Any chance now, anyone can assume that you know who Hachiko is. Well, if not, he’s a dog who waited for his master at the train station for about years. He didn’t leave until he sees his master. However, it was an unfortunate event for Hachiko because he doesn’t know if his master will ever return. And so, he waited for so long that the dog eventually died.
It was a very touching story for a loyal dog who awaits his master to be home. As of today, if you’re going to Shibuya Japan, the statue of Hachiko is near the Shibuya crossing. People commemorate his heroic nd genuine act.
But do you know that this kind of story still exists today? Yes, it is real! In fact, in China, a dog named Xiongxiong always appears at the train station and waits for his master to come by. People who have known the two partners for quite long acknowledge the dog for being patient and behave even without a collar and a leash.
Every day, people see Xiongxiong at exit B for 12 hours until and sometimes until late into the evening. His mood suddenly changes when he sees his master going out of the station. Some people were quite amazed at how Xiongxiong is faithful to his master.
What’s more surprising is that, when people try to pet and call Xiongxiong, he does not respond at all. Also, strangers that pass by offers the dog food, and he never eats it—however, he only responded to his owner.
Mr. Chen, the owner of the dog, said that he had been with Xiongxiong for about seven or eight years. And he can’t remember a thing that the dog failed to wait for him at the train station. Xiong Xiong has been a massive part of his life, and his relationship with it is happier than ever. He added the dog helps him release stress from work.
Mr. Chen doesn’t precisely know what’s he’s going to do when the dog is gone. It is not new to him that Xiongxiong is quite old. To be specific, he is equivalent to 80 years (human age). He also acknowledges how long can Xiongxiong carry on with his life. But there is still hope that he can continue living with his master.
The video that Xiongxiong waited at the train station gathered around 10 million views online, making him an overnight star among Chinese users He might have ad endorsers soon like most of the celebrities there.
It was truly a fulfilling and emotional scene when people saw how happy Xiogxiong was when his master arrives. It cannot be compared to any single amount of money or whatever thing others might have. What Xiongxiong and Mr. Chen have is a commitment and loyalty that no one else can destroy.
On the other hand, everyone that has a dog surely experiences this kind of thing. Your dog waiting for you at your home while you return from work. Isn’t that a great feeling? Having that someone special waiting for you right in front of your door or gate. Perhaps, others have experienced with this kind of story!
