10 Promises To My Dog

Xue Er (Snowy) is our first dog as explained in my article before. She is giving us hard time adjusting with her and lots of enjoyment at the same time. Life is interesting in some way. When we pay attention to our puppy, Xue Er, we start to come across lots of dog thing. There are some important change of our lives, which we believe Xue Er gave to us, but I will write about it when it was all done. Today, I wanted to share a Japanese movie which made us cry. Its title is "10 promises to my dog". Opening of the movie already caught my eyes and ears, it said.

"God created human beings. Next day, God found they are so vulnerable. So, He decided give them dogs."

YouTube Link is below. Seeing is believing.

The movie released in Japanese Theaters in March, 2008. This is about relationship between a girl who lost her mother and her dog, golden retriever puppy. The girl's mother before she died taught her girl how to build relationship with her new puppy, "Socks". It is written:

1) Listen patiently to what I have to say.
2) Trust me, for I am always on your side.
3) Play with me a lot.
4) Don’t forget that I have feelings too.
5) Let’s never fight, ‘Cause someday, I’ll be big enough to win.
6) If I don’t obey you, I have a good reason.
7) You have school, and friends. But as for me, I only have you.
8) Stay my best friend even when I’m old.
9) I’ll only live about ten years, so let’s make every moment count.
10) I’ll never forget our life together. So when my time comes, please be by my side.

I can spend whole day explaining this movie, but I recommend you to watch this movie if you are a dog lover. Here is the link:


Wiki has motion picture file:

As for Xue Er, my wife and I decided her English name to be "Snowy", instead of "Snow" as my English blog friend called her so. Snowy is growing incredibly fast. She is becoming bigger and bigger, stronger and stronger everyday. Unbelievable. Below is the recent picture we took.

Hello Hilary,

Dogs are human beings' oldest friends. Snowy is our first dog, but we found that she is irresistablly cute. She worry about us more than we worry about her.

Thank you for your comment.
