Hachi’s story is one of inspiration, one that teaches us all about the importance of loyalty, faith and undying love.
The legacy of Hachi is one that has transcended time and space - starting out in a small village in Japan and eventually making its way to movie screens around the world. The wide appeal of Hachi’s story is in the potent, radiant energy of a dog’s love, loyalty and faithfulness. These qualities that come so easily to dogs are not so easy to us humans, which is why they’re so transformative.
Deeply emotional animals, our dogs feel experiences. They love unconditionally. And the reward for doing so is that our furry friends make us better, kinder, and more emotionally in tune with the world around us.
Animals don't speak our language - they have no “voice". But they speak to us in a more profound way than humans do. When you listen, you will receive powerful lessons that could change your life.
