Earlier this month a live video stream of a Bald Eagle family and their three new baby chicks went viral, attracting over 40 million views. But baby eagle chicks aren’t the only little creatures that are booming in the live streaming department. A live video stream of a Shina Ibu puppy litter, just under 2 weeks old, is attracting viewers by the swarm. The Shiba Inu Puppy Cam has garnered over 27 million Ustream views since the puppies were born on April 14, 2011.
Live video of the puppies mother, Kiko, has been online since 2008. This is her third litter, but you can watch archived videos of Kiko and her puppies going all the way back to the first puppy cam on October 8, 2008.
Kiko’s latest litter, broadcasting live on the Shibu Inu Puppy Cam now, is made up of six pups—three girls and three boys. The puppies are named Chozen, Chame, Chikara, Chisaki, Chiyoko and Charlotte and, according to the description on the live stream, all are already spoken for with happy families waiting to take them home. This is Kiko’s final litter, so get your puppy cam fix while you can!
These little guys are so cute, I just want to eat them up. I literally started writing this post an hour ago, but haven’t been able to take my eyes off the little guys, who are sleeping right now after having lunch with Kiko, stretching, jittering and shaking their little feet. I’m addicted! There have been a consistent number of at least 13,250 viewers watching since I logged on.
Not many people have the opportunity of experiencing the birth and first weeks and months of puppies, eagles and other animals and I think it is really cool that live streams online have made this possible. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who will be peeking in to see how Kiko’s puppies are doing at every opportunity.
What do you think of the Shibu Inu Puppy Cam? How often will you be tuning in?
