My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Saturday - Clouds, Puppies and Pussy cats

I have nowhere to go and no one to go with.
I have nothing to do.
I am not complaining. I like it !

I was out on the lanai, admiring the clouds.
I know, sounds lame but there is a storm somewhere and this place is SO Flat !! So there are these  amazing huge fat clouds going overhead all the time. Especially when there is a storm/hurricane out in the ocean ..

So the skies are an amazing blue and the huge fat clouds are puffy and white.
The forest is very green  .. just in case someone wonders.
Now you know what it looks like in Florida.

I was out on the lanai, admiring the greens, blues and whites of nature when I saw a young woman with a tiny dog go out into the lawns.. I watched because the dog was so small ... then I fell in love.
Has anyone ever seen a 3 month old Shiba Inu ? No ? well, I will just say this ...
I WANT ONE.
Like ... today.
That puppy was smaller than any of my cats. I have a feeling it will be smaller than the cats when it grows up ! Definitely smaller than Honey ... the Godzilla of pussycats.

So that is my day so far. Never let it be said that I don't live a fun and glamorous life.

Shiba Inu are gorgeous looking dogs! The Puppies are even better looking.
However, like their bigger Japanese relative the Akita Inu, they need an instruction book - they are nowhere near as cute as they look!

The rehoming sites here are full of Shibas and Akitas where people fall for their looks without understanding their character.

I love cloud watching. Big skies and interesting clouds are just the best.

Two people I know from walking walk their Shibas and you are right they are lovely and elegant looking little dogs. I wouldn't mind one either if only I could be sure Miss Twiggley wouldn't mind.

Yes, I think cats are going to be all I can handle for now. It would not be fair to anyone to bring in a puppy at this time. But the day will come .. I am determined :)

heti, a long time ago we knew someone who had an Akita. It was their guard dog. Scary .. beautiful but scary.
