A crucial year in the shiba movement.

Look, I love Doge as much as the next person. She put shibas on the map. She should be respected.

But shibas are more than a meme and they certainly don't all TALK LIKE THIS.

It's a stereotype and it's got to stop.

It's a stereotype and it's got to stop.

This is why 2015 was a special year for shibas. A year that they proved they were more than a meme. The year they stood on the shoulder of a giant (Doge. The giant is Doge) and created an internet identity of their own. It was beautiful.

They finally got the chance to show everyone they don't all speak like Doge.

They told some very scary stories.

And proved they were patient AF.

One shiba let her human dress up as her.

Look, shibas have always been great. The world just finally caught on. So, congrats on a stellar year, shibas!
