The iconic image of the doge meme: a shiba inu. A majestic, derpy, beautiful, funny, silly dog: that's the shiba inu.
Across the internet there is no shortage of folks who know that one sure fire path to the hearts of social media users everywhere is a spunky shiba inu pup, but not everyone, quite frankly, nails it.
So, when someone comes along who hits a slam dunk on this peculiar and precious breed of dog, we can't help but get super excited. Such is the case with Zelda Boom. The dog is perfect. The doge mentality is bar none. They make us smile and they make us laugh, and you're going to love them.
The seven-year old shiba inu is living their best life and their time is spent amusing their Instagram followers, currently just over 41k of them.
Such facial expressions.
According to Mental Floss:
The breed’s Japanese name is a bit of a mystery. The Shiba Inu name probably translates to “brushwood dog.” It's believed that the name is from their tendency to run through brush or thick grass while hunting; others think it is because the dog and plant share the same fiery red color. Another theory is that Shiba actually means “small” instead of “brushwood.”
Zelda's Instagram account is the ideal example of everything we love about the doge meme. They've made everything fun, silly, and laid back, all while highlighting a very clearly very sweet pup.
Zelda Boom never breaks character, even in our interview. Honestly? We love that.
For example, when I asked how the family came to be, they responded:
met mi Mim when i felled to earth fröm ooter Spáce. am actunally a alium from Planet Mars Bar
According to National Geographic, Shiba Inus are the dog breed that is the most genetically similar to wolves! This suggesys that the iconic doge breed is actually among the oldest domesticated dog breeds ever.
Shiba Inus are considered great hunting dogs.
I asked what Zelda's favorite toy was and was told it's their samurai sword. Though by browsing their Instagram it looks like Zelda has a lot of very fun toys to play with!
Some people burned out on doge speak long ago and some people were never on board that meme hype train. But if anyone could make you a believer, it is definitely Zelda.
I asked Zelda if there was anything else they wanted us and the fans to know and Zelda would really like a lifetime pass to Chungee Chez.
And honestly, how do you say no to a dog that winks and makes butt jokes?
Don't forget to do a heckin' share with your friends.
