Twitter user Mesomeso1009 uploaded this curry creation, which isn't made with actually dog butt. Instead, this is rice shaped like a shiba's backside. The photo has been retweeted over seven thousand times and even made it on major news site, Livedoor.com.
One Twitter user, Fuyunomayuki, even tried making some:
This isn't the first shiba inu curry, however. A few years back, another site Japanese site called Fun! uploaded its own creation.
Not sure how I feel about that black bean, though. No, actually, I am. It's gross!
Some shiba inu owners note how the dog's backside is adorable. There's even a slang term in Japanese to describe the animal's cute hindside: or "puriketsu" (ぷりけつ).
Remember, it's okay to love your dog. Just don't love your dog.
