Hiro's New Friend

A couple weeks ago, my friend brought over her shiba puppy, Goma. When Goma first came over, I brought Hiro outside to meet her. Hiro was not happy. He lunged towards her a few times. I suggested that we go for a walk. Goma was excited to meet Hiro and kept on following him. After a few minutes, we brought them inside the house. They played really well together! Here's a video of them playing.

Au Revoir Hiro

This Sunday I am leaving for Paris. Therefore I will be leaving Hiro here. It will only be a week. Hopefully he won't notice that I'm gone. I'm going to miss him so much! I remember a few months ago I had to leave him for 3 days. I teared up before I said goodbye.

Hiro will be in good hands. My parents are watching him for me. Good thing he still gets to stay in his comfy home.

New Toy

This past weekend, I stopped by my cousin's house to drop off a crate. She is getting a puppy on Friday. A Portuguese Water Dog. She said that her coworker got her some puppy toys but didn't want her kids to mistake them as their own toys because they're stuffed. She said she's only going to buy rubber toys for the dog. Below is a picture of one of the toys. Let me tell you...Hiro LOVES this toy! I recommend everyone get one for their dog. It squeaks AND has a rattle in the tail. Hiro can play with this thing for at least 15 minutes. I'll have to post a video of him playing with it.

Off Leash

For the past few weeks now, I've been letting Hiro run around an open field behind my townhouse. He loves being able to run freely. I know Shibas should never be off leash, but so far I haven't had any issues. I always make sure that I bring plenty of treats with me when it's time to go back home.

When spring time comes and the groundhogs are out, I don't think I'll be able to let him roam free. There was one time awhile back when Hiro first saw a groundhog. He didn't chase after it. He slowly approached it and ran away after the groundhog made a "yelping" noise.

I'll have to take a video of Hiro enjoying his freedom. Are you able to let your Shibas off leash outside of the dog park?

New Tricks

I recently taught Hiro how to "speak". I thought it was hard to teach him, but actually it was really easy! He's a fast learner.

New Friends

This past Sunday I took Hiro to the Cabin John dog park so he can play with his fellow Shibas. I've never seen so many Shiba Inus at a meetup before. It was awesome!! Here's a video of Hiro being chased by Phelan (Shiba) and Katie (Welsh Terrier). Hiro met Katie for the first time a couple weeks ago at Cabin John.
