First of all I watched the saddest yet heart warming movie yesterday, it’s called Hachi. Now I know I’m a little late because this movie came out a few years ago, but it was so so so good. I’m a big animal lover (in case you haven’t noticed) and I don’t know how life would be without the fur babies in mine. I think the saddest part for me is that Hachi is based on a true story about a dog named Hachiko. He is actually so famous that they built a monument for this precious dog.
Hachiko was an Akita Inu (which if I ever get one I will name it Hachi) who in real life (I think 1934)claimed a professor as his master. For those of you who don’t know anything about animals at least for dogs they like to chose their master. This is pretty much their companion for life. It’s some kind of connection that they have with the human being. Well Hachiko used to greet his master at the train station every day, like clock work. Until one day his master was no longer on this earth. For nine years after that event until the day he died he went to that train station every single day hoping his master would come back to him. The built a monument for Hachiko in Japan.
Let me tell you how much I cried like a baby. I held my dog so tight last night in bed, and she loved it. My dog is my Hachi. She came into my life at the perfect time and we have a bond. When I saw her at that shelter in Texas I looked at her and said that’s the one. I originally came into the shelter looking for a male and preferably a smaller dog and I saw her and instantly new that she was my best friend. My parents call me all the time and ask if I’m on my way home because she’s already waiting at the door. Lilly and I have a bond that will forever be something that only we share together. She may be just a dog but she’s my best friend. This is why as horrible as this sounds I hope she goes before I do because I have a feeling she will be like Hachiko, waiting every day for me.
Anyway, onto my outfit.
It was a little chilly this morning. The top is Ralph Lauren and the skirt is Marc Jacobs. The skirt was one of the ones I spotted thrifting. The shoes are also new, bought that at Macy’s and they are Ralph Lauren.
