. Kira will be a year old!!! :)

    Kira visited the ocean at Virginia Beach for the first time where we met up with a Kai Ken Yucca @navydog and Shikoku Kiyoshi @Dragonfly from the forum. That evening, we had a birthday party for her with her BFF, Penny the Chihuahua.

    The next day Kira went to a kite festival, my bf flies dual-line kites and it was a beautiful day!

    Here are the pictures from this past birthday weekend celebration for Kira's first birthday!

    Kira sees the ocean for the first time...

    She was kind of in awe of it

    It's so true! Kira missed her breakfast and that made her into Miss GrowlyPants. Kira was much sweeter after she had some food and a little nap at our brunch. Kiyoshi and Kira are definitely sweet on each other, that's why she gives him such a hard time! ;)

    I had such a blast with you two! We must do it again soon, Saturdays are best for me as long as work permits...

    It's been a while since I've updated or even been active for quite a while. Summer is always a busy time for me, going out of town or planning for vacation.

    During Fourth of July, I pet sat an older female Shiba, her name is Miko and she is 13 years old. She is such a sweet, old sage. Kira got along really well with her.

    Kira also gets along very well with our two cats - here she is getting kitty kisses from Lynx! She loves it.

    Kira's bf is a handsome white Akita, Buddy who is a few months older than her. She loves chasing and playing with Buddy!

    Aww, I miss Kira! She's such a sweetheart! Hanzo terrorizes the cat every chance he gets. He's just trying to play, but doesn't get that the hissing and smacking and growling isn't the cat playing too.

    Thanks everyone! We've passed the one year mark and I still try to take Kira for socialization outings at least once every week in preparation for the snarky and intolerant Shiba that I hear so much about.
    It's worth trying, at least. Right? :>

  • Kira has had a very busy week, it was all about her! On Tuesday, she visited my Mom at the beach.

    She had a date Friday night with her bf Buddy the Japanese Akita Inu.

    On Saturday, her bestie Yucca the Kai Ken came for a sleepover then an early Sunday morning hike on a local trail about 3 miles into Belle Isle.

    Omg! The first pic with Kira and buddy is so cute!! They are such an adorable couple! We had so much fun. Definitely gotta do it again sometime. Maybe we can talk @tmd into bringing Hanzo :)

    Kira is looking adorable as usual. I really like the happy, demon-eyed doggy friends picture.

    We totally would've been there if we hadn't already had plans out of town :((

    On the other hand, Hanzo had a fun hike up Smith Mountain above Smith Mountain Lake and got to see his first bear. He was definitely interested in trying to get closer. We had him leashed though, so thankfully all he could do was posture and not give chase. :D

    Kira met her brother, Jiro, who lives in GA this past weekend. They were traveling to visit family in DC.

    I also included a cute Christmas photo for good measure, being that it's the eve of Christmas Eve!

    Happy Valentine's Day everyone! :D

    I spent the day with my valentine, Kira @};- and we travelled to Hampton, Virginia to meet with fellow Nihon Ken friends at the World Of Pets Expo!

    Kira with her bestie, Yucca @navydog !

    Afterwards, we went to a friend's house and watched as 4 Shibas, 1 Kai Ken, and 1 American Staffordshire Terrier played in the yard for a couple hours.

    I have an update but this one will be without pictures.

    Much has happened in the last 6 months. We bought a new house in May and Kira turned two on June 19th. I was concerned that the new house with all hardwood floors would not be a smooth transition so since the closing date up until the day we moved (2 weeks later) I brought her with us to the new house.

    Kira loved the new house and transitioned so well after our move. We always crated her at the old house, but decided that a new environment was the perfect opportunity to test her to no longer be crated.

    We've been here 3 months now and have never had any issues with her. To date, since taking her home at 7 weeks, I'm proud to say that Kira has never had an accident in the house. For a Shiba, she is the best and most well behaved dog I've ever owned. Besides her stubbornness (she refuses to wake up earlier than 8am) I am convinced that my Shiba is "defective". :))
