Open Thread for Personal Stuff: August 2014 Suspended Kitty Edition



An open thread for personal stuff, continuing from here.

As usual for these threads: no trolls, no MRAs, no arguments.

About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon,, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

  1. They’re so gorgeous.

    I had the pleasure of loving a Black and Tan Shiba inu the other night. The red ones look like handsome fox/malamute hybrids. The Black and Tans are tiny though and look like micro shepherds. I was in love with that doggie and it loved me. It’s people were telling me how unusual this sort of meeting was. Clearly we’re meant to be together forever.

  2. Normally Shibas aren’t particularly friendly to strangers, so clearly it’s fate.

    Just googled them and ooh, what pretty dogs!

    Love this pic.

  4. Hey everyone, I just posted a new Open Thread for September, so head on over there!

  5. Oops, sorry, just noticed David’s note.

  6. THAT’S WHAT THE LADY SAID THAT NOT ALL SHIBAS ARE LIKE THAT! This Shiba was like that though. Proves we’re meant to be. Little darling.

    Oh, right; off to the new thread, After I procure pop tarts and quiche fixings.

  7. Kitten, our Italian greyound has those shoes! When it’s really cold in the winter he gets cramps in his feet if he walks barefoot, so then he wears those little red shoes, just like the ones the Shiba has on the pic you posted. They have fleece lining, so they’re pretty snug.
