because i am a dog.


An adorable Shiba Inu named Ken-kun in Hokkaido, Japan remarkably runs his own sweet potato stand. 

The watchful dog politely tends to whatever the customer needs, however, he is not able to accept payment. That situation is solved with a slot in which to put the money.

Customers need to have the exact amount (or be willing to leave the rest), as a sign on the front of the stand reads:

“Because I am a dog, I can’t give you change.”

“the dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.”

  1. Beth, I URGE you to read the book LILY & THE OCTOPUS by Steven Rowley….. All is revealed – and don‘t tell David. I‘m going to send him a mail – this is a book that MUST be read! The final quote says it all, really….. (and it gives a new sense to one of my favourite sayings: I would have loved to be my dog……!!!)
