Jujube, Expert Fly Killer

Who needs a fly swatter when you have a Jujube? She keeps her eye on the prize and nothing stands in her way. Not even a wall... Yep, I've seen her run full force into a wall as she was chasing a fly. She stays focused on her prey and nothing can distract her. When I see her running around the entire house like a ninny, I know that there must be a fly.

This morning on our walk, a fly landed on her tail. How dare it rest on her tail! No fly lands on Jujube and lives. Bam! In an instant, the fly was dead. Jujube didn't eat the fly. She just killed it. I had to brush the dead fly out of her bushy tail.

I only hope that she never meets a bee.

That must be a small feat for Juju. This is the breed that can fight against the wild boars if challenged. Having no fear against bigger animals but don't engage in unnecessary fights is the trait of this breed -- meaning "Kan-i".

P.S. How did she catch the fly in her tail ... and left it there?

Yeah, I didn't really understand it either. One minute a fly landed on her tail. Bam! She chomped on it, but then left the dead fly in her bushy tail.

She is definitely fearless, but I'm mostly amazed by her speed. Flies are hard to catch... well, at least for mere humans.

I'm pretty sure she has already met a bee. There's a dead on in the bedroom that I had found this morning.

Snick used to do that too, until he killed - you guessed it - a bee! He had an allergic reaction to the sting in his mouth. I had to rush him to the vet. It took over two years for him to get over his fear of flying insects!

(whoops!) Yuki does the same thing with the flies and bees and flying bettles... (beatles... betals?!) ! She just kills them and on her merry way she goes.

Hi Anon, who is 14 --

I'm glad that my blog has been useful to you.

I think it's great that you want to get a shiba, but first you should make sure that your parents are 100% on board with the idea. Have they had dogs before? Are they familiar with shibas? I suggest that you make sure they know all about the breed. It's not a breed for everyone.

I highly recommend getting one from a reputable breeder. Don't get one from a pet store or over the internet.

I don't know if there is much difference between male and female. I think male was recommended to me at first, which is why we got Loki first. But Jujube is an absolute sweetheart, so a girl might be a great choice too.
