Ustream’s Puppycam wins Webby Award in NYC

In October of 2008, 6 Shiba Inu puppies went live on Ustream and 8 months later they’ve attracted over 18 million unique viewers for a total of over 800 viewing years which makes them “the most watched video in the history of the internet.”

Last week, the Puppycam also won a Webby Award. See the Puppycam video here: Puppycam video See the 5-word acceptance speech here: 5-word acceptance speech

Unfortunately, the Shiba family and pups could not make the trip to NYC. It would have been fun. Anyhow, here’s to congratulating Puppycam on another amazing accomplishment in internet history!

Undoubtedly, they are the most popular dogs (no longer pups) on the internet.

Best, John
