I can’t think of a good reason why I’d ever drive to LA and back in the same day. Ok, I can think of ONE: To see a giant crowd of Shibas.
Shibapalooza is an annual event hosted by the Shiba Club of Southern California. How could we not go!?
There was a picnic lunch, games, a raffle, and various other fun Shiba-related activities to take part in. I just stuck to chasing the little furballs around with my camera:
So many Shibas!!!!
We ran into some Twibas as well (#Twiba on twitter), looking handsome in their Twiba bandanas:
Finally got to meet Tokyo!
Suki’s half-brother Zuko was there too! Always nice to reunite with family. We kept lots of treats handy so our Shibas could have SOME kind of interest in the event:
Why is Taro the only shiba I’ve ever met that doesn’t mind being carried?
Isn’t he the sweetest?
Suki had the easy part when it was all over. Sleeping in the comfort of her back seat mounted soft kennel while her humans took turns driving. Must be nice, Suki…must be nice.
The first person to tell me in the comments how many pictures in this post contain Suki gets a free print of their choice from www.jonathanflemingphotography.com! Think you know how many times she appears in the image spreads above? Let me know in the comments! (one guess per person only please)
UPDATE: Congratulations Taro! You were the first to guess correctly. There are 15 instances of Suki in this post. Good job, little buddy!
