Hachiko    January 16, 2006


The story of one dog's devotion to his best friend.

I stumbled upon the story of Hachiko one day while reading stories online. It made me smile and even brightened the color of the day by a bit. Perhaps it will do the same for you. You can find the story at this website or view it in pdf format

It is the story of a dog in Japan. Everyday the dog would wait for his master at the train station. One day when the master did not come home from work, Hachiko continued to wait for him. Day after day the dog continued to wait. The dog's devotion to his deceased owner became well known throughout Japan.

I enjoy stories of such loyalty.

It's rare to find such a friend.
