An amazing story of Love

Having a first puppy as part of our family as given me an entirely new appreciation for our canine friends. It is impossible to describe the immense love I feel for her and after eight weeks it just keeps growing.

My commitment on this blog is to share truths that will serve you and those you love well and after reading this story I was brought to tears, ok sobs, and I credit the expansion of my heart as being brought about by puppy love.

Stay away from dog food containing corn, soy, or other things you cannot pronounce as your dog’s body was not meant to be fueled by them. For all solutions to pet issues check out Dr. Mercola Healthy Pets online.

Let’s head back to 1920’s Tokyo where a University of Tokyo Agriculture Professor Hidesaburo Ueno would walk each morning to the train station followed by his Akita dog Hachiko who would then return in the afternoon for his humans return to the station.

Until one day at work in 1925 when Ueno died while lecturing and of course never came back to the station to walk home with Hachiko. Hachiko would return to the train station each and every day after to wait on his friend.

Doing this for ten years until his death. At that time, someone erected a statue of Hachiko. Recently a photo of Hachiko surfaced showing him waiting one day at the train station.

While some folks in China will raise dogs to eat Japan has a long history of loving and appreciating dogs and cats. In fact, the photo below is of his funeral shows the love that was felt for him.

The part of the story that produced more than a few sobs is that honoring the event from 90 years ago the University of Tokyo’s Agriculture Department has recently erected a bronze statue of man and dog together at last.
