I've watched a subtitled movie on youtube set in Japan. I've been wanting to rent it. No luck yet.In deed they forgot Hachiko and I'm really sad as the new movie will be set in New York city and not in Japan.
That's dumb, that ruins the whole point of the true story... why, do they think people won't like it if it's set in Japan?In deed they forgot Hachiko and I'm really sad as the new movie will be set in New York city and not in Japan.
I'm amazed that I had never heard of Hachiko until you posted this. I got teary-eyed reading of him going back to his old home and waiting at the train station... how heart-breaking. He obviously missed his friend so badly and never got to say goodbye... I wonder if he thought he had intentionally abandoned him. (This is why my dh and I are under strict orders that if one of us kicks the bucket, our pups must attend the funeral so they understand and have closure!) So so sad.....They forgot one...Hachiko.
I've always thought dogs are incapable of emotions like love, but after reading this story, I'll have to reconsider.They forgot one...Hachiko. I believe Richard Gere will be staring in a movie based on his story this year.
There will always be those who insist that Hachiko did not do this out of love, but simple behaviorism (he was just doing what he was trained to do)... I had always been told (and believed for many years) that dogs don't have emotions (they're not "happy" to see you, they don't love, etc., their actions that look to us like those emotions are really just instinct and behavioral shaping, yadda yadda yadda)... but I can tell you with 100% certainty... that is hogwash. Dogs can and do experience happiness and sadness... and they can and do love.I've always thought dogs are incapable of emotions like love,
