Kakogawa Rescue Follow-up


Have you read the “Kakogawa Dog and Cat Rescue” article in the ARK Newsletter No. 71, our most recent edition? We’ve also blogged about it in the past, here is the link:
Kakogawa Rescue Report

Of the 26 dogs that were living with the man, we took eleven in. Two of these dogs, Mariko and Fuyuko, found foster homes before their owner passed away. We hope that this brought a little bit of comfort to him during his last days as he battled cancer.

The owner referred to himself as their “father” when he spoke to the dogs.
“Don’t come to your father! Go on, follow those ladies (to ARK)!”
“They won’t take you with them if you don’t follow directions!”
“Your father’s not going to be nice to you anymore!”
I remember the man speaking harshly to his dogs, as he hugged them tightly.

Sweet was bedridden before coming to ARK, but now she is able to stand up and walk a little.
Since she relieves herself while laying down, every morning starts with a nice bath for Sweet.

These dogs not only loved their owner dearly, but he had their trust and respect as well. The dogs were unwilling to open their hearts to us when they first arrived to ARK. However as the time has passed and they have spent time with us, they have slowly begun to give us their trust.

…and that’s Pugly getting carried away with the begging and smacking Yukie in the face!

After the passing of their “father”, what we can do now is to give the dogs plenty of love in his place. Their “father” always put these dogs first and gave them unconditional love. Even through his battle with cancer, this man showed incredible strength and continued to share his love and happiness with animals and humans alike. I will never forget that.

Here is a cute clip of Pugly begging (with people’s voices in the background).
