For every time we were asked if we had red fox at the end of our leash we'd be rich! My bigger problem is that I don't know how to respond to that comment.
Here's a list that I've come up with so far:
1. "Haha... yes he does."
2. "He is. I roped him up from the forest."
3. "Yes. He's a Shiba."
4. "Yup." *Smile*
5. Start walking faster and pretend you didn't hear the person so that I don't have to think of a response.
Sad to say but after 9 months of Shio, I still have not been able to think of a clever response.
