A woman has shared how she builds her elderly Shiba Inu an igloo to chill out in every winter because her dog loves the snow so much. Toshimi Miura, from Aomori, Japan, has had Kuu since the dog was just a puppy. ‘I have had Kuu since she was three months old,’ recalled Toshimi, ‘and I have loved her ever since.’

The pair have an adorable tradition that sees 14-year-old Kuu get her very own igloo each year when the snow comes.

The white pooch loves to hang out in her little frozen houses, with Toshimi’s friends saying Kuu looks like a polar bear.

‘Kuu loves playing various games in the snow,’ said Toshimi.

‘I make an igloo for her every year and people say that she looks like a polar bear when she is sat inside of it.’

A clip shows cute little Kuu sitting calmly on a blanket in the snow, wearing a jacket to keep her warm.

Use a teapot to rinse dogs off in the bathtub without getting water and soap in their eyes.

The curved walls of the igloo stand taller than her and it has what appears to be candles nestled along the top – chic.

‘I have also dressed her up as a panda and taken pictures of her inside the igloo,’ Toshimi said, ‘which was adorable.’

A Wagging Tail Does Not Always Equal a Happy Dog. Don’t approach a strange dog just because it’s wagging it’s tail. Tail wagging isn’t always the universal sign of happiness – it can also indicate fear or insecurity. Be sure to teach your children about the basics of dog bite prevention.
