Shiba coat color genetics & more

   I was doing some Shiba Inu research tonight and found this great breeder blog with Punnett squares illustrating the genetics of color in Shibas, just like the images I used to study when I was 12 and worked for a collie breeder. And that led me to this excellent and informative illustrated site with a ton of genetic information for various colors, mutations, and breeds. And finally, I stumbled across this rescue site summarizing Shiba behavior (and as usual, stressing the challenges).
    But perhaps the best (and funniest) description of Shiba behavior is depicted in this print by britt c. h.! Here's hoping they do a reprint. I need one!
