Though Jason and I love dogs, we are not ready to take on the responsibility of owning one yet. When we are, however, I think a Shiba Inu will be near the top of the list. I've been seeing these dogs everywhere recently, and at first I thought they were miniature Huskies or Akitas, but I did some research and it turns out they are a separate breed (though related) which originated in Japan. I think they are so beautiful, and they average only 20 pounds or so (17 for a female), so they are well-suited to living in modestly-sized spaces.
Do you have a pet and if so, what kind? If you don't have a pet, are there any kinds that you would like to have?
