Do some much older shibas still do the "Shiba 500"?

    Maybe not as often, but occasional? Just curious :)

    What would you constitute as "older"? More than a year? 5 years? 10 years?

    Sagan is a little older than 2 and he'll occasionally have bursts of energy (Shiba 500).

    Kimba is 11, and he will do mini Shiba 500's - our living room floor is laminate- so he limits his energy bursts to running up and down the strip of carpet I put down for him along one side of the living room- he will run and twirl for a couple of minutes and do the play bow and play growl.

    Bowdu is 9+ years old now, and he still does them. He's currently got some issues with his back legs which I'm in the process of working out, so his 500s are definitely not as frequent nor as intense. Still gets the urge, and will take the space to go for it... Makes me happy to see him run, but he does need to be careful.

    Here is an excellent thread about aging Shibas and their activities/health issues:

    Remember to search the forum for existing threads before starting a new one. :)
    (And for all age Shibas, there are multiple threads on the Shiba 500.)
