Happy New Year and Welcome to MakaKoa.org!
Here, you’ll get a daily dose of me, Maka Koa, also known as Koa, Kolar, Wanker, Pookie, Stupid Dog, Puppy, and Dog. I live in San Francisco with The Girl and Bossman, who feed me (most of the time), bathe me (sometimes), and give me a place to sleep (all the time).
I was born in Nipomo, CA where they picked me up on a sunny afternoon in June of 2004. My pops is named Kingo and my mommy is Cami. I still keep in touch with my 3/4 brother Mochi and 1/2 sister Fuji who live in San Diego. I consider myself a city dog now. However, for the first three years of my life, I grew up as a suburban dog with the comforts of grass everywhere and enclosed dog parks. I now answer to a piercing whistle that the Bossman learned from the internet and I’m allowed off-leash sometimes.
When I’m not napping, I like to lounge on the couch when Bossman isn’t looking. I’ll show off all my toys when you come over and I don’t usually let strangers pet me. I have nasal allergies (probably to myself ) and will do tricks for baby carrots. I hate water but love to drink from the Christmas tree stand.
I’m not a fox. I’m a Shiba Inu. And yes, this is as big as I get. Most importantly, I’m a badass pup with a big head and a stubborn streak. I’ll come running to you on my own time and like the spot in front of my tail scratched.
The Girl likes to take photos of me on a regular basis and I humor her. I’d rather not be held or hugged but I will let the girl give me my daily “huggy hug” (as she calls it). It’s mostly because she’s the one who takes me out to the park twice a day.
I hope you enjoy this year of me. My good looks and wit will keep you coming back each day. But if that’s not enough, the girl takes some pretty good photos too.
Enjoy and feel free to comment as you wish.
