Booker the Shiba Inu

An update on our puppy

It’s so cold that we’ve been staying home with the dogs instead of going out. Today it hit 25° and my fingers were aching by the time we got back home after walking the dogs. So I figured it would be a good time to give you guys an update on baby Haru. Haru is now a little over 4 months old and growing like a weed. She’s got all her shots (expect her rabies, we will be getting that…

Happy birthday Booker

This post is a day late because we wanted to celebrate Booker’s first birthday! She was born September 15, 2016. We brought her home in mid November and we haven’t looked back since. I made her a cake with this recipe and it came out pretty well. I should have trimmed more of the cake to make it a perfect square but I figured Booker wouldn’t care and I’ll get a better cake pan just for her birthday cakes. I also…

Langevelderslag strand, The Netherlands

When summer comes to mind, what else follows? Beautifully tall cups of iced tea, sitting outside with ice cream while enjoying a cool breeze in the shade, and of course, the beach. So when Sander’s sister asked if we wanted to join her and her friend for a walk on the beach with all of our dogs, we couldn’t say no. The unique part of summer here, is that the sun sets around 10pm. So we arranged to meet up…

Owning a Shiba Inu, updates on Booker

Booker is nearly seven months old now and is still quite a handful. We knew that choosing a Shiba Inu for a dog would be a challenge but it was one we were prepared for. I’ve grown up around dogs and don’t consider my house a home without one. Sander’s family brought Snowy into their lives around 10 years ago and Lucky two years after that. Both of them are Friese Stabij mixes and are pretty common in the Netherlands. I’m…

Booker’s first snow

I’m not one for just dumping photos on a post but I think that this shoot carries the phrase, “A picture is worth 1000 words”. This was our babe’s first snow and she clearly didn’t want the snow day to end. For more of Booker and her snow adventure, you can check out my latest video. And if you haven’t offically met Books, here she is!…

Let it snow

According to everyone, this has been the warmest winter in years so imagine my surprise to wake up and see the landscape frosted over. I had been hoping to wake up to a white Christmas but it was still too warm. Now we have had light frost on the trees and ground before but this was probably as close to a winter wonderland as it was going to get. The air was so crisp and refreshing but the ground was…

Booker our first Shiba Inu

Here it is! The post you have been waiting for, we got a puppy! She’s a Shiba Inu named Booker (named after the main character in Bioshock Infinite). We had to drive a long way to get her but it was so worth it! She’s adorable and such a sweet puppy. Unfortunately we found she has giardia and she’s on medication for it. She finished her latest set of medicine and seems to be improving but will have loose stool on…
