Meet Shiba Inu Marvel, our cute, adorable, new puppy pal who is about ten weeks old! He came over with his brother Crush to play last Friday. It’s good for puppies to have play dates to get to know other dogs, and I was up for the fun. Being still a bit of a puppy myself, we are a good match.
Bailie doesn’t like puppies much. She went outside to check out Marvel first and had no interest in doing anything with the little cutie. The first chance she got, she headed up the stairs and back into the house.
Marvel brought his big Shiba Inu brother Crush along to the play date. Crush is ten and we think he has a secret “crush” on Madison. We see him at trials a lot and he always manages to get his crate right next to Madison’s.
Madison was the first one to really be interested in Marvel. Unfortunately, she was not a very nice host. She chased him until he tripped over himself, and she barked at him. He was hiding behind things trying to get away from her. Of course, she didn’t mean any harm, but she wanted to be the big boss lady I guess.
Maybe because I’m so young myself, I was very gentle and accommodating with Marvel. It felt right to really take the little fellow under my wing to let him know not to be scared of Madison.
Once I let him know I was there for him, Madison backed off and the three of us began our endless romping around the yard. We played for almost two hours and we all crashed after our friends left.
Marvel really likes me a lot. He wasn’t afraid to jump all over me.
His brother, Crush, had no interest in our fun and retreated to the deck to overlook our nonsense and fun. He should have gone in the house with Bailie now that I think about it.
Marvel doesn’t have steps at home but he wasn’t afraid to try the steps up to our deck. I think it is dangerous for the little guy, so I would run up after him and bring him back down with me.
Being a puppy, he gets out of line sometimes, even with me. To get him back on track, I would give him a gentle little spanking with my giant paws.
We all got back together for another game of wild chase. For a little fellow, he is super fast and his furs are slick too! He is not a guy you can easily hold onto.
Madison came and went with our games. Marvel and I had plenty of fun without her too. Racing around is always fun no matter how many are playing.
I decided to introduce my little Shiba Inu buddy to my pup-a-brewski toy. It is always a favorite! Of course, I didn’t let him actually have it, but he thought it was a nice toy from what he could tell.
We played some more chase together, but honestly, we were all running out of battery power. It was a lot of racing and chasing, but so much fun! Doesn’t Marvel have a cute smile? He is a pretty happy boy!
Our moms then said it was time to end our play date because we all needed a break. I was sad to see my new little friend Marvel leave, but I know we will see him a lot. I gave him one last Olivia hug and sent him on his way. Boy was it a fun time! Thanks for coming over to play, Marvel!
