Elon Musk's latest canine-themed tweet didn't pump Dogecoin as much as SHIB

Though the price of Dogecoin (DOGE) surged over the weekend to surpass $0.06 again, this time another token based on a cuddly canine benefited from the hype around Elon Musk’s social media posts.

In a Saturday night tweet, the Tesla (NASDAQ:) CEO said he would be getting a Shiba Inu dog for his household. The dog — whose breed is native to Japan — was at the center of the popular meme on which Dogecoin was based in 2013. The meme features the dog looking into the camera with a seemingly confused expression as floating text represents its inner monologue.
