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.
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!
