Shiba Inu PuppyCam Launched Again

It seems like not long ago we were extolling the Shiba Inu PuppyCam for being the Happiest Thing In the World. It was, at the very least, the Happiest Thing On the Internet. When Jean-Marie Gustave recently opined that blogs might have stopped the rise of Adolf Hitler, it was the way the masses were held in thrall by these little "fur burritos" that gave him that hope. Then, sadly, we were told that the puppycam would be no more because the titular Shiba Inus were grown up and were off to new homes of their own.

But because the economy is in such a state of uncertainty and our lives have become so fragile, someone, somewhere determined that now was not the time for mankind to go without a Shiba Inu PuppyCam. And so, Lindsay Robertson from Videogum brings us these glad tidings, born to us this day in West Chester, Pennsylvania is a new Shiba Inu Puppycam!

Now we can only sit back in wait for the Great Shiba Inu Backlash of 2008 to begin, as the new pups are decreed to be wildly inferior to the originals by snobbish early adopters.
