Hachiko, A Dog's story.

Last night, i was rather bored and had the sudden urge to catch watch a dvd, i then looked through the tons of dvds that are partially covered with dust and finally i decided to watch Hachiko which was released some time back. since i first saw the advertisements and poster of the movie when it was first released, i knew that it was gonna be a heartbreaking or rather awfully sad movie. i decided to catch the movie but eventually missed the movie for some reason.

i finally had the chance to watch it last night after so long. i know right, I'm way to slow but it's better late than never. anyhow the movie is based on a true story from Japan, Hachi: A Dog's Tale is a moving film about loyalty.

so here goes the story,

In modern days, a classroom filled with young students gave oral presentations about their heroes. A boy named Ronnie stood up and began to talk about 'Hachiko', his grandfather's dog. The previous year, Akita puppy shipped from Japan to America, but fell out of his cage in the baggage car of a train station the U.S. where he was discovered by professor Parker Wilson. Parker was immediately captivated by the dog and when Carl, the control station, refused to take him, Parker took the puppy home last night. but his wife didnt allowed him to keep hachi.

The next day Parker was hoping that someone had contacted the railroad station, but no one has. He sneaked the puppy to train and bring it to work, in which Japanese universities, Ken, translate the symbols on the collar of the puppy as 'Hachiko', Japanese for 'good luck'. Parker decided to call the dog 'Hachi'. Ken indicated that perhaps they are both destined to be together. Parker tries to play fetch with Hachi, but she refused to join. However, the wife finally agreed to let him keep the dog seeing how close Parker was with Hachi.

but parker passed away one fine day leaving Hachi alone.

At the railway station, Hachi waited patiently as the train arrived, but no sign of Parker. He remained, lying in the snow, for several hours, until the child-in-law of Parker Michael came to pick up. The next day, Hachi back to the station and wait, rest all day and all night. Over time, Hachi Cate sell the house and sent to live with her daughter Andy, Michael and Ronnie their new baby. However, at the first opportunity, he escaped and eventually found his way back to the old house and then to the train station, where he sat at the usual place, eating a hot dog given to him by a local vendor. Andy immediately after arrival and take him home, but let him out the next day to return to the station.

Hachi started sleeping beneath the damaged train cars, remain on guard in the daytime and survival of food and water given to him by the local butcher.

Years passed, and still Hachi waited. Arriving at the station, the wife, cate was surprised to see Hachi, old, dirty and weak, still maintaining his vigil. Overcome, Cate sat and waited for the next train with hachi. That night, Hachi makes regular trips to the place where he lay and fell asleep, dreaming Parker. hachi never failed to wait for parker's arrival, whom was supposed to be coming out of the railway door then giving hachi a hug.

i absolutely respect Hachi for its loyalty. a dog with loyalty!
