The kindergarten teacher adopted her in 2008, atsuo satou,Y it was named after the kabosu (citrus) fruit, as Satou thought it had the exact same shape as the fruit.

Kabosu is not the only dog ​​to star in the Doge meme, which stems from the fact that Shibu Inu is almost identical, but she is definitely the most popular. Satou herself shared her first photo in 2010, which began to inspire image changes with a text overlay in Comic Sans font from a Tumblr blog called “Shiba Confessions”, which would lead to “Doge” because of the animal’s funny facial expressions. . Its popularity is such that it even has its own cryptocurrency, the “Dogecoin”.

Things are going well for Kabosu’s recovery, and although a rather positive update was shared on Instagram, the truth is that she is still recovering. «This morning is the fifth day since Kabosu fell ill. He has finished his chicken meal. Drink a lot of water. She no longer needs diapers because she can go to the bathroom by herself. I’m surprised how quickly it went. Today I took her for a five minute walk in the park. He seemed happy in the sun and fresh air. Thank you all for your prayers», wrote the publication.
