Just when you thought life was cruel and not worth living, a new round of hope and happiness has begun livestreaming via Ustream. Yep, a new litter of Shiba Inu puppies were born on Jan. 16, 2010, and mama Kita’s five new offspring are just as cute as the six last year who won the Internet’s heart, racked up nearly 18 million views and found new homes after their antics and naptimes were delivered online.
In 2009, the Puppy Cam won the Webby People’s Voice Award for Best Viral and raised over $11,000 for the Shiba Inu Rescue Resources of America. When I checked in on the stream this afternoon, the channel was approaching 18 million views and over five thousand viewers were tuned in. No big surprise, though. It was feeding time, and thus extra adorable.
