I met a really quiet and seemingly nice dog yesterday.
She didn't seem to be too interested in me, but I really wanted to get to know her. I wonder what kind of dog she was....
Kaiju was born on November 1st last year. He spent the first 10 weeks of his life with his mom Sugar, his littermates, and the breeder Charleen in the suburban house on the Cape. It has been about 10 months since he left the place to live with us.
Last weekend, we had the pleasure of visiting Charleen with our little dude. We had been talking about this for a while so it was exciting when it was finally scheduled and confirmed!
The reunion scene was so very heart-warming. When Kaiju first saw Charleen walk towards him, he was curious but cautious. He slowly approached her and extended his neck as far as he could to sniff her toe. At the same time, he heard her voice. Then, he knew. His dangling tail sprang up to the cute curl and started wagging rapidly. After that, it was all jumping, licking, play bows, panting, and everything else you would expect from an over-joyed puppy.
We the humans were of course very happy to see her, too. She has been there for us to talk to, on the phone and via email, throughout this whole unfortunate ordeal with Kaiju. We were happy to have a chance to show her the sweet and handsome Shiba that he had become (even with the bent knee...).
