    This Adorable Shiba Dog "Mans" A Sweet Potato Stand In Japan

    Humans need not apply.

    Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s an adorable dog who’s also a shopkeeper.

    That’s right. Apparently, this Shiba Inu “manages” a sweet potato stand in Japan, as evidenced by this tweet.

    The 3-year-old pooch named Ken-kun is always front and center when someone approaches "his" stand.

    Okay, okay so this sweet potato “store” is totally self-service…but still.

    So, customers reportedly open the white box and choose a sweet potato of their choice, then place the money into a small hole.

    There’s a wonderful little sign by the stand that reads: “Because I’m a dog, I can’t give you change.” Hey, it’s all in the small print.

    As you can see, it’s all based on the honor system.

    So, to recap: The cost of a roasted sweet potato? 100 yen (about $1). Meeting a dog who’s a shopkeeper.

    We love an entrepreneurial good boy!
