in my home, there’s a shiba monster named kiyomi. many people know she’s snoozy and snuggly. however, many don’t know that she’s playful at bed time, she steals my bed so that i’ll play with her, she demands to eat at 3am, and she tries to chew random household objects when she’s bored (no, kiyomi, the table is not delicious).
kiyomi loves to play with me, but her favorite way to play is to bite my hips and/or pin me under the couch. you can see her monstrous ways in this video.
it’s a taro shiba hipstamatic wednesday. today, a health warning!
Health Warning, from Shiba Surgeon General to all humans; for immediate release:
Overexposure to shiba mind control may damage human willpower, vision, concentration, long-term mental health, and other mental faculties. To prevent overexposure, it is best to always comply with shiba mind control as quickly as possible.
Note, in the rare case that you are exposed to an episode of shiba mind control lasting more than four hours, feed the shiba, then seek immediate medical attention.
sounds like a serious warning. humans, in the interest of their health, had better heed the shiba suregon general’s advice.
Only Dog No More 113/366
I’m not sure if Taro has fully understood that he’s no longer the only dog. He and Kiyomi still ignore each other most of the time and he remains to be protective over his high-value treats and crate. Adjustment to an additional sibling is difficult, I can only assume.
Being a only child of my family (my peers all being only child), I still don’t fully understand the adjustment to a new member in a family but can’t help feel guilty to Taro now that he doesn’t have as much of our attention.
Bubbles of Happiness 112/366
Boba tea is more like a snak than a beverage to me. The best boba tea I’ve ever had was from a small shop on my college campus in China. It used to be such a treat to sip on an iced buba tea during a summer evening class in college.
I thought life was so unfair at that time. Now I laugh at my presumptive sophistication.
