FINAL BLOG POST FOR CT 101

I HATE TO LEAVE BECAUSE I LEARNED SO MANY COOL THINGS I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW HAPPY AND EDUCATIONAL IT MADE ME !

The grade I feel like I earned this class would be a B! I feel as if I did not apply my self to these assignments like I should. I could have been more creative and I felt like I did not give it my all. Now, that I have learned so much and cook tricks, I feel as if I am more confident in my work and I am much better with time management.

I enjoyed making Animated Gifs !! I loved the one with me making a selfie portrait! That was my favorite project because I learned all the edits in Photoshop. I learned how to sort out different images and each one can do different things. It was a very difficult project for me but it was my first task. I loved every second of it !

I will definitely keep my website going because I love giving feedback, my experience, advice with a dog owners who own a Shiba Inu ! I will continue to post more challenges I faced with my Dog. Also, talk about times where I was worried when he started showing symptoms or threw up. I did not know what to do. I want to guide others in the right direction. !!!!

I enjoyed my classmates work, along with the guidance of my professor! I never really thought I had it in me to be so creative and create things on my own, but hey… I did it !

My Experience

My experience with my Shiba Inu has had its ups and downs. But I enjoyed every second of it ! There are Pro’s and Con’s when owning a Shiba Inu. This breed is like no other breed, they are very unique and they come with lots of challenges. They deserve a lot of love and attention. My story is to help other Shiba Owners relate and share their story. Also, to ask questions or just if they have some concern about their dog, they could know that they are not alone.I love him so much and I cannot imagine my life with out him. He completes my life. He is my best friend. He is family

How He looks When He Sheds His Coat

Advice : It is okay if your Shiba looks like this. He/She may loose so much hair that you think your dog is bald. But it is normal for them to look like this because they are just letting go of their old coat and growing in their new one.

Worse Thing Ever

They shed their coats moderately throughout the year and heavily twice a year. For three weeks, during both the fall and spring, Shiba Inus “blow” their undercoat and you’ll find an increase of fur on your clothes, furniture, and all around the house. With double the coat comes double the shedding.

His hair looks so bad all over the whole house ! I literally can never let him sleep in my bed or wear black around him !

I feel so bad when he sheds because he looks so skinny, he does not loose any weight but his hair is all gone and he looks sick !

Advice : Try to keep him outside during the day. Try giving him baths with oatmeal because it helps with the shedding. Get a comb to de- shed him outside so he can shed less. Also, another method would to be get him shaved down.

Howling!

*This is not my dog, this is exactly how my Shiba howls and this video is showing a comparison*

My Shiba Howls so loud ! If I mimic him howling, he does it right back to me and I laugh so hard.

I never understood why he howled but I try not do it back to him because it sounds like he is crying and i don’t know if he likes it ! He gets supper aggressive after this and wants to run really fast around the house and does not let me touch him after that !

Getting Groomed

He hates it !!!!

*In this video Is not my dog or my video, it is there to show a comparison of how my Shiba acts when getting groomed*

I swear this is my dog! The groomer complains all the time about him ! She has to always put a muzzle on him ! He hates water and soap and the dryer!

I never shower him because as much as I am his owner and I love him, he will still act like that with me .

I have tried showering him at home and he makes such a mess and all the crying and growling I get, is not worth it.

Advice : Try to make it a nice safe environment. Try to talk to him. Try to fill the water up in a bucket, so the water is not as loud so he does not get scared. Talk to your dog while he is getting showered.

Cuddling

AW !

I love cuddling with him because I enjoy it so much ! He is like the son I never had ! He does not remain in this position for long ! So i have to enjoy the minutes I could with him. I learned that he really is not a cuddle dog! He cannot sleep in one position and stay still. He sleeps so weird & he does not even sleep in his bed.

He is always in my bed !!!
