Rest in Peace, Shassi, the Misanthropic Shiba

Shassi, August 27, 1993 - January 6, 2010 ... Sunojo's Aka Shasta C.G.C.

The Shiba world will never be the same. If you are owned by a Shiba Inu, but have never heard of The Misanthropic Shiba then shame on you. If it weren't for Shassi, the Misanthropic Shiba, we owners would have truly been lost as to TRULY understanding this breed. Sushi and I never had the honour to meet Shassi and her owner, Julie, but we corresponded a few times and they even joined our Meetup group. I will be giving Sushi a few extra hugs tonight, as I'm sure all of you will do, also, with your own Shibas. Shibas are special and unique. And, Shassi taught and reminded us all of that. The Misanthropic website is, in my opinion, THE most informative & important website to learn about the Shiba. Thank you for being you, Shassi. And, thank you for teaching Julie to teach the rest of us :) You will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
