Lately, I’ve become addicted to puppy-cam. Someone somewhere had the brilliant idea of putting their litter of Shiba Inu puppies on a web camera, and at points there have been more than 20,000 viewers watching a litter of six rambunctious youngsters live their first few weeks of life. It’s better than having a real litter of puppies. You get to watch them alternate tumbling and wrestling exhuberantly with flopping down exhausted in a big pile of fuzzy puppy—without any of the mess or tiny, sharp teeth. I have a very handsome golden retriever, and I dare say Shiba Inu puppies are actually cuter than golden pups. Every night I check in; they grow up so fast. Come visit my virtual puppy litter.
