So, you want a Shiba.
They are the cutest things you’ve ever seen.
They are the perfect sized dog for you.
You hear they don’t smell and are quite clean.
They aren’t nuisance barkers!?
They aren’t needy clingy pests!?
They only shed twice a year??
Wow, Shibas are the BEST!
So now you are sure you want a Shiba!
Meaning you want to give up your home?
You’re ready to be bullied,
Into giving him everything that you own?
You are excited to have a mini-wolf,
Rather than your plain old compliant mutt.
You want a dog with an independent spirit,
Not one that kisses your butt!
So you want a Shiba…
Who laughs at your commands…
Never comes to you when called,
And barks in response to reprimands.
Who treats your home as his race track,
Running the Shiba 500 twice a day.
Who eats your carpet and ruins your shoes,
Ignoring every “NO” you say.
So you are sure you want a Shiba,
A partner in crime, not a submissive pet.
Who often will outsmart you…
Outrun you? THAT’S a bet!
Who’s not your ordinary dog…
Actually not a dog at all.
But once you get that Shiba…
Oh how in love you will fall!
