Just like Hina the Shiba Inu, Kiko likes to stand out in a group photo. Only she has developed her own special quirk and is way more consistent—when Kiko’s pack is posing in front of the camera, the puppy “rebels” by turning her back to the photographer. However, she doesn’t ignore them completely. Kiko also snaps back her head, showing her face in an “Oh my God, how can she even bend like that” kind of way. Call it misbehaving if you want, but Kiko’s friends seem to be fine with her acting out. At least, most of the time!

“The three ginger dogs are Finnish spitz,” Ashleigh Macpherson introduced her dogs to Bored Panda. “We have Mika, who is 3 years old. The other ginger dog is Tofu. She is Mika’s daughter, and 1 and a half years old. The last ginger is Kiko, who is 9 months old, and the one who often turns her head backwards. She is also Mika’s daughter. They are crazy little dogs who are sassy and very cat-like. They are very talkative and have so much to say. They are small dogs with huge personalities.”

The white dog is Kaya. This lady is a White Swiss shepherd. She is 6 years old and the “motherly figure” of the adorable group.

“Kiko was a Covid puppy and was raised during the lockdown,” Macpherson explained. “She was a singleton puppy, who had no littermates. So her company that she grew up with was the cats. Maybe that’s why she’s such a weird character.”

The dogs have been trained to sit and pose for the camera but since Kiko is still a young puppy, she will sometimes break her stay to do other things instead, which includes “ruining” the pack’s photos! She learned that on her own.

“If she is facing the opposite direction, she will automatically want to turn her head and look at me. It’s her own quirk, and has recently been turned into a trick,” Macpherson explained.

These dogs really are a family, and not just because of their blood! They go together on walks and hikes, usually twice a day. “Since Finnish spitz are high-energy dogs, they need that exercise, or they’ll be running mad at home.”

They also do training daily, just to keep their basic obedience in check.

“When I go to work, Kiko comes with me while the other dogs stay at home,” Macpherson said. “They all usually sleep until I’m back from work, that’s when we go for our 2nd walk/hike.”
