The true story of Hachiko the faithful dog

i found this on youtube, you may of seen it already but if you haven’t enjoy and if you have still enjoy

In 1924, Hachiko was brought to Tokyo by his owner Hidesaburo Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo.
The bond between Hachiko and Mr. Ueno can only be described as unbreakable…
The two were inseparable and Hachiko even accompanied Mr. Ueno from his walk from home to the Shibuya train station where he would leave for work every single day.
Hachiko would unfailingly return the train station at the end of each day to welcome his master home.
But on May 1925 Professor Ueno suffered a stroke while he was at work and died soon after never to return to the train station…
Hachiko was waiting for his beloved master to return on that day as he always did before.
Soon after Mr. Ueno’s death Hachiko was given away but he would escape every day to return to the train station to wait for his master.
Day after day Hachiko returned to the train station until he eventually stopped leaving…
Some people who had seen Hachiko with his master were so touched by his devotion they started bringing food to nourish him during his wait…
The days turned to weeks… Months… Years…
After 10 years of waiting for his master at the train station Hachiko died with his gaze fixed upon the spot his master disappeared the very last time…
Today a statue stands in the spot where Hachiko waited his entire life for his master’s return…

Mandy Lion’s WWIII; An artist with a band that defines Heavy Metal in a BIG way with monstrous grooves, catchy riff-laden songs, and a unique sonic signature completely unto itself. Singer, mastermind, and front man Mandy Lion has led this electrifying band through the years with his incredible voice and larger-than-life persona. The original lineup boasted Joe Floyd (Warrior) on guitar, Jimmy Bain (Rainbow, Dio) on bass, and Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio) on drums. Lion achieved an intense sound early on, setting WWIII vastly apart from other groups of the Heavy Metal genre in the process. Lion has fronted many other lineups with such legendary musicians such as George Lynch (Dokken, Lynchmob), Jake E. Lee (Ozzy Osbourne, Badlands, WWIII), James Kottack (Kingdome Come, Scorpions, WWIII), Mikkey Dee (King Diamond, Dokken, Motorhead, WWIII) and many others. Mandy Lion is the originator of the extreme power vocal. Just about everyone who is anyone these days is trying to duplicate what Lion created years ago but none have succeeded. Imagine Rob Zombie’s intense growl combined with Ronnie James Dio’s explosive talent and Rob Halford’s infinite range. Lion’s inhuman power and growl technique fused with an unmistakably mystifying delivery makes it impossible for any vocalist to recreate his unearthly style. On top of that, Lion’s insightful lyrics paint the reality of the world we live in today with imagery and vision while presenting it with masterful conviction. Mandy Lion started a Metal vocal revolution which has ultimately spawned such popular bands as White Zombie, Korn, Disturbed, Pantera, Static X, as well as countless others… About the man himself… Leather-clad and lethal with his 2000 LB 700+HP custom Chevy V8 motorcycle (“the Phantom”) and his 100 caliber custom revolver is none other than “The Beast” himself, Mandy Lion. The most dynamic and engaging front man music has ever known, Lion dominates any concert venue with his uniquely textured voice and ultra-powerful stage presence.

  1. They made a wonderful movie about this true story, altering the setting to America. It starred Richard Gere in a low-key, excellent performance as Hachi’s owner. The dedication of that animal was amazing to witness. It definitely showed how deep the love animals feel for their humans can be, and how loyal and true they are. Good movie.

  2. I saw the movie based on this dog and his unwavering devotion to his beloved owner. It touched me so deeply, that for weeks I could not get Hachi out of my mind. The movie showed him sitting in his spot month after month in all weather and I found myself remembering this with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat.
    The movie was not a blockbuster that made millions but I know I will remember it long after the blockbusters have faded in my mind.
