10 random facts about us that might surprise you

  1. We have never purchased a dog bed. Really. Never.  I cut Yun’s old college comforter into 4 quarters and sewed up the sides. Two of the pieces go into each of the crates. The other two pieces are scattered around our home to be used as dog beds.
  2. We don’t celebrate our dogs’ birthdays. We acknowledge that it is their birthday (see here, here, and here), but other than that, we don’t celebrate it.
  3. Each dog has one martingale collar/leash set and one additional collar that stays on at all times. And we have one extra leash, which we bought when we first got Loki as a puppy. (This extra leash has proven to be very useful as a temporary replacement for all the times that Jujube has chewed up her leash.)  Other than that, we don’t have any more collars or leashes.
  4. We’ve never made our own doggie biscuits or treats.
  5. We’ve never taken either of our dogs to the dog groomer.
  6. We haven’t bought a dog toy in over a year.
  7. We don’t spell out words, like W-A-L-K. Instead, the dogs have learned to understand the word “Sorry.”
  8. The dogs’ medical records are more organized and complete than ours.
  9. We have a one way doggie door.  (Actually, it’s just a regular door. Jujube figured out how to push it open to let herself back inside the house, and Loki followed suit.)
  10. The dogs are welcome to accompany us when we’re in the bathroom.

I've been making doggy beds out of all my comforters that are more than 10 years old... She tears them up. Now I'm all out of old comforters, so I gathered up all the batting she's tossed around the house and sewed it up into her last remaining fleece blanket. I'm thinking I'll have to buy a new comforter soon...

And I shower with my dog on hot summer days. I don't think she likes it, but it does keep her cool.

my shiba comes to the bathroom with me too. She also likes to sit in the bathroom when I'm showering as well...

I absolutely love reading your blog Vi. I came across it about a little over a month ago when I first considered getting a Shiba. I ended up finding a Shiba Inu breeder and my little Shiba came home last week. Your blog has been very helpful in understanding my little one!
