Domino & Hachiko Memorial Campaign
Thank you for visiting my memorial page. Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals nationwide. Please join me in celebrating their life and pay tribute by making a donation to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life. Thank you.
Domino was a half German Shepard and half Siberian Husky. She was born on May 9, 2001 and died on June 13, 2013. Domino was an attentive listener, bilingual, athletic, friendly, and a thug (she would steal and eat cheeseburgers during barbeques). Domino was emotionally attached to family members and was nicknamed by everyone. Domino knew who called her these names and wagged her tail when they did. Her athleticism was displayed during her digs in the backyards, tugs of war, playing in the snow, jumping on couches, running in the hallway, and opening doors to seek refuge during thunderstorms. Whenever someone had a problem, Domino would comfort him or her by sticking her paw out, tossing her head, and barking. She was like a K9 when she took down criminals. Domino got along with all animals (birds, squirrels, dogs, cats, and others). She had access to sleep in the couch and on beds; moreover, if you tried to get her off she would bark at you. If visitors came and were about to take her seat, Domino beat them to it (she got there first and would look at them innocently).
Domino was diagnosed with a mast cell tumor when she was twelve years old. Fortunately, the tumor had not progress much and vets removed it with surgery and medication. Tragedy struck again when she was fourteen years old, but this time it was not cancer. Domino was losing mobility with her legs, refused to eat, drink water, and would howl in pain. My family and I took her to the vet who pronounced that Domino had reached old age. We tried to give Domino the medications the vet prescribed, yet she refused the medications. She died on June 3, 2013. When I put aside the events that led to her death, I’m thankful that Domino had a good life. She knew everyone loved her and we spoiled her like crazy. R.I.P Domino.
Hachiko was an incredibly loyal dog who waited each day outside of a train station in Tokyo, Japan, in hopes of reuniting with his owner. His owner had passed away, yet Hachiko continued to wait for him. Hachiko was born on November 10, 1923 and died on March 8, 1935. R.I.P. Hachiko.
