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?

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. =)
