There's a new Japanese film about Shibas. It is based on a true story about how a Shiba mom and her three puppies survived the 2004 earthquake in Yamakoshi Village. You can read about the original story here. The movie website is all in Japanese, so I don't understand it, but there are a few cute pictures.
I want to go see it!!! The puppies are so adorable!
You can see the movie trailer on You Tube here. Warning: It is sad. You might cry. I cried and I didn't think I would.
