The movie “Hachiko: A Dog’s Story” of 2009 is known by almost every person on our planet. And all because it is based on an incredibly touching and sad story of loyalty and true devotion.
Probably, today it is very difficult to find that person who would not cry after watching this movie.
Comments on the Internet make it clear that even the harshest and strongest men could not restrain their emotions from understanding what was happening on the screen.
But most of all, the fact that this story was completely based on real events is captivating. And at such moments, you can involuntarily begin to think that canine loyalty can be even stronger than in fairy tales or science fiction movies.
And, probably, only dog owners can explain and fully understand such crazy dedication on the part of animals! After all, any animal will try to help its owner and give him only the most positive emotions!
Akita Inu dog named Hachiko lived in Japan. He was born in 1923, almost immediately the puppy was given to a university professor. He gave the baby the nickname Hachiko, which was derived from the Japanese word “eight”, since the puppy was the eighth pet of the man.
A very strong bond arose between them and the dog literally followed on the heels of its owner. It was evident that Hachiko treasured his person very much, and therefore appreciated every extra second of spending time together.
Moreover, the dog really, as in the movie, escorted his owner to the station, and then met him after the train arrived. This continued long enough until the man died of a heart attack. And at that moment the dog’s life was completely divided into “before” and “after”.
