This story almost made me cry. If you love dogs, you'll tear up, too.

Really sad story. I loved it because it delivered a good message and it was so touching. This is based on a true story! Hachiko was a very loyal dog and I was very sad when he died because he was so devoted. Professor Ueno was also a great person. Meaningful repetition in this book. Must read!
