Internet star puppies moving on
Six Shiba Inu puppies belonging to a San Francisco couple are leaving the Web after winning the hearts of millions of Internet surfers.
About 4 million people are believed to have watched the pups, the New York Post reported. John Ham, president of Ustream, the streaming service used by the Shiba Inus' owners, said one Texas hospital used the video to cheer up depressed patients.
For those who need their fix of Shiba Inu pups, a new stream started Friday, Ham said. He believes the new puppies are in Japan.
