Where My Shop Name Came From

After being asked a few times in the last couple days "where do your get the name from?" I thought I would share.

The name was inspired by the two who make me smile every morning, make me laugh everyday and make me love them more and more with every breath.  These two are my dogs, Dante and Kaiya.  They are pure bred Shiba Inus.

Kaiya is 5.5 years old and she is the biggest sweetheart in the entire world.  She loves people and chasing mice.

Dante is 6 years old and is one of the funniest dogs I have ever met.  He is a huge suck, but at the same time wants to be by himself.  He loves his toys and does not destroy them as others do, but lovingly plays and chews on them.

They are such a huge part of my life that I thought I would include them here with me, so that even when they are not with me, they are still around.

If you would like to know more about the shiba inu please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiba_Inu 

I hope you enjoyed just a tidbit of my inspiration as I'm sure I will mention them again and again.
