this is what my lucky humans see on our 3 mile morning walk, 6 days a week.

these three pics were taken at jaycee dog park in tempe, az. it’s the first stop for me and my human kai on our daily morning hour-long walks.

my 2nd birthday yesterday was awesome!


some things i did after my humans got home from work:

  • walked to jaycee park and played with sticks (and played fetch, too!)
  • checked out an epic sunset that was made just for me!
  • took a car ride to pet club in tempe and got awesome Zuke’s Hip Action treats, peanut butter flavor (they have glucosamine & chondroitin).
  • played with a ball that my humans put a Zuke’s Hip Action treat in.
  • got a polar bear skineez toy. (my humans chose this one because they think it would be the hardest to pull its hair out. i took its eyes off almost immediately.)


it really was a good day. good treats, good toy, good family, good fun. 


here’s a bonus video of me and my new skineez toy (warning, squeaky toy sounds inside):


thanks to all who sent their warm birthday wishes. i did indeed have a wonderful day and got just about everything a shiba could ask for. :)

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.



a few more thanksgiving pics of me, taro the shiba, hanging out on tempe town lake. 


a special bonus for taro shiba hipstamatic/retro wednesday.

i realize it’s not nice to share just my terrible pics on friday.


so, as a special bonus, here’s a pic i put as an entry into an @PEOPLEpets #CutePic competition. (no, i didn’t win) it’s me chewing on a stick, but it certainly looks like i’m trying to play the flute.


taken in late October while waiting for a table at the Morning Glory Cafe, near South Mountain in Phoenix. taken with kai’s iPod touch using the Hipstamatic app.
