CH Sunshine’s Southern Gentleman


GCH Rhapsody Silver River Beignet

2/5/10 – 6/6/18

Chi was a great start into my show dog adventure – I will always be thankful for her. I will miss her dearly.

While Chi isn’t a Shiba Inu she is my first ‘official’ dog – first purebred, and first show dog. She taught me a lot at 17 years old – how to be patient, humility & that dogs aren’t robots, no matter how well you train them they’ll still do what they want!
We had several successes including Winners Bitch at a regional specialty for a 3 point major & winning BOS. Chi loves to show but is now retired – although she does get jealous when she isn’t going to a dog show or being shown. She always up for an adventure & loves going on hikes and our nightly 2.5 mile walks.

Our Regional Specialty 3 point major win under judge Ms. Carolyn Alexander
