Meet Maru (But Not THAT Maru)

happy-dog-maru-shiba-inu-6You were expecting someone else?

There IS another “Maru,” ALSO from Japan. This Maru happens to be a Shiba Inu, and like The Circle, he seems to enjoy life just a little bit. (We saw a little tease of him here.) Here’s his FB!

Puri-Ketsu

maru-the-most-popular-and-possibly-cutest-dog-in-the-world-24The always dependable RocketNews 24 stalker fan Andrew Y. shot us an email about a contest that looks a lot like something we would have invented. [If we’d, cough cough, thought of it. -Ed.]

Puri-Ketsu. Quoting RN24, “(It) is a combination of the Japanese words “puri-puri,” an expression which describes something juicy and plump, and “ketsu,” which is an informal way to say “buttocks.”

So what we here is a contest for, literally, juicy plump butts. OK.

It’s all to commemorate the release of a book by Maru The Shiba Inu.

(Two things. First, isn’t the name MARU already famous? And secondly, ya missed that story, Andy pal.)
