Welcome to Shiba-Nunu

There is no real English word such as "Nunu", though privately, Nunu is a silly term of endearment my husband coined for our shiba inu, Mya, and all her shiba antics.

She is, then, our very own Shiba Nunu!

Mya's Feathered Visitor

There are some days when life throws something so unexpected.  Today, this surprise came by flying to our living room window.  What a  fearless (and just as clueless) pigeon this was.  He had no idea of the intense prey drive this shiba creature staring from the other side of the window has.  He had no idea that a few months back, we had to pry off a poor maya bird out of Mya's mouth to help it escape from this shiba huntress.  She had captured the maya bird when it mistakenly flew into our living room.

Today, this relatively big and healthy-looking pigeon's visit was a good few seconds of excitement. We were just astounded by its curiosity when it stayed around and even tried to stick its head in.  Mya was just as curious herself.  No barking was involved.  Just that alert curious stance that usually precedes chasing prey.  (usually in the form of leaves flying in the wind or other much smaller birds)

"Hello there! Can you teach me how to dance 'Doing Croo-croo Pigeon'?"

"Yes...closer...that's it...closer until I can grab your neck..."
