I have to admit, before we got Kiki (who is my first dog), I used to think it was strange that people let their dogs sleep with them in bed. I mean, they're kind of stinky, they shed, and most dogs are pretty slobbery - it really didn't sound all that appealing. However, within about a week of having Kiki, she completely broke us down and guess who's sleeping right in bed, taking up most of the space? If that isn't bad enough, this past weekend proved that I have definitely crossed the line into "ridiculous dog owner." A few days ago, some friends and I went to a Shiba Inu party in Novato, and for the occasion, I made Kiki a cape so that she could enter the best costume contest. She ended up taking second place, losing out to a dog dressed as Ariel from the Little Mermaid, and to be honest, the cape didn't hold up all that well, especially since it was super wet and rainy. It proved to be way too difficult to take photos of Kiki in her cape while holding onto her, so all of the cape photos are from a separate photo session at home. Here are some photos from the Shiba party:
My good friend Brandon Smith made these two photos below of her on his Hasselblad. Thanks for the great photos, Brandon!
