Kabuso, the dog who served as the inspiration for the meme, is being honored in real life with the construction of a monument by a devoted NFT community, the legitimate proprietors of the original “Doge” meme. This statue will be unveiled in Sakura, Japan on November 2, which also happens to be Kabuso’s birthday.
The City of Sakura and devoted locals are working together on this project. The statue will have a permanent location at Sakura Furusato Square, where Kabosu and her owner like to take leisurely strolls.
Supporters of Kabosu, a Japanese Shiba Inu dog known for serving as the model for the Doge meme and Dogecoin, were able to raise enough money last year to have a statue built in her honor. They even have the lofty ambition of placing this statue on the moon in the future.
The neighborhood plans to put together interesting festivities to commemorate this accomplishment. Participants will have the chance to meet Sato (Kabosu) in person, and owners of particular NFTs will get exclusive benefits as a thank you.
PleasrDAO is a group of NFT lovers that supports communities like Own The Doge and makes investments in worthwhile NFTs. They see the term “DOGE” as standing for “Do Only Good Everyday” and actively promote charity initiatives all over the world.
Additionally, Own The Doge is presently working on a documentary that details Kabuso’s life and the rise of the well-known “Doge” meme.
In 2010, Atsuko Sato photographed her dog Kabosu for her blog, which is where the doge meme got its start. As soon as John Monarch, the user who shared the Atsuko’s blog image, gave the dog the nickname “doge” on Reddit, it gained popularity.
