The pups are now two weeks old. They look like little bears. All three of the pups look pretty dark. Our breeder says that they will all be red. I know that Shiba pups generally get lighter as they mature into adults,…but these guys seem so dark. It makes me wonder if some might actually turn out to be sesame colored. Shiba owners…what do you think? Is it normal for reds to be this dark as puppies? It really doesn’t make a difference to us what color they are. Anyway, here are the pups at two weeks…
I decided to go with the crate a friend of mine offered to give me. I will buy the divider, that should save me about $100 or so.
Training for a 5k. Will run it in November, as of now we are able to run 2 miles pretty easily. We are working our way up. I’m sure my routine of getting up early and running will come in handy in exercising our Shiba. Speaking of exercise….
Shiba owners, how much exercise does your Shiba need each day? We’ve read/heard that Shibas are very adaptable, but we haven’t heard a solid response from anyone about how much exercise Shibas typically need on a daily basis. We are prepared to go for daily runs if we need to!! haha
1 week closer to bringing our Shiba home. Each time we get new photos of the pups the fact that we are actually going to get a shiba becomes more and more real. It hasn’t completely set in yet, but its getting there.
First installment of the Shibapursuit comic strip coming soon.
