Best movie ever - must see!!

Okay so it is not about horses, but last night I watched this movie with my parents, And all three of us, including my dad were bawling our eyes out, and my dads a tough guy, not one to cry.
It is based on a true story, A man finds a puppy at a train station, well the puppy finds him, and the puppy (Hatchi) and this man grow an amazing bond over time, Every morning Hatchi walks him to the train station, and goes home. He returns to the train station at 5pm to pick up the professor. But one day the Professor doesn't come back, and Hatchi continues to wait everyday outside the train station for his owner for 9 years.

Quote:
This heartwarming true story is an American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko. This very special friend would accompany his master to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty. Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya station in Japan as a permanent reminder of his devotion and love.
Everyone, this is a truly touching movie.
And if any of you know what it is like to truly have a strong bond with an animal, this movie is for you, I know it touched me a lot more because it reminded me of my horse who passed away.

I srsly hate you I've quit smoking and I'm all emotional and that **** preview made me CRY!

I'll bug Shay-la about renting it tonight, haha. We just saw My Sister's Keeper so we could have a sob night - I typically HATE movies that make me cry, and that one was a doozy!

When I got to Japan I am definitely getting my picture taken with Hachiko's statue. It's a popular meeting place nowadays.

It reminds me of Greyfriars Bobby, it's about a skye terrier, he also has a statue, theres a wiki about him. I had the movie, it was good.

I just watched My Sister's Keeper tonight , and I cried from the beginning to the end. Def a good movie but was very emotional.

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
