Richard Gere

I’m totally tearing up now since I just saw the movie, Hachiko with Richard Gere, Joan Allen, and Jason Alexander (yeah, kind of a Pretty Woman meets Bourne Trilogy remix, but I digress).
I’m far from a dog lover, but this movie really spoke to me.
When I lived in Japan, I was familiar with the famous “Hachiko” statue outside the Shibuya station.
The story was of a dog that waited every single day for his master to get off the train. This continued for 9 years even after the master, a professor, died in 1925.
It was about 90 minutes long and a beautiful story of loyalty and dedication.
