marustagram's Profile Picture
I was born on October 20, 2007 (Marutaro's birthday :aww:). I’m a Shiba-inu—a breed that is an official national monument of Japan. I’m a bit bigger than the standard Shiba, weighing in at 18 kilos rather than the usual 8-10 kilos.

Why is my name Maru?

I was named that because maru is “circle” in Japanese—and since circles have no corners, they represent smoothness, without interruption. It can also mean purity, happiness and also fat! My owners hoped I would grow up happy and with a cute, round face. I guess they got the last bit right! :heart:

What are my hobbies and dislikes?

My hobbies are walk on a beach with digging on ther, playing with a toy daikon. I hate the boom-boom of fireworks and rumble of thunder.

I have a question: A lot of the videos on your Facebook page show Maru howling in response to a woman making an announcement over the PA system. I'm just curious as to what this announcement is and why it keeps playing. Is it a special thing in Japan? And why does Maru howl whenever he hears it; is it because he interprets it as howling?
