So sweet

One of the best things that I love about Juju is that she accompanies me around the house when I'm suffering from insomnia in the middle of the night.  The neighborhood is quiet.  The house is quiet.  My husband's asleep in bed.  Loki is asleep in the crate. 

And Jujube gets up out of bed to be my companion.  If I go get something to eat or drink, she's with me in the kitchen.  If I go to my laptop, she's resting in the nearest corner.  If I go read a book, she's right there with me once again.

I suppose that many dogs display this sort of clingy behavior, but shibas tend to be more independent.  Loki certainly doesn't bother to follow us around like a shadow.  Normally, both Yun and I like their independent nature.  But then, there are times like these, when I've haven't been able to fall asleep for over an hour, and Jujube's close companionship is very much appreciated.

All of my female Shibas have been very adoring like Jujube. Isn't it nice that you have a shadow? :)

Soba is just like his mom. He follows us around alot even if I just get up to use the restroom. I joke with my husband that I have a bodyguard. He has been more clingy the closer that I am to my due date. It is like he knows and want to be around.

That's so lovely. My girl, Hana, was like that. She followed me everywhere. Merry Christmas to you both. I'm glad I'm in sunny California :)

That's great to know that Mika isn't the only shiba that does it. I call him my second shadow sometimes (he actually comes to the name.. haha) when I'm doing chores around the house.. he literally follows me around the house and stays in the same room as me and just watches.
