This dog car seat deal promised me my Shiba Inu’s freedom – but that was a lie

With countless Black Friday deals and discounts now available at almost every retailer under the sun, this can be a great time to pick up something handy.

A car seat for your dog, for example, can really improve your quality of life and make trips a lot less stressful… unless you have a Japanese Shiba Inu, of course.

I’ve had my Shiba Inu, Lily, for a little over a year now, and during that time I’ve discovered one thing: Shibes are not like other dogs.

In fact, although it is one of the most ancient dog breeds around I’m convinced they look more like a fox than a dog at this point. And there’s a reason people don’t let foxes into their homes.

Shiba Inus are stubborn, hyperactive, stupidly intelligent, and will spellbound you from day one. They will hide under the sofas at the slightest noise, tear the plaster from your walls so as not to recover your deposit and will have the very pleasant habit of swallowing their poo without supervision, because of course, why not?

The problem is… you want to stay mad at them, but you just can’t. It’s physically impossible, and they know it. They are just too cute, cuddly, and downright hilarious for you to instantly forgive all of their grievances as your heart shatters into a thousand pieces when they come snuggle up against you at night.

So what if you try to put a Shiba Inu in a car seat? Well, Shibes can listen to commands, but only when they or they want to. If it is not their decision, you will undoubtedly be entitled to the infamous Shiba inu scream and be as lucky to catch them when they soar into the setting sun as a greased piglet.

Imagine my surprise, then, when I ran into that crunch ZEEXIPDR car seat offer, which clearly shows a Shiba Inu sitting happily as you drive to your destination.

Although the photo looks a bit complicated on closer inspection, I can tell you now that there is only one place a Shiba can sit in the car – in the front, in someone’s lap and not in a car seat. Here is the offer below if you have a regular dog.

It is easy to recognize another Japanese owner of Shiba Inu from a distance. Of course, they’ll tell you that they love their dog, bear, cat, fox-like creature who now rules their entire lives with all their heart (and they do).

But their disheveled appearance and bloodshot eyes show that this innocent-looking Shiba who wants to be a pet, but not like this savage, is leading them in tatters. Please have a thought for them this Black Friday (and every other day of the year too.)
