I'm in LOVE

I've had Hiro for 3 days and I'm in L<3VE.  =)

I will recap what happened the past 3 days.
Hiro's flight was scheduled for 9:03 PM on Friday. His flight actually came about 15 min early. On the way to the airport, my friend goes, "You don't seem very excited." I said "I don't think it's hit me yet. Oh boy did it hit me. When I saw the cargo guy carrying my Hiro, I almost wanted to cry. My eyes did get watery. He was shivering like crazy in his crate. I signed his papers and then took him home. He slept on my lap.

When we got home, he was so scared. He didn't know what was going on. He was probably thinking "Where is my mommy?" Where are my brothers and sisters?"  Hiro hid on the bottom shelf of my bookcase and just sat there all night. Here is the pic.
Eventually he fell asleep in the corner. But at about 1:30 am, I took him outside to go potty and then I put him in his crate to sleep. He slept all night until 7:30 am to potty again outside.

I took him to the vet on Saturday for his first checkup and to get his vaccination. The vet recommended him that he gets his 8 week vaccination again because his first set was done at 6 weeks which may have been too early. The vet technicians said they found cedar in his stool, but that was okay. They also found rounds (type of worms). The vet gave me some meds to give to him for the next 3 days. Hiro was a hit at the vet office. Everyone wanted to know what breed he as and also to pet him.  The vet loved his stinky puppy breathe which I thought was kind odd.  O_o  haha. She was giving him a physical exam and goes "I feel two testicles! Yes I do!" hahaha...she definitely loves what she does. I will close with a few videos of Hiro. Enjoy!
