My name is James. My dog’s name is Fonzie. I named him Fonzie because I wanted him to be cool. He is a Shiba Inu, which in Japanese means “little brushwood dog.” Fonzie does not believe that he is little. He is a neurotic, disobedient, insanely stubborn, handsome and utterly loyal dog. This is our (little) story.

If you own a Shiba Inu this is a must read book. WOW!!WOW. Well written and you will not be able to put it down. A BIG THANKS to the author for sharing his story. I am going to read again.
A Great Read!!!!
This book reminds me so much of my own Shiba. It was delightful to read and didn't want it to end! Anyone who own a Shiba can relate to this book! :))) I learned more about the complexity of my dear Suzuka!
Your Heart Will Melt
This quick read isn't just about how to own a Shiba, but also a heartwarming story of a dog owner finding companionship and love through his furry friend Fonzie. It is a thoroughly honest and comical tale between the author's personal neurosis and that of his Shiba. The both of them are definitely a special pair and their relationship evolves over the course of the author's years of owning his emotionally complex Shiba, while juxtaposing that with his own personal growth. If you are looking for something to get you out of your funk, read this!!!
