Shiba Inu looks like bread, so I tried making

!
I think of it whenever I see Shiba Inu, that it looks like bread.

Therefore I tried making "Shiba Bread."
Writer/illustrator residing in Tama. While specializing in light-hearted illustrations and articles, he is a serious editor-in-chief at a certain publisher among others, and after having lived his hectic lifestyle, he dives back into the real world, anew.

A new pet dog arrived at my home. It is this Shiba Inu.
!
His name is "Momo." He was already 9 months old, hence his size.
But what is this?
!
How cute. Labradors were the only option for me when I thought of cute dogs, but isn't this Shiba Inu cute, too?
!
That's Momo the Shiba Inu.
It was just my first impression, and I'm not sure if everyone can tell, but the light brown hue of this Shiba Inu
!
really looks like bread.
Like freshly-toasted bread.
!
This gradation from light-brown to beige looks nothing but freshly-toasted bread to me. Therefore, the only answer I ought to give like-minded souls is to try and make "Shiba Bread."
!
"Huh, what is this all of a sudden?"

In other words, my plot to create a Shiba Inu from bread, whose, upon toasting it, toast hue or whatever, will give birth to the perfect composition. Since I suppose you like either Shiba Inu or bread, I wish to show everyone the outcome.
!
Without further ado, I am going to craft a Shiba Inu from the lump that is this pre-cut loaf of bread (the so-called 6-sliced, or 8-sliced).
!
A suitable loaf of bread they're selling around there would have been nice, but since it is relatively hard to find a whole loaf, I had to buy one at the bakery's in the end.
!
Pullman Loaf. Look at his name, he seems like a sharp guy. It didn't really have to be such a serious piece of bread, though. Either way, let's just buy it for now.

So, as I give it a cut
!
It looks delicious, and want to it eat it straight away. But, I mustn't. I mustn't eat it.

As I'm thinking this, Momo
!
There was no hesitation in his actions.

You serious? Let's do something about it before it gets eaten.
!
Well then, I would like to start making a Shiba Inu right now, but before that.
I would like everyone to know about this.
!
In its default condition, the bread is still fluffy and soft because of its good yeast, so in order to sculpt it, I need to make somewhat harder. Let's toss it in the freezer
!
to harden it up! Having just been bought by me and suddenly this, forgive me, bread.
So,
!
A fair amount of time has passed and the dog is sound asleep for now as well,
!
but as it is stored cold,
!
It's perfectly as hard as I want it to be. Yet, even though it's frozen now,
!
Momo took a bite at it again. This dog's crazy. When I take a good look, I get the feeling he's already licked it. But I won't let it get to me, and go all out sculpting!
