Ok I was watching Animal Planet today.
I love to watch DOG 101 to learn about the different dog breeds.
Anyway today on one of the shows they were talking about the breed AKITA.
And I heard a story that brought me to tears... seriously. If you watch this you would know why.
The story takes place in Japan 1920's. An akita dog(Hachiko) was purchased by a professor.
Hachiko accompanies his master to the train station every day and returns each afternoon to greet him after work. It was a ritual for a year and a half. But when the professor passes away (1924), Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station every day for almost 10 years to wait for his beloved master.
Then he finaly died in the train station waiting for him.
I did some reasearch and found this video in Youtube it helps you see what's going on.
In Japan they have a bronze statue of him and in the train station paintings on the wall of him.They are also coming out with a movie.
If you watched the video let me know what you think.

Hi, today I went to the animal shelter.
I like going to the animal shelter because it makes me feel better to know that I pay attention and give a little bit of love. It also makes me feel a little bit sad.
The poor animals there they all give you a look like "Why am I here?"
"Take me home" And is so sad just to see them there.
They seriously don't have a clue why they are there in such a little tiny space.
A year and a half ago we took my mom to go see the dogs in the animal shelter.
And she got a cocker spaniel, she named her Saidy and she is such a good dog. So calm... she has good temperament. Is really nice with kids, gentle and patient.
And she is really cute. My mom loves her, I think everyone does.
