Here is my interview with Kobe (784519). Have fun reading it!
Can you tell me the story of how you got your name?
Well, before Mom and Dad adopted me, I was called Eaki, which I believe means 'baby' in Korean. When the girl decided to give me to Mom and Dad, they like Yoshi. Then Mom's best friend suggested Kobayashi after the hot dog eating champion. Dad said no way, but liked just Kobe, like in the beef! Sooo, technically, I was named after a hot dog eating champion and beef.
Where is your favorite place to go for walks?
I really like it when Mom takes me up to South Street. Dad used to work in a pizza place.....mmmmm.....but not anymore. Now, I like to go to what's known as the Schuylkill River Trail. At the end of the trail is a park, and that's where we meetup with Chad and Henry!
Have you ever captured any birds, squirrels, etc?
YESSS!!! I've caught a squirrel! Well....I helped catch a squirrel. Actually I only got the tail. But I did help corner it in a tree so that my shiba buddy, Kasey, could get it! It was really exciting! But made Mom and Chad and Henry's Mom not happy. So I spit out the tail. It was kinda furry anyway.
I'm an expert bug catcher though!!
How well do you do on car rides? What was the last vacation you took by car?
I'm great on car rides! I love to go. Mom and Dad even let me stick my head out of the window sometimes. This summer we went to Ocean City, Maryland. It was a 4 hour car ride! I slept a lot because we left early in the morning, but once we got there it was fun. I got to meet my new cousin, Lucy! She's a westie mix. She liked Sparky better, but that's okay. We also got to go to the beach and Mom and Dad made me go in the water. I was not a fan.
How well do you tolerate going out in the rain?
I tolerate it as long as I have my rain coat on.....and we don't have to go outside.
What kind of food does your diet consist of? Do you have any food allergies?
We get fed Verus fish formula because....well....I have a very sensitive stomach. So far we're three bags in, and I'm still....holding it together. Otherwise, I'm not allowed to eat anything else. One of Dad's friends said once, "People food makes Kobe make Puddles." Pretty much sums it up!
Where does your collar and/or harness look like?
I have TWO collars! One's black and the other one's black. Haha...one is on all of the time (except at night time) and has my tags on it, and the other one is a training collar, similar to a martingale but with a chain release instead. I had a harness,but it made me want to pull....like a sled dog!
Do you destroy your stuffed toys?
Every single last stinkin' one! Except my triceratops....I love her.
What are your favorite types of treats?
If I had my way, I would get peanuts, cheese, hot dogs and pizza crust all the time! But, mom says they make me have sad butt.
Do you ever wear any clothing?
Begrudgingly, yes. I have a christmas sweater, a black and red striped sweater, a shark hoodie, and various other things. Mom even has a pirate hat for me, but I hate it!
What is the most valuable thing you've ever chewed up?
Me? Chew something valuable? You must be joking! Only my brother ever chews anything that's not his....never me.
Is there anything else you'd like to share with the dogs on the shiba forum?
Oh! Where to begin! Mom would be a complete mess without you guys. She loves being able to hang out with everyone in the forum even though she's not a shiba herself and is only using the computer because I let her. We really love how everyone is dedicated to keeping shiba's safe and well represented. You guy are great!
