An American college professor named Parker picked up a stray puppy one day. He decided to keep it and named the puppy Hachi. A strong, loving bond grew between the two. Every day, Hachi would await his master's return at the train station. However, one day, Parker stopped returning from the train station as usual. Hachi, not able to accept his death, continued to wait in front of Bedridge Station every day…

Another heart-warming, yet heart-wrenching tale of Hachi's love and loyalty from across the ocean.

Manga: Hoshi Mamoru Inu
Both are about a strong, unbreakable bond between a man and his dog. Although still not as well-known as the story/movie with Hachi, the popularity of Happy's story has exploded.
