Hachiko: A Dog’s Tale

It’s already 2:20 in the morning but I still can’t sleep or else I will be waking up with swollen eyes. I just finished watching the movie Hachiko and as I’ve expected, I cried hard over it. I think everybody who watched it did.

I’m not really a dog lover but I find Hachiko a very touching movie. This is because Hachi is not just an ordinary dog. His loyalty to his master (Parker) was overwhelming. If only people can also be like that.

They say dogs are men’s bestfriends. If you are having doubts about it, watch Hachiko and you will believe.  How did Parker find Hachi?  They actually found each other.

I just love how he bonded with Parker, his master. He walks with him to the train station every morning and waits for him at the same spot every afternoon.  So sweet!

One day, Hachiko was behaving strangely. Suddenly, he did not want to walk to him to the station and for the first time, he played fetch. He did everything to make Parker stay. He knew. He felt it that something’s going to happen to his master..that he’s going to die.

But even after Parker died, he continued with the same routine for 10 years even if he is already old and walks slower and slower. He used to run to the station eagerly and excited.

The movie is based on a true story. Hachiko was born in Japan and 2 years after, his master died. He’s been waiting in the station eversince until he died. In April 1934, a bronze statue in his likeness was erected at Shibuya Station.
