Hachi – movie remembers a faithful dog.

Hachiko was a Japanese dog, a member of the Akita breed, who’s human was a professor at Tokyo Imperial University in the early 1920s. Each day the professor would come home from work by train, arriving at Shibuya Station. And each day, Hachiko would be there to meet him. But one day the professor died at work from a cerebral hemorrhage. In spite of the fact that his human no longer returned home from work each day, Hachiko waited faithfully at the station for another 10 years.

Not long ago this incredible tale was made into a movie starring Richard Gere. And you can still buy a DVD of the movie on Amazon to follow the story for yourself.
