Chasing Ironies

Hachi

Posted on: August 13, 2009

This just broke my heart.

Hachi is an Akita owned by a Japanese Professor. Every morning, he would watch his master leave for work from the front door, then wait for him at the train station when he comes home. One night, the professor was not on the train–he had suffered a stroke and never made it home.

For 10 years, Hachi continued to wait for him, every night at the train station, until his own death.

This dog’s loyalty amazes me. I’m watching this movie, even if it means I’ll be crying my eyes out in the moviehouse. Trailer pa lang, naiiyak na ko, hehehe.

You can watch the English trailer here.

I loved this movie! I wrote a review at themoviebros.wordpress.com

That is absolutely heart breaking. It’s amazing how animals can show such unconditional devotion.
