After 8 years, unfortunately, I have made the decision to close the Shiba
Veteran Page. The reason is, that hardly ever I receive new entries "veterans"
for this list. On several occasions (e.g. Facebook, but other platforms too), I
have asked for new entries, resulting only every now and then in a new face on
this page. I hardly ever receive an updated picture of the veteran, even when
the dog is on this list, already for several years.
Another reason I have closed this page is that not always I get the information
when a dog has passed. This resulting in dogs that are ranked in this list, but
have passed, and sometimes even a long time ago.
Not always I am informed when someone, who has a dog on this list, changes of
When I have found a solution how to avoid that Shibas, that have passed, are
listed here, I will re-open this page.
Thank you all for your enthusiasm, and most kind words about this page. I
realize that some of you will be very disappointed, but to you I would like to
say: "...hope to meet you again, someday..."
