    What a story! I'm so touched. Thank you for posting the link.

    As a dog walker, I used to spend time with a Rotw. every day. She was so loving and loyal. She was one of my favorite clients, even though she was difficult to walk. She had such a big heart. I'll always remember her.

    And, I just rescued a dog 4 weeks ago. I often wonder what her past may have been like and who she might have loved.

    That's fantastic! My life wouldn't be nearly as complete without my animals!

    Yes, dogs are very devoted creatures! It reminds me of a true story I heard on I think the Animal Planet channel where this German Shepherd in China would wait for his owner on the subway platform for him to come home from work daily without fail at the same time & when the man died, the dog continued to wait at the platform at the same time daily for at least another decade or more until he (the dog) died.

    Yes, Ms. I...Hachiko. The dog went to the station for 10 or 11 years, even after his master died. A true sign of loyalty. They erected a statue of the dog after he died. The Japanese have a great fondness for Hachiko. As far as I'm aware, the statue still stands today.

    Yep, thank you! :) I was trying to think of his name & I wasn't positive if it was in China or Japan. I even tried to Google that story, but it was hard w/o knowing the dog's name.

    Yes, I remember seeing the statue on TV when they were showing the story.

    Very touching...many people aren't that loyal.
