We love dogs, and we know how really loyal and amazing they are, every day somewhere there is living proof of it, this is just the case here too, this dog, The ‘Hachico’ of Crete, really shows us just this very thing…
He really is a completely faithful and loyal dog, so much so that he waited for his owner and then passed away eight years after his human friend, in the village of Patelles!
For eight years now this amazing dog has walked every morning to the supermarket in the village, in Patelles, in Crete of course, and waited.
He waited so patiently for his loved owner to come for him, his owner, of course, was no longer with us, he died of a heart attack in that very shop eight years ago.
He would always spend the day in the shop waiting, constantly there watching the people come and go, in the evenings he would return home, his best friend was no longer there.
Years passed one after the next and the dog would continue his quest to wait in the shop for his best friend, never giving up.
It was the last place he saw his owner, who has been rushed away in an ambulance, out the back door, without his faithful four-pawed friend knowing where he went, so he just had to go back there, every day, and wait for him, all those long years he did the same!
The years passed by and his health was declining, in the neighbors saved their money and in the end, they took him to the vet so he could pass away peacefully without any more pain, and be with his owner once more in heaven.
What a truly loyal dog, we hope that as a human race dog will one day get the respect and love they deserve from all humans!
