all i see is a heart

and i know 

that i have crossed paths

with a sweet and amazing

canine artist.

 

 

“to fashion stars out of dog dung,

that is the great work.

to take a negative experience and,

by comparing it to something worse,

make it feel good, is a great skill. “

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.”
