A few years ago I saw my first Akita and totally fell in love they are adorable and everyone says so many good things about them, I have wanted one ever since. When I went to BYU my bishop told me the story of Hachiko and I fell even more in love. It is a story of a loyal dog who waits everyday at the train station for his owner to come home. The owner dies at work one day but the dog continues to return to the train station everyday until the day of his death nine years later . It is such a touching story and I'm so glad they made a movie out of it, talk about a total tear jerker though. I was bawling, I think Greg was too :) We can't wait to get one of our own.
