Things I love about my shiba

I love her smell.

Dogs smell. Most dogs smell bad. Tinky-Winky smells good. Well, "good" is a matter of taste, I guess, but she doesn't have dog smell. What her smell reminds me of most is overdone toast or cookies. Not quite burned yet, but definitely overdone.

I love also that I know her smell. Humans suck at recognizing creatures by smell, but I know the smell of my dog. Yay me!

Truth be told, there isn't a whole lot about my shiba that I don't love, but the smell is definitely something I do love.

I love the smell of my dog too! And it's something my grandmother says over and over with disbelief: He doesn't SMELL like a dog!!

Tinky-Winky's babysitter loved that too. She used to be a cat person, but she decided that Tinky-Winky converted her to dogs. So she adopted... a basset. A drooly, foul-smelling basset who just looks at you blankly no matter what you say to her. So that was a bit of a shock for her. :)
