Did you watch the Shiba Inu Puppy Cam back in 2008?
It was a phenomenon in which over a million people watched a live webcam feed of little shiba inu puppies as they grew up from new borns until they were adopted out. The webcam was originally set up so that the owners could watch the pups while at work, but it quickly became an internet sensation that was featured on news programs like NBC nightly news and the Today Show.
If you missed the original sensation, or would like to experience it again, the original mom from the puppy cam has had another litter and they are online to watch at ShibaInuPuppyCam on Ustream.com.
Here are some pictures from the original puppy cam:
I know that I will be watching over the coming weeks to see these adorable little puppies grow up!
This current group of 5 pups (called team B) consists of two females and three males – two cream and three red. The Shiba Inu is an ancient breed of dog from Japan, and are the smallest of Japan’s native breeds. These dogs have an independent nature, but are loyal companions. They require early socialization and obedience training, and must be exercised and brushed on a regular basis.
