introducing our new taro shiba tuesday feature…
TARO GOES POP!
while my humans and i seek new taro the shiba “sponsors” for our tuesday taro shiba advertisements, i’ve decided to recreate pop culture references and internet memes with a taro-shiba twist.
our first taro goes pop! feature will be up later today!
we don’t share a lot of photos of my pack on the blog; usually we just let yours truly be the star of the show.
well, today, i felt like sharing the spotlight. maybe it’s because i was so tired and snuggly last night, maybe it’s for no reason at all, but i did it anyway. enjoy the pics of me and my pack.
if you’re not on twitter, you may have missed this photo yesterday. i’m putting it up here in order to make sure all my internet friends have a chance to enjoy it.
you can find the original tweet here.
i’ll have a new post (and some photos) up this afternoon.
for this week’s taro goes pop! series, my humans and i started by looking through wikipedia’s list of internet phenomena. why start there? i’m a tech-savvy shiba, after all, and i wanted to replicate some more internet memes.
note: many of these memes listed in wikipedia are not work-safe or safe for anyone. so, while the wikipedia entry is itself safe for work, be careful about clicking on the links of the individuals phenomena listed within the wikipedia entry. the internet can be a disgusting, disturbing place sometimes.
one of the memes we came across is a classic meme for those who have seen it before… the O RLY, YA RLY and NO WAI!!! owls. [want to know more? see the wikipedia entry here: ORLY?] so, in this taro goes pop! installment, my humans and i took some of my old photos, cropped them, affixed text to them and placed them in a collage. the result? replicated ORLY owls, taro shiba-style.
i hope you enjoy our taro shiba-version of the O RLY owls, which is the next step of my master plan to overtake the entire internet.

for this taro shiba hipstamatic/retro wednesday, i’m posting a pic of my hip, hopeful pose.
this photo is of me looking up and out over tempe town lake on thanksgiving afternoon. this is one of my human kai’s all-time favorite photos. if i ever make a CD, this would be my album cover.
taro the shiba’s thursdays with *trick continues!
my housemate/playmate *trick was eating turkey soup the other night. despite my best Oliver "please sir, i want some more" begging routine (seriously, it’s a really good routine), i was unable to get any soup.
if i didn’t like *trick so much, i would chew up all his cool argyle socks as revenge!
it’s the newest installment of taro goes pop!
haters gonna hate is a meme that always makes my humans laugh, so i thought i’d get in on the fun.
you may know haters gonna hate from this animated gif (which, according to knowyourmeme.com, was originally on yayhooray.com):
or, you may know one of the many instances of haters gonna hate since then, including classic pics of this cat and of Leonardo DiCaprio:
well, world, here’s my own taro shiba haters gonna hate pic.
it’s a pic of me as a puppy, the day after i was adopted by kai and tra. i was playing with a ball in the backyard. my strut with that ball demonstrated the full measure of my confidence. if that strut could speak, it would have said, despite any criticism my humans have of my behavior or what disciplinary techniques they try to use, i shrug it all off with a simple, “haters gonna hate!”

just sharing it here for all of you who don’t see it via my twitter account.
another taro shiba hipstamatic/retro wednesday!
it’s a pic of me in late october on tempe town lake. taken on my morning walk, the sun had just come up from behind tempe’s “A” mountain.
