Buttercup is Tiger and Indy's only daughter. She is a remarkable girl with her mother's brains, her Daddy's looks, and a personality all her own: she is extremely sweet and good natured, and always eager to please (and yes, she is a shiba). She is also remarkably intelligent and will blatently manipulate our other (dumber) dogs to get the toy or the crate or the seat or the attention she wants. She is our first breed Champion, our first Agility Champion (the first Shiba ever to earn the CPE Agility Trial Champion (CATCH) title) and our #1 lap dog. Buttercup has had three litters of beautiful puppies: her first in March of 2001, her second in September of 2002, and her third in October of 2004. She is OFA "Excellent", CERF "Clear" and has OFA Patellas "Normal" (CHIC).
