The Hachikō statue outside Shibuya Station, a dog who belonged to a Tokyo University professor in the 1920s. Every day, the professor would go to work, and every day Hachiko would meet his master at Shibuya Station to walk home with him. One day the professor suffered a cerebral hemorrhage at work and died, never meeting Hachikō at his usual time at the station...Hachikō attracted the attention of other commuters. Many of the people who frequented the Shibuya train station had seen Hachikō…

Hachi, the Loyal Akita, waited 9 years for his master, Professor Ueno, who had died at work one day. Every day at the train station the loyal Hachiko waited...and waited...and waited. Hachi was so loyal to to the Professor, he has a statue at the exact place he waited, so in a way...Hachiko is still waiting...forever and ever still

" Hachi? Hachi? Oh, old thing! You're still waiting. That's right. If it's all right, could I wait with you for the next train? Yeah? Thanks." - Hachiko: A Dog's Story

Hachiko Statue, Shibuya, Tokyo. This is a statue of a dog who always waited for his master to come home on the afternoon train. One day, his master didn't come home. Still, the dog waited at the same time every day for years, until he died. I read a book about this and it's such a sweet story of devotion.
