Dogs Never Lie About Love

-- an excerpt

 by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson


Many people have heard the story of the Akita Hachi-Ko (recently the subject of a popular Japanese film, and mentioned earlier in this book), owned by a professor at Tokyo University, who became a national folk hero. Hachi-Ko used to meet his master's train every evening and fetch the absentminded professor home from the station. One bitterly cold day in 1925, the dog waited in vain. He could not know that his master had died at work and would never catch the train again. Given a new home by the professor's friends, the faithful dog ran away every evening for ten years, returning to Shibuya Station to wait for his master, who never came. Hachi-Ko had a statue erected at the station in his honor, and when he died, at the age of twelve, a day of national mourning was held and the breed declared a living monument. Schoolchildren were told his story to encourage loyalty.
