Hanging out at home

Tokyo takes a break at home

I haven't been traveling much this year; I've only been on two road trips to Arizona so far. But don't worry, I've been busy adding things to my calendar and making some plans for the summer.  In July, I'll be attending the Shiba Club of Southern California's annual celebration picnic (aka Shibapalooza.)  The picnic is open to both members and non-members.  There will be fun and games and pet communicator Dr. Monica Diedrich will be there too.  I'm gonna make sure I talk to her so she can tell my people to give me more cheese.  I've also made plans to meet up with some of my shiba friends at the picnic. Summer 2011 will be lots of fun!

Tokyo Turns Two

Tokyo: 2yrs / 17lbs. Click for her first birthday link

Today begins the terrible twos for me and I couldn't be more excited. My people will surely need to navigate my terrible twos with patience and humor. To celebrate my birthday, my people hooked me up with some cool new presents including three new Ugly Doll friends and Skelanimal ChungKee the Panda.  I also got a Nina Ottosson interactive toy called the dog Tornado which is going to get filled with treats for me to eat. I'm also pretty sure that later today my people will be setting up a huge bouncy in the park for me to jump on and the clowns and petting zoo will be arriving soon.  This birthday is seriously PAWSOME!  Be sure to stay tuned to check out my travels and adventures for another exciting year. And don't forget you can also check out what I've been up to on my Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/tokyoshiba and there are even more photos on my Tumblr: http://tokyoshiba.tumblr.com/.

Because I'm such a lucky shiba girl, I've also made a couple donations to charities for my birthday. My friend Snickers is throwing a special charity canine cocktail party in New York City for Emmie the Superdog's birthday on June 17, 2011 to benefit Hike for Our Heroes.  You might remember that I got to meet Emmie and her gang last year at the Veteran's Day parade in San Diego, California. 

Here are some other great places to donate:
