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.
