Hi, I’m JP and my awesome little Shiba Inu’s name is Juro. I’m 30, and he’s 2. I’m giving blogging another go-round after 6-7 (maybe a little more) years. I wanted to just share my experiences of being a pet parent to a Shiba Inu and the process of being a first time Home Buyer in DC. I don’t know how often I’ll get around to posting. But I’ll try to update when I can.
I think that anyone that owns a Shiba Inu can understand the MANY stories that can be told about having one. They’re awesome and beautiful dogs. Yes, every time, I get told that he looks like a fox. If you’re considering getting one, just get used to it. Also, like some other breeds, Shibas are VERY stubborn! But SWEET and full of so much personality. It’s one of the reasons why I love the dog, and pretty much… he’s me… just a 6’2″ guy in a small dog. LOL He’s fearless, yet skittish/shy around people. But once he’s familiar with his settings, he is the head of the household LOL.
A little info about my house: I purchased my first home in DC in November 2012. It is a complete renovation. It’s a Row House. I spent so much time, like many others, watching shows like Property Virgins, Holmes on Homes, Property Brothers (my new favorite show) just to get a feel for what to expect during this process.
I always got advice or read online that Shiba Inus and Home Renovation projects are not for FIRST TIMERS. Yet, I’m doing both! All while working full time and working towards a doctorate degree.
Clearly, I’m insane right? Welp! Let’s see how this goes! 🙂
