Madi: Friday "Christmas" Friend meet Howard

Good Christmas Afternoon to all my friends.
I hope each and everyone of you found exactly what you
wanted under your tree today. We all got up early here so the
our daughter and hubby could get on down to celebrate with her hubby's family.

So on to HOWARD aka Howie the Shiba Inu member of our family.

We started celebrating on 12/23 at my brother in law and sister in law's house.
Her children joined us there for a fine evening of fun, delicious food, and family.
My step-niece lives W.Va. We finally had a chance to meet her puppy, Howard.
What a cutie pie. He has so much personality it is hard to contain him. Everyone is
his friend and he has to smell every inch of you.
Look at his curly tail. Everyone had to rub his tail. It is a wonder it
wasn't straight when we left.

His coat is absolutely wonderful.
His mom is an English teacher. She told me he was named after
Howard, a strong willed character in Fountainhead.
Before she decided on the Shiba Inu she read alot about them.
They are strong willed and don't always strive to please their owners.
I guess he is alot like ther high school students...always testing their limits

His mom told me he rarely barks and look he has laser eyes just like Madi.

I received a digital picture frame from my daughter and son in law. I can see lots of
Diva pictures being down loaded in the future. There will be lessons on the care and use before they go home.
My son in law is a very talented wood turner. Every year we very excited to see what he made for everyone.
We'll post about those later with pictures. GORGEOUS!!! He is so good he could sale them but he says he won't give up his day job just yet.
Ok we're off to catch up on all the blogs.
It is raining buckets here in NC. Hubby, Madi and I are cozy inside.

Madi and Mom
