It took me some while to introduce her to you properly ! So here’s Miya, my little three months old Shiba Inu dog ! You may have already seen her on social networks, but I wanted to tell you all about her on the blog in proper manner.
We had been thinking for a long time with Oli about adopting a dog. We took our time to make a decision, because while it’s obvious that a dog is a joy in a family, it is also a lot of responsibilities. I digged the internet for information about this breed of dog that is the shiba, asked advice (thank you to the lovely Natasha Birds for answering all my questions for future “anxious mom”!), And finally we took the plunge…
The first days were very strange, being with that cutie in our living room and we had some time to adjust. You should know that the shiba is a sensitive and not very obedient dog, and that the beginnings are always easy. Thankfully, Miya has a (quite) good character, and adaptation goes on slowly but surely. It’s also very funny to see she learns something new everyday ! And she is also a little clown who makes us laugh a lot too!
In short, we are very happy with our choice although we were a bit stressed in the beginning. I hope that we will live with Miya beautiful things for the next years. For now we enjoy the moment because it’s crazy how she changes fast, physically and psychologically!
But why “Miya” anyway? Gosh, choosing the name of a dog is as tought as choosing the name of a baby ! We stopped on Miya because it is a Japanese name that recalls its origins, and a allusion to Miyazaki whom I love the work. And spelled differently, there are plenty of very charismatic Mia , like Mia Farrow, Mia Wallace or singer M.I.A for instance. And considering the singing she does sometimes I think she rather identifies to the last option!
Well, time to leave you with its first blogger dog photo session (so much for the cliché) in an splendid autumn light. You may admit she fits beautifully into the background with its coppery fur i
See you soon for next adventures !
