A second dog!



We are absolutely delighted to announce that our search for a second dog has ended. We have decided to adopt Essie from Loki's breeder. She is 3 years. In her last pregnancy, she only had one pup and she had to have a c-section. Apparently, when you only have one pup, labor is harder, because there are no other pups to help stir labor. (But what happens to the last pup of every pregnancy? Isn't that the same?) In any case, there were sufficient complications that she required a c-section, and consequently, she will no longer be bred.

Right now, she is still being a mother to her little pup, so we will have to wait a couple of months before we get her.

Wow that's great. I wonder how Loki would feel about not being the center of attention!

awesome! im anxious to see the behavioral differences you find between boy vs. girl doggies, and 3 year old vs. 2 year old :)

Hey there,
your blog is so informative for first-time shiba buyers. I was wondering if you had any references for shiba breeders? Thanks!!

She is really, really beautiful.

Ever since I saw Azuki half sister Reina, I always thought our second Shiba should definitely be a girl :)

Very curious how Loki will accomodate the idea of "sharing" :)

I am so glad Essie is going to a good home. She is the mom of our Shiba, Soba. We decided to adopt Soba after seeing how wonderful Essie was.

Soba -- Wow, it's a small world.
