Sometimes I wonder whether or not Maggie is happy being an only child. It must be a bummer waiting all by herself for 6 hours for us to come home. But on the other hand if she had a brother or sister to play with at home then would play time at the park or doggie day care be just as fun? 
These are just some of the things that a crazy dog owner thinks about...

The cost of owning a Shiba

Brand new IKEA couch - $399

Resale value after less than a year - $50 (or less)

Living with a Shiba Inu - priceless.

Maggie's second Spring

We took a short hike around Bernal Hill today. The hills were lush and wild flowers were growing everywhere. Finally, spring is here after all those months of rain. Maggie did a lot of romping in the tall grass, chasing other dogs, bees and butterflies. Last year she was confined in the house because of giardia and couldn't get out much. This year we plan to take her out as much as possible. These sunny days are only going to last a few more weeks, then the fog is going to cover San Francisco.... not looking forward to it.

Can you find Maggie in this pic?

Maggie always finds tennis balls left behind by other dogs.

Spring cleaning

One of the things we absolutely need to do for spring cleaning is to get rid of our carpet. I don't know how much longer I can take the smell. It has a strong scent of Maggie and each strand of the carpet is accompanied by Maggie's hair. 

Advice to people planning to get a dog: buy cheap carpets or rugs!
