Where are my greeters?

The best thing about having a dog is that there is always someone to greet you when you come home from work. I mean, your husband might greet you with a hug and a kiss the first week you're married. After that you're just happy if he says hi within the first fifteen minutes after you've arrived home. And your children might excitedly greet you at the door until they hit adolescence, at which point you become the bane of their existence. But your dogs are always, always, always eager, excited, and greet you when you come home from work.

Unless your dogs are two shibas named Loki and Jujube.

Gee, Loki, can't be bothered to get off the cozy couch to greet me? Nope. Can't be bothered to even lift your head? Nope.

And you, Jujube! You can't be bothered to get off from the cozy queen-sized bed? Nope.

Gee thanks for nothing guys...

I came home tonight wondering what happened to them. Were they inadvertently locked outside in the backyard? Nope. Did they escape and run away? Nope. Were they trapped behind a closed door somewhere? Nope.

They just didn't bother to greet me tonight.

My Shiba mix *always* greets me. When I came home from 3 days in the hospital for an operation, she greeted me for 1/2 hour! (Picture me exhausted, 'cause you can't sleep in the hospital, and on pain meds, waiting for her to finish.)

I guess that's the "mix" part of her, and I have no clue as to what it it (SPCA rescue.) Maybe lab, doberman, or GSD. But she's the best dog in the world, of course.

hehehe my shiba does this sometimes! But it's like he's playing a game...I know he's on the bed and I walk in and say "there's my shiba" and his ears airplane and he gets all silly happy.

I think you're lucky! I am trying to teach my Shiba pup not to jump and go crazy when she greets us! At least you don't have to train them!
