As we mentioned before, we met Jonathan Fleming in Brooklyn two weekends ago and had a small photo-fest with Shio and the Shibal Inus. Jonathan posted up the photos from our meeting on his website recently, and I can't help but stare at one picture of Shio sitting and looking up at the camera.
I just adore the little glimmer in his eyes and the slight pink in his ears. Then there are his cute little whiskers that curl downwards to match his curly tail.
But most importantly, I love this picture because my favorite place to give Shio his Shiba kisses on his face usually happens when he gives me this look. I usually crouch and grab hug him around the neck, immobilizing his head, so I can give him a quick smackeroo right in between his eyes. The favorite spot is right here:
He doesn't like it but that's okay. It's my second that I get to love me some Shio.

Where do you love to kiss your Shiba?
