Don't Mess With My Turf

During the day when there's no one to watch Hiro, he's in his pen. Hiro knows to go in when it's time for bed. He knows when I'm heading out so he'll go inside his pen. This past weekend, I took Hiro to New Jersey. I had to break down his pen. Boy! Was Hiro not happy about it. He kept pouting at me and nibbling my feet. He didn't put too much pressure but I can tell he was upset! I thought it was kinda funny at the same time. Ahhh..the Shiba scream. Funny when I was setting the pen up, he also did the same exact thing. Has your Shiba done anything similar?

Hiro Meets Pika

A friend of my recently got a Shikoku puppy. His name is Pika. His owner's last name is Chu so his full name will be Pika Chu. HA! For those of you who don't know what a Shikoku is, they're related to the Shiba Inu. They will weigh about 50 lbs. This is my first time meeting a Shikoku. Pika is 12 weeks old. He is about 2/3 the size of Hiro already! Lemme tell you, this dog is very vocal! At first, he kept growling and barking at Hiro. I guess this breed can be a little territorial. We went on a short walk together and then we had them play in the backyard after they got acquainted. We eventually realized that Pika wasn't aggressive towards Hiro, he's just super vocal!

I took a couple videos of them playing together.

Hiro's Birthday Party

Last Monday was Hiro's 1st birthday. He had a party at Unleashed by Petco. 3 of his friends came too! Here's a video of him playing with Abbey.

Here's a picture of Hiro's Birthday cake. The best part was that it was free!! Thanks Unleashed!!!

Birthday Party

Hiro will be 1 year old on October 17th. I've planned a Pet Party for him this coming Sunday at Unleashed (by Petco). The best part of it is that it's free!! So I ordered a Puppy Cake for him. The cost wasn't too bad. 9.99. It feeds 2-4 dogs. So far 3 other dogs have RSVP'd. I will post videos and pics! =)

Fish Skin

I frequently shop at Bark in the Kentlands. I remember they used to sell Dried Fish skin. They've been sold out for awhile. Yesterday I went to Bark and they actually had them! I bought two "sticks" of them. When I got home I realized they charged me for 3. I was a little peeved. I call them and they said that I can go back and they well refund me. Here is a video of Hiro munching on his fish skin. =D

Bad Dog!!

Couple days ago my dad called me and told me that Hiro chewed through his harness! This is the second harness (EzyDog) that I've gotten him. The first one he outgrew and I thought he'll just the second one for at least awhile. When I'm not at home I usually keep the harness on him because my dad doesn't know how to put the harness on him. Maybe I'll have to show my dad next time. Harnesses are expensive! His EzyDog harness was $20. I have a coupon for Unleashed by Petco. I think I'll go there after work today and see what they have. =)

Poor Baby Bunny!

Last night while walking Hiro, we encountered a cute baby bunny! It was in a flower bed. At first I thought it was dead because it wasn't moving. Hiro went up and started sniffing it. It was very slow! I was surprised that it didn't even move when Hiro's nose was right up against it's body. The bunny took one hop and Hiro grabbed it with his mouth and shook. I heard the bunny squeak and Hiro dropped it. I thought the bunny was okay because it started hopping away. But after talking to neighbors later on that evening, they said that they saw a dead baby bunny. I saw the evidence. I felt so bad!!!!! =( My neighbors told me that there's plenty more where it came from, but I was very unhappy.

Hiro's Wobbler

Hiro haven't used his wobbler in awhile so I decided to put some treats in it for him. =)

Wednesday, September 7, 2011


A co-worker of mine got this for Hiro last December when he was just a mere pup. He was too young at the time so I put it away. I recently took it out and put some treats inside. Boy, this is a hard treat dispenser. Do you own this for your Shiba? If so, are they able to get the treats out?

First Raw Bone Marrow

This past weekend I picked up a pack of Primal's Raw Bone Marrow since I had a $3 coupon. I wondered how dogs are able to chew through such thick bone. Hiro only ate the marrow part. He loved it! Here's a couple videos of him enjoying his bone!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


While I was at Nags Head, I noticed a petstore near by. I went in and noticed that they had a lot of dog all natural cookies/biscuits for sale. I picked some up hoping Hiro would enjoy here. He seems to like em! Here's the proof! Sorry if it's a lil blurry.

Hiro at the Dunes

This week we took Hiro with us to Nags Head, NC. He loves it! Here is a video of him digging in the sand dunes.

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Kuranda Dog Bed

After Hiro ate the stuffing to his bed, I decided to get a Kuranda Dog Bed. It got really great reviews and some owners from The Shiba Inu Forum have gotten one for their Shibas. Hopefully this will be the last bed I get him. Here's a picture of the bed.

Friday, July 29, 2011

Close Call!!

Last night when I came home, I noticed that Hiro chewed a hole in his bed and pulled out some of the stuffing. I wasn't sure if he ate any because the stuffing was everywhere! Today when he pooped, sure enough, there it was. I had to pull it out cause it was just hanging from his butt-hole. ><" Thank God he seems fine!!

Have you guys had any close calls?

I am going to look into a Kuranda Dog Bed. I hear it's a good investment.

Himalayan Dog Chew

Hiro loves the Himalayan Dog Chew. It's an all natural dog chew made from yak's milk. It can definitely keep your dog occupied for hours. See?  *nom* *nom* *nom*

Friday, July 22, 2011

So Particular

Is your Shiba particular about certain things? I know mine is! hehehe.....

Whenever I give Hiro greenies, I have to break it in half before he can start chomping on it. Mind you these are the small greenies. (up to 15 lbs). If I give it to him whole, he will take it and start whining and lay it on the ground and whine some more.  geez louize!!!  =P

Friday, July 15, 2011


The past couple days Hiro hasn't been finishing his breakfast. When I come home from work I would see some kibble left in his bowl. I hear that during the summer time their appetite could change cause it's so hot. But the past couple days have been really nice. I've been adding other flavor to his dry food for variety. hmm...I wonder what it could be.

Hiro's New Toy

After hearing good reviews about the Go Dog Toys by Sherpa, I decided to pick one up today. Hiro tends to chew through toys that have stuffing. After he chews a a hole in it, I have to throw it away. Hiro loves his new Sherpa toy!! So far it is very durable. Here's a video of him playing with it!  =)

MmMm~~ Bully Stick

Hiro loves the knotted bully sticks. Best Bully Sticks had a 10% off sale so I decided to get some for Hiro. It took awhile for them to get the knotted bully sticks in. But it finally came!! woohoo! I usually get them from Bark but theirs is $7.99 for one and Best Bully Sticks sells them for $4.60. I ordered 5 for Hiro. Hopefully they last him awhile.  =)  Here is a video of him munching away.

Hiro PEED on his Mommy!

This past Sunday I took Hiro to the Shiba Inu meetup at Cabin John Dog Park. Right after Hiro went and said Hi to his fellow Shibas, I felt something on my leg. At first I thought "Who's dog is peeing on my leg?!?!" I looked down and to my dismay it was Hiro. I was shocked!! hahaha.... it was funny but he has never done that before. I wonder what he was thinking. And yes, I have a pic to proove it. Thanks to Henley's mommy who caught it in action. =P

Hiro Loves Hand Me Downs

My co-worker gave me a bag of toys that her greyhound doesn't play anymore. She gave me a Hide-a-Squirrel dog toy. It is the cutest thing!! Here's a couple videos of Hiro playing with it!

Hiro's new friend

Yesterday I took Hiro to the dog park since the weather was so nice. When we got to the dog park, there was only 1 dog there and the owner was just about to leave. Hiro and him started to play in the parking lot and then I asked them if they were about to leave. They said cause no one was there. But since I came, they decided to stay. The dog kept wiping his butt on the floor. He may have worms?
Here's a video of them playing.

8 month

Hiro is 8 month today. I am so happy I have him as a pet. Not any other dog, just him. He is such a good boy. Very patient. He goes into his pen by himself after eating his breakfast, when he knows I gotta go to work and at night he goes in when it's time for bed. I don't even need to tell him. He's not mischevious at all. Doesn't really get into anything. I love it how he likes to be to be in the same room as me. If I go to the garage, he will wait at the door. If I brush my teeth, he'll come sit next to me. hehehe.... yes, he's a mamma's boy. =)

Bleeding Gums

For the past few days I noticed that Hiro has been licking/smacking his lips a lot. I wasn't sure what was wrong with him. Yesterday I put my finger in his mouth and when I took it out, I noticed some blood. I looked around his mouth and noticed that in his area, the gumline was bleeding. Hiro will be 8 months tomorrow and I thought all his adult teeth have come in. Should I be worried? I called the vet yesterday and they said that he's not a year yet. They suggested me to bring him in, but again I'm sure the vet just want to make a few bucks. I told them that I'll monitor him and bring him in if it gets worse. As of this morning, I noticed that Hiro hasn't been licking his lips that much.

When do all the adult teeth come in for Shibas?

Friday, June 10, 2011

Another Play Date

This past Wednesday, Kiba came over to play with Hiro. As you can tell, they can't get enough of each other! =)

New ID Tag

This past weekend, I went to NYC so my cousin watched Hiro for me. I was going to put Hiro's collar on him but it didn't fit! I've used it since he was a puppy. Looks like I'll have to upgrade his collar. The only time I put Hiro's collar on him is when someone else is watching him, in case he runs off. When I take Hiro for walks, I don't put on his collar.

Before my NYC trip, I took off the ID tag and I hooked it to his harness with a split ring. I guess it fell off some time this weekend because when I came home yesterday, it was gone. =( I ordered him a Collar Tag from Boomerang Pet Tags after good reviews. Now I just need to get him a new collar. =)

Nom Nom Nom

I got Hiro his first beef trachea. He LOVES IT!!!! Here's a video of him enjoying it!

Feeling Hot! Hot! Hot!

It's been in the 90's the past few days and I noticed Hiro is more lethargic. Doesn't eat his food all at once and it slow on walks. I guess it doesn't help that my AC is broken, but hopefully it will be fixed today! I wanted to keep Hiro in the kitchen last night since it's cooler but after 5 minutes, he started screaming. So I let him upstairs. Doesn't he know it's for his own good? =P During the day I keep him in the kitchen with a fan pointing at him.

Are your Shibas like this during the hot weather?

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Shirlington Dog Park

This past Sunday I took Hiro to his 2nd Shiba Inu meetup. There were 6 other Shibas there. Hiro met Kiba again and they immediately went at it! Here's a video!

Rain Coat

A couple weekends ago, I picked up a rain coat for Hiro from Petco. It was only $9.99, so I thought..what the hey....
It looked like it was about to thunderstorm so i thought I'll try the raincoat on Hiro. wow, he took it really well. no fighting what so ever.
he did really well with it on. i was so proud! =)
if anyone's looking for a raincoat for their shiba, i recommend the one from Petco in size M.

Here's a pic of Hiro with his rain coat on. =)

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Pearly Whites

Lots of people have been commenting on how white Hiro's teeth are. I do brush his teeth about once a week. Sometimes I forgot, but he does get enough dog chews to help get rid of tarter. I give Hiro bully sticks, Himalayan dog chews, and also feeding raw helps. I highly recommend Cain & Able's Kissable dog tooth paste. It has a vanilla mint flavor. Hiro loves it! Here's a video of me brushing his teeth.

Allergy Supplements

After giving Hiro Aunt Jeni's All Natural Allergy Aid supplements, his eye goo is pretty much gone. Instead of giving your pup benedryl, I highly recommend an all natural supplement instead. =)

Hiking at Sugarloaf

This past Saturday I took Hiro on his first real hike. We went to Sugarloaf Mountain in Dickerson Maryland. Our trail was over 4 miles, but not quite 5. I usually take Hiro around the trail at Seneca Creek Park but the trail there is very flat. Sugarloaf has some small rocks where you need to do some light climbing. I gotta say, Hiro did a lot better than his mommy!

Natural Remedy

I went to Whole Pet Central yesterday to get Hiro a new harness. They sold EzyDog Products. I was surprised they were cheaper than what was being sold online. I'll have to post a pic of him in his new harness. He looks quite handsome. =)

As I was checking out, I asked the lady behind the counter if they had anything for seasonal allergies in dogs. She suggested getting the Allergy Aid by Aunt Jeni's and also a small carton of Goat's milk. The Goat's milk is suppose to boost the immune system and Allergy Aid tablets is suppose to help with scratching and ear/eye gunk. My main concern is the eye goop. Every morning Hiro has eye goop in both of his eyes. Instead of taking him to the vet where they're going to give him shots or steroids, I decided to go with the natural approach first and see how it goes. *crosses fingers*

Monday, May 2, 2011

Seasonal Allergies??

I think Hiro has season allergies. The past week, he's been sneezing, runny nose, pawing at his eye cause he has EYE GOOP!! This morning his eye goops looked really bad. I called the vet on Saturday and they recommend me bringing him in. That's a minimum $60 just for the check up and then also meds. O_o He has an appointment with the vet this Wednesday. Some people have been giving their dogs benedryl if they have seasonal allergies. I wonder if they give it to them everyday during the spring. I would hate to medicate Hiro for that long. Does your dog have seasonal allergies?

Bad Hiro!

My dad called me at work yesterday and told me that Hiro ripped the carpet. Over the phone he made it seem like the carpet was complete ruined. Hiro was in the kitchen and I had the gate blocking the kitchen entrace but there was some carpet that was exposed on the kitchen side. I guess that's how he got to it. When I got home, I noticed that Hiro tore off a corner of the carpet that was bordering the kitchen. It's a small triangular piece that got torn off. It wasn't too bad. I did point at it and said "BAD HIRO!! NO!" He knew he did something wrong because he immediately layed down and started whining. At least he knows what he did. I do have some spare carpet so I plan to patch it up with some heavy duty glue. I'll post a pic of the damaage soon!

Sleeping in the Kitchen

I've decided to keep Hiro in the kitchen since the weather has been getting warmer. His pen is kept on the second level. The second level is noticeably warmer than the first level. Instead of moving his pen to the first floor, I blocked him off in the kitchen with the gate. Last night was his first night staying there. He did whine a lot. So around 10:30, I went downstairs to see what the fuss was all about. I guess he didn't like being in the kitchen. I can tell he was super tired. I ended up petting him through the gate and comforted him until he went to bed. =)

Shiba 500

Here is Hiro doing the famous Shiba 500. He was so hyper last night. I'm glad I was finally able to take a video of this!

Monday, April 18, 2011

hmm..what's under the bed?

Hiro likes to stick his head under the bed and have a looksee. I don't have anything under the bed so I'm not sure why he likes it there. One time he actually crawled under the bed. I thought he was going to get stuck! O_o

Yummy Chicken Feet

I've been giving Hiro chicken feet for dessert after his dinner. He loves it! It's also good for his joints. Here's a video of him munching on his chicken feet.

Hiro vs. Bailey

This past Sunday I took Hiro to the dog park since the weather was so nice. There were only 3 other dogs in the small dog section when we got there. Not too long after we got there, all the dogs left. So it was just Hiro by his lonesome. And then shortly after a dachshund showed up. Her name is Bailey. Here is a video of them playing. She's only 10 mo old.

Monday, April 11, 2011

Uncle Hiro

Saturday afternoon we met with a 9 week old Shiba puppy named Kiba. Kiba was very rambunctious. They both played along very well. Hiro kept trying to knock Kiba over with his bum. It was kinda funny. Here's a video of hem playing.

Vet Visit

Took Hiro to the Vet yesterday to have his ears checked. And lo and behold! He has a lot of gunk in his year. The vet squirted some cleaner in his ears and put some ointment in there. I gotta do this once a day for the next 7 days. The vet had to put a nylon muzzle on him while she did this cause she didn't want him to bite her. Hiro has never bit anyone, but oh wells. I just kept my mouth shut. I felt bad for Hiro. A technician had to come hold him down. Hiro was freaking out. But he was a good boy. He didn't make one peep. He was a lot better when we got home. Last night he hardly scrached his ears. I can't wait for the next 7 days to be over.

This vet visit burned a hole in my pocket. Hopefully Hiro's insurance will cover some of it. ><"

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

King Farm Dog Park

Since the weather was so nice yesterday, I decided to take Hiro to the King Farm Dog Park to see Uncle Mac. Hiro pretty much chilled there the whole time but he did get some Shiba play.

Monday, April 4, 2011

Ear Infection

Hiro may have an ear infection. =( I noticed Saturday night he was shaking a lot. But not the usual shakes. They were more "half" shakes. He'll slowly move his head side to side. I took a video of him and posted on "The Shiba Inu Forum". That's how I found out he may have an ear infection. I did a good search on doggie ear infection and he seems to have all the symptoms. Head tilted to one side, Scratching behind the ear, Shaking a lot. I called the Vet this morning and made an appointment for 2:00 PM tomorrow. Here is a video of him. Poor HIRO!

The Kong Wubba

I ordered a Kong Wubba Snugga for Hiro after seeing it on Barking Deals . I haven't bought a new toy for Hiro in awhile so I thought "why not?" =) Let me tell you, Hiro loved his new toy. I didn't have a choice on the color so Hiro ended up with a Pink Wubba. O_o. I was hoping they would mail a blue one. After about 10 minutes, Hiro started chewing on one of the legs and now there's a tear in it. "Hiro! It's not a chew toy" Here is a video of him playing with his Wubba Snugga.

Homemade Dog Treats

This past weekend I decided to make some homemade dog treats for Hiro. I checked out a dog treat book from the local library and wrote down all the reciepes that weren't too hard to make. I decided to try out "Liver Bait Fudge" It was actually very easy to make. I ran out of eggs so I wasn't able to add it to this batch. Here is the receipe if you want to make it for your pooch. I'll try to show a video of Hiro eating one. =) Enjoy!

You don't want to give too much liver to puppies because they can be too rich for them. So I only give him about 1 a day.

Liver Bait Fudge

Makes 96
Prep Time: 15 min

Cooking Time: 30-35 min
13 oz chickens’ or lamb liver
½ pint (300 ml) cold water
13 oz (400 g) wheat and gluten free flour
½ teaspoon chopped garlic
4 turkey bacon slices, grilled and chopped
1 egg
2 ½ fl oz olive oil

1. Liquidize the liver and measured water in a food processor or blender. Transfer to a large bowl, add the flour, garlic, turkey bacon, egg and olive oil, and mix with a spoon until it forms a smooth paste.
2. Pour the ingredients into a 7x11 in shallow baking tin lined with greased greaseproof paper. Cook in preheated oven, 350oF for 30-35 min. Prick with a fork halfway through cooking to release the air. Check it is cooked through by inserting a knife. If the knife comes out clean, it is ready. Otherwise, return to the oven for 2-3 more min. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
3. Cut into 1 in cubes using a sharp knife. Place the liver bait cubes into small re-sealable freezer bags and freeze until required. Defrost a bag in the refrigerator before your next raining session.

Dog Park Revisited

I took Hiro to the Shiba Meetup @ Shirlington Dog Park today. The first time Hiro went to the Dog Park wasn't a great experience for him. But this time it was definitely a LOT better. The meet up started at 2 pm. I got there around 1:30. There were only 1 other dog in the small dogs section but soon more and more dogs trickled in.

I think Hiro enjoyed himself. Somehow he found a small hole in the dirt and decided that he wanted to dig it to make it bigger and lie in there. Shibas are known to be diggers! After 2 hours of hanging out, he got tired and would just lay there and watch the other dogs play. It was fun chatting it up with other Shiba owners. I only wish Shirlington was closer from Germantown!

Here is a video of Hiro fighting with a 12 week old mini aussie for the HOLE.

Pics of Hiro from the dog park:

Hiro's adult teeth are coming in. He still has some puppy teeth that are loose. I feel so bad for him. I can tell he's uncomfortable cause he'll whine and then want to chew on something. And he's constantly licking his lips. Poor puppy!! ><"

My Boy is Growing Up

Sorry it's been awhile since my last update. Hiro is growing up to be a fine handsome boy. =) While I'm home, he has full reign of the house now. He will be 5 months on the 17th. I wonder if he'll grow anymore. I think he's about 15 lbs. Here a video of him licking the floor. I have no idea why. hahaha

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

A Weekend Without Hiro

Tomorrow night I will be heading to the Windy City. My cousin will be watching while I'm gone. I know I'm going to miss him like crazy. Heck, I'm at work and I miss him now. =P Hopefully he'll still remember me when I get back. ><"

**Updated** Frosty Paws

I stopped giving Hiro Frosty Paws cause it gave him the run... =\

My coworker told me about Frosty Paws. Ice cream for dogs. I stopped by the supermarket last night and picked up a box. Not all supermarket carries them. You will have to check out the website to find which stores sells them. ( They come in a package of 4 for $3.99 and they're served in a small paper cup. (like one ones they put italian ice in and you gotta eat it with a wooden spoon)

Let me just say....Hiro LOVED it! I didn't want to give him the whole thing cause it did seem like a lot for a pup, so I let him eat a third of it. And save the rest for later. I will post a video of him eating it later.

What A Relief!

Usually on weekends, I take Hiro to the Seneca Creek Park near my house. There's a 3.7 mile trail around the lake. Good exercise for Hiro. Good exercise for me. It's a win win win situation. =) I hope that we see some dogs so I can see if Hiro is scared of them after yesterday's traumatizing experience. We didn't see any dogs during the first half of the trail. I wondering, "Where are the dogs?!" We usually see at least 3-4 dogs on the trail. Finally alas! During our last stretch of the trail, we run into 2 huge golden labs and mixed dog. Hiro was so happy to see them! He actually wanted to play with them! I was such a happy mom. Phew!!!

Dog Park

This past Saturday I decided to take Hiro to the dog park since he got all his shots. I took him to the one in Germantown. Let's just say it was a very traumatizing experience for him. He was the smallest dog there. After I put him down, all the other dogs wanted to come over and say "HI" and they started chasing after him. This totally freaked him out. Did I mention that there was a pitbull there as well? The bf immediately picked him up. The pitbull jumped on him and knocked him over (he's okay). So we just ended up holding him the rest of the time while we were there. After that incident, I was afraid Hiro would be scared of all dogs......
I would definitely take him to another dog park were they segregate the big dogs from the small dogs or until he gets bigger! O_o

Watch Dog?

My parents have been watching Hiro during the while I'm at work. One day my dad told me that Hiro was looking out of the porch door and he started barking at someone that was walking along the sidewalk. My dad said that was good he barked. Will he make a good guard dog? O_o I guess I'll keep him just for that. ;)

Here's a pic of Hiro that I took yesterday while he was napping. =)

Will the Tooth Fairy Visit?

Last night while playing with one of his toys, Hiro lost one of his puppy teeth! To be specific, one of his incisors. I noticed that one of his toy has a red stain on it. I looked at his toy and saw his puppy tooth was stuck on it. It's so cute! It's smaller than a grain of rice. I tried to take a picture of it with my phone but the image was fuzzy. I'll see how many of his baby teeth I can collect. =P

Here's a pic of his new toy. I had to put the spider one to rest since the legs were all chewed apart. Only $3.99 @ Target. =)

Sweet Potato

For the past few days I'v been adding a spoonful of mashed sweet potato to Hiro's kibble. I've noticed that he poops A LOT more. Instead of the average 3-4 times a day, he poops 5-6 times. I thought sweet potato is suppose to be good for them. O_o

New Bed

Who said you need to spend an arm and a leg on a dog bed? I went to Bed Bath & Beyond yesterday and found this awesome cushion in the clearance section. Let me tell you, it was a steal! Only $10 bux after the 20% off coupon. I knew that Hiro would love it! Here is the proof!!

Monday, January 24, 2011


Everytime when Hiro yawns, he makes a howling sound at the end. I think that is the most cutest thing is the world. I can watch him do this all day long. S thinks his howl is too girly. I don't care, it's uber cute!!

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Scared Of Balloons

I hosted my brother's baby shower. S and I each blew up 10 balloons. Hiro is scared of them. hehe... he kept trying to run away from them.

Monday, January 17, 2011

First Hike

S and I took Hiro hiking for the first time today. I have to say he did an excellent job. He hardly went off trail. Hiro kept the pace for our walk. For a small pup, he definately has a lot of stamina! We're definatly take him hiking more. We took him to Seneca Creek Park. We only went about 1/4 of the way and turned back cause it was getting dark. Next time we'll see if we can go further. I wish I brought my camera with me. He crashed when we got home. =)

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Already 4 weeks

Wow, I can't believe it will be 4 weeks tomorrow since I picked up Hiro at the airport. My friend who watches Hiro during the day takes a lot of pics from his phone. Here are a few from the night at Reagan Airport. He was so tiny!!

Monday, January 10, 2011

**Updated**Puppy Training - Revisited

Woohoo! Hiro's first puppy training class is finally approaching! I can't wait!!!!

Hiro's first puppy training class was suppose to be yesterday at 1 pm but the trainer called me yesterday and told me that Hiro was the only pup registered. She asked me to move him to Sat Jan 22. Now we gotta wait 2 more week! D'oh!! I'm not happy.

Here is another video. Enjoy!

Shiba Hiccup?

Apparently dogs get hiccups too! I've recorded Hiro with the hiccups!
You have to pay attention to the area below his harness clip.

Hiro's First Bully Stick

I decided to take a trip to Petco since I was running out wipes and curb bags. Petco was also having a 50% off of the Holiday dog toys. Score! I got 3 new toys for Hiro. AND I got a 3 pack bully stick. Hiro loved it! I hope he's not too young for bully sticks.

Here is a video of Hiro eating his first bully stick. I only gave him half.
