Shassi really screwed with my head. Up to then, I was used to collie and Lab-type dogs who simply lived to obey commands and fawn over any available human. So not Shassi. We felt privileged if she deigned to acknowledge us when we came home. As for obedience – hah. That was something for the other dogs to have fun with; not Shassi. She got along with our dogs and cats, but animals outside the family circle were not so honoured.
Tierce is the heir apparent. He was born on March 30th, 2007. His registered name is Anautuk’s Game of Tierce.
Tierce is from Sunojo parents, so he is a little bit linked to Shassi. However, he is so different, it’s amazing. He is very sociable with people and other dogs. He is definitely a Shiba, though, and thinks he is all that and a bag of kibble. Tierce enjoys playing with his Kong and going for walks to the seawall. He also has a number of canine friends he plays with when the opportunity affords itself.
