His Royal Diva-ness

Took Shio to Central Park for some off-leash running time this morning. Given the amount of pent up energy he's had in the last few days, I figured that he would run it all off at the park. Or so I thought. We arrived at the park and walked up to the Great Hill.

He looked to his right.

He looked to his left.

Back to the right for another looky-loo.

And stood around some more.

Then went to his favorite protest position when I tried to get him to walk around.

Driving in the fact that he refuses to budge by being dead weight.

It's true. Our Shiba is a diva. A royal diva pain the the... well, you know.

Shio's Top 10 of 2010

Happy Holidays everyone! It's THAT time of the year... the time to gorge ourselves on booze, food and presents galore. It's also time for the "best of" countdowns!

Counting down our favorite moments on this blog from 2010:

10. The size of Shio's ego vs. reality

9. Bath time!

8. Any video of Shibas frolicking in knee deep snow is a winner. This one is our personal favorite.

7. Remember when Shio resisted walking here? And here. And here. The list could go on and on...

6. ...Oh wait - the list does go on! More of Shio's leash walking protests here, here and here. Last one here. Phew! That was a lot.

5. He loves us! Proof that Shio really really loves us!

4. The day that Shio became a real city slicker with his first subway ride.

3. Crimped fur-do.

2. Who'z in da house? Jersey Shore in da house. *paw pump*

1. A Sephora experience unlike any other you've witnessed before.

We Are The Champions...

Shio had a great week! First, his Lakers and favorite player Kobe Bryant won another championship. Shio was very happy that his efforts in cheering the team on had paid off.

Then, after a night of celebration, we took him to Central Park. This time, because it was just us, we took the subway.

The weather in NYC today could not have been better; sunny and bright, but not too hot -- just the way Lord Shio likes it.

Shio, of course, explored the park and ran around until he exhausted himself.

That's all folks!
