Shiba Inu! I've known a few and they're great if not complicated dogs; yours is especially cute! Name?
I'm afraid I haven't named her yet. I'm still trying to find a Japanese name that I like, but I don't want more than two syllables and it can't start with a K - other dog's name starts with a K.
So right now she's "Sammy". My friend likes Miko, but it doesn't grab me.
Her weird show name was easier to come up with than her everyday name.
Complicated is a nice way of putting it. Hardheaded, obstinate, stubborn... but oh so fuzzy and cute.
I know one named Molly that is more complicated than any woman I know! LOL
Warning-Miko is a Disney name. I didn't know that and despite my hardline policy one of the kids snuck a cat named Miko past me...
I knew a SI that came from Japan-her owner was Japanese also and I remember the clinic I worked at was spaying the dog at the time that the tsunami hit Japan and the client lost her uncles and aunts and cousins in the disaster... That dog had a Japanese name and for the life of me I can't remember it...

I have a few more pics. These are after we picked her up yesterday. My older dog is being a real asshole, but he needs to get over it. Shibas will often pick the wrong choice even when the right one gets them treats.
