By the way, if you know well about Japan, this story is a little similar to Hachikō isn’t it?
Hachikō (ハチ公, November 10, 1923 – March 8, 1935) was an Akita dog born on a farm near the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture who is remembered for his remarkable loyalty to his owner which continued for many years after his owner’s death. Hachikō is known in Japanese as chūken Hachikō (忠犬ハチ公, “faithful dog Hachikō”) — hachi meaning eight, the number referring to the dog’s birth order in the litter, and a suffix kō meaning affection.en.wikipedia.org
