Fuzzbutt, Little One

Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

August 5th 2005

I like LOTS of attention. Are you listening? ARE YOU listening? Yes, you. Attention, now!

I can't stand getting my nails trimmed. Oh and I hate it when Daddy or Mummy leaves me in the exercise pen. I always howl my disapproval. It's simply because, for that instant (and ALL instants are important) they aren't paying me any attention.

Favorite Toy:
The squirrel that my maternal mummy once tried to eat. Either that or the rope toy. The funky frisbee that we only use outside is pretty good too. I can't make up my mind, I'm a Shiba Inu ya'know.

Favorite Food:
I like CHICKEN best. But seriously, did someone say FOOD? I want some, any, and now. Are you paying attention to *ME* and my needs?

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere as long as it's outdoors.

Best Tricks:
I know lots of little tricks!

Arrival Story:
I don't remember much about the first meeting, I was pretty small. You'll see the picture with my 4 other siblings. I was quite sleepy that day because I was only 2 days old. Daddy and Mummy *finally* made up their mind to take me to my new forever home about 5 weeks later. Geesh, I hope they aren't that slow with every choice they make in life...

I am also proudly known as Canadian Champion Koyote's Sikoya Ki. I came from Koyote Kennels,

#westwardho, and Winter's early arrival

Dearest Readers,

I'm tardy with an update, please forgive me. But the snow was pretty cold when we got to Alberta - I even said "HOLY SHIIIIIBA" a few times - and it's taken most of the year for my paws to thaw enough to type in this entry. Last entry I promised I'd tell you about our unexpected winter camping trip.

So this move thing Mummy and Daddy were going on about came to a temporary stop the day after my last post and that's when winter hit. The locals said it came about 2 weeks earlier than in prior years and it dropped about 8 inches of snow around our trailer. It got pretty cold inside as it's a summer trailer, and all I can say is that it's a good thing Sis' and I have fur coats.

No backyard to take a quick whizz in off-leash at all. Not even for Mummy and Daddy, even they had to stroll down the road to the bathroom building.

But we went for lots of walks, even if they were short ones. We saw plenty of deer and geese and other things we wanted to chase. There were a few other dogs in the campground, too. It seemed odd to us to have to be camping for 6 weeks in the snow but it was fun for us.

I'll tell you all about the final days of our camping trip and our new backyard and home next time around.


#westwardho, the Journey

Dearest readers,
When last I wrote we were waiting for Daddy to get off his butt for the camping trip he kept talking about. We've been camping for over a week now, but the journey was quite interesting in itself.

About a week after my last entry we FINALLY got the trip started. Sis and I each jumped into a different vehicle and we had our own super-comfy kennels with extra padding and a small water dish.

But that excitement was short-lived. The trip lasted SIX days. S-I-X, count'em, 6 days. Day one was pretty cool, I was with Daddy. On day two, I was with Mummy. Day three, back to Daddy, and I didn't really want to get in the kennel. I heard Mummy and Daddy talking and Oasis was doing the same thing. But they gently directed my head into the kennel and I got the hint, and I "kennel up"'d for them.

At least we stopped plenty of places along the way. We stopped in places like Sudbury, Ignace, Dryden, Kenora, Thunder Bay, Regina, Brooks, and a gazillion other places I can't remember - but every one of them smelled very different. Of course I peed at every one of them!

Daddy and Mummy spent a bit of time at the Terry Fox Memorial in Thunder Bay reading what was inscribed on the statue and it's base. Daddy was pretty moved by what he saw and took lots of pictures.

Despite the scare about beef in Alberta, when we got to Brooks (the ground zero of said scare) he ordered a burger anyways. Did he give any to me? Noooooooo. He muttered something about "puppies aren't allowed in the restaurant" whatever that means. Yeah, What-Ever. All I know is I got ripped off for beef sampling, a-gain.

But it's time for me to share the computer with Oasis. She's searching for safety collars that auto-magically light up at night ever since she learned how to use Google. I'll tell you about our unexpected winter camping adventures next time.

Dear Readers,
Daddy keeps saying stuff about a camping trip and long car ride but we haven't moved off our butts yet and he hasn't picked us up to get us going... I wish he'd move quicker somedays. But some guys he called "the painters" turned our house upside-down a couple weeks ago, then the carpets no longer had Shiba odor on them, and then we seem to keep the house oddly tidy and neat. Sometimes we go for an hourlong walk several times a day, but just beforehand Mummy and Daddy run around and hide our beds and dishes and toys and stuff. I figure that they are worried someone will steal them while we are out...

Since moving to Ontario I've been kept very busy with my hourly self-grooming routines or yukking up with Sis Oasis. We have really enjoyed chasing wildlife in our backyard. In this past year I counted about a dozen bits of wildlife we've bagged. Daddy seems upset every time we catch one, but then he has to catch us and it's GAME-ON!

He's been home a lot lately, grumbling something about trying to find work in Onterrible -he says he hates the weather here but wears shorts a lot- and so we must go back to Calgary. At least I'll get to see my buddies at Koyote Kennels again even if it is a farther drive away than the last time I lived there.

But as long as they unpack my leather couch, loveseat, big Ikea bed and my doggie beds the very *instant* we get there, I'll remain content just to hang out with them. Even if Daddy insists on stopping and taking our pictures near every silly roadside attraction between here and Timbuktoo, I mean here and there, I'll be happy to hang out with him and Mummy.

At least he's keeping an eye on us. He gets us out for walks more regularly, and they are decent length walks (decent for us, we gotta start someplace) to boot. I seem to drag a bit, but Oasis just keeps boogy-ing along at a quick pace. Maybe if he fed me a bit more every day I'd have more energy?

Sadly we won't be in close contact with Shiba Rescue GTA ( or Helping Homeless Pets ( as much as we were but I can usually sneak on email when he isn't looking. My typing speed has improved over the years as my paws can hunt and peck pretty good - remember I'm a hunting dog!

Daddy just tapped me on the shoulder- he says to watch his Twitter stream (@vincedeon hashtag #westwardho) for pictures and stuff as we travel. Farewell, Ontario, we will have fond memories of you and your yummy dog cookies!
