Now, on to the adorable dogs. Jerry and I have been considering, for quite some time, the adoption of a needful dog as a final (for now) addition to our small menagerie. Today, I think we found the breed we are looking for. One look at a Shiba Inu and we were googly-eyed. Then we went to a local pet store to look at the cute puppies, not expecting to find anything close to what we were looking for. But lo and behold, there was a Shiba Inu. We asked to take a look at it and we got to play with her for a little bit. She was a lovely dog. I wish she was here with us right now, but at the price of $829, we opted to leave her there and pursue other avenues. Besides, I have a general aversion to pet stores when there are so many animals at shelters and humane societies caring for animals in real need of good homes. So I have found a Shiba Inu rescue that coordinates new homes with dogs in need for a much smaller fee. Now, I only hope they find our application worthy of caring for one of these little balls of furry fun. Keep your fingers crossed for us!!!
