If there is one film that will certainly make you sob like it’s nobody’s business, it’s the legendary “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale.” Based on a true story of an incredibly loyal and heart broken Japanese Akita who waited for his owner at Tokyo’s Shibuya train station every day for nine years following his death. The heart breaking sad story of a beautiful friendship between man and his loyal dog is repeating itself 94 years later in Greece, where loyal dog sitting by the window every day for 11 years waiting for its owner to come home.
When Roman comes home from work every day, he habitually looks up at the window first because his dog Toby is always there waiting for him. This heart-warming and habitual behavior lasted for a full eleven years
We try to forget the ineluctable, and it’s presumably a good thing. But no matter how we feel about it, the day comes and it’s time to say our farewells.
When I lost my dog, I carried her (ʙᴏᴅʏ) out of the vet’s office in a black plastic bag. She was a German Shepherd, so the bag was pretty big. As I held it in front of me and slowly made my way through the hall, people who were waiting for their appointments lowered their heads, pulling their pets closer to themselves. We try to forget the inevitable, and it’s probably a good thing. But no matter how we feel about it, eventually, the day comes and it’s time to say our goodbyes. They’re never easy. I remember digging a hole in a dark forest, it was winter and the ground was hard, I was barely scratching it. I remember carefully lowering a box in the hole and my hands clinging to it, refusing to let go. But I had to.
