Posted by Communications, Marketing and Creative Services on August 25, 2021 in Community Highlights

Shiba Inu pups, Kuma and Charlie, and tabby cat Tony all live with Terri Mann, development officer with the Office of Advancement.

Names: Top to bottom, Kuma (Bear in Japanese), Charlie (born in a litter with 3 sisters all named after Charlie's angels) and Tony (cat).

Nicknames: Too many to list, we have so many terms of endearment for them!

Species/breeds: The dogs are Shiba Inus (means little brushwood dog in Japanese) and Tony the cat is a tabby. Charlie is related to both dogs that often sit in the bay window on Coburg Road.

Ages: 2, 7 and 12

Fave food: Cheese, bacon, chicken, tuna, steak—the dogs are raw fed.

Special tricks: Kuma is an amazing jumper!

Best quality:  All three are quiet, cuddly and clean.
