I thought perhaps today the mood needed to be lightened with some puppy-love. I saw this video yesterday when it had just a couple of hundred hits. Look at it now! The owner has taught the Shiba Inu to bark at different volumes depending on what she says. Is there a Japanese Doggiefile fan out there who can translate for us? See below the video for some words on the breed. Enjoy!
The Shiba Inu is the smallest of the six original and distinct breeds of dog from Japan. A small, agile dog that copes very well with mountainous terrain, the Shiba Inu was originally bred for hunting. It is similar in appearance to the Akita, though much smaller in stature. It is one of the few ancient dog breeds still in existence in the world today.
