When I was 10 or 12 years old, i lost my first dog, Pluto. into a tragic accident. I was so heartbroken, I didnt dare to adopt any dog as my own, for 8 years. yeah we have other dogs, but its different to the dog you have formed a bond. Then on April 2014, every night, I always hear a puppy's cry across the neighborhood. At first I thought it was just some random puppy and it will go away for a few days, but weeks passed by and the crying wouldnt stop. So I checked the house where the crying puppy is.
It turns out, the poor puppy was left with alone, and the owners said that they were giving the puppy for free since they couldnt take care of them(the other puppies was already given away). At first I was hesitant, since my family might reject her since we have so many pets in my home! But when i embraced, she quickly snuggled in my embrace, and I fell inlove instantly. I brought her home with me, beg my mom to let me have her and I literally cried in front of her just to let me have her. And to make things more cute, the puppy snuggles beside my mom, looking at her eyes like telling her to let her be a part of our already BIG family.
And almost 2 years has passed, she's still with us, making our day oh so fun. I named her Hachi, based from Hachiko, since she was one of the witness and also the shoulder I could cry on when no one else was there to comfort me and when I was on my most depressing moments.She really is the evidence that dogs are man's bestfriend.
"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.: -A Tribute to Dogs, George Graham Vest
