|I am a new member of the family now.
Please look after me.
|Dad, Mum, I'm ready to go for a walk.|
|I came to my present parents' house when I was 2 weeks old.
There was a park in Zama, Kanagawa prefecture, where people who didn't want their dog and those who wanted one could meet.
I was so tiny that I could sit on my mum's palm, and came to the new house in mid-October when winter was not so far away.
I felt cold and ofen sneezed, so Mum bought me a hot water bottle, and made me a warm bed of a cardboard box. Since then, I have been a member of the family of the two who have no children
|I've moved 9 times. I've been to England as well. Now I live in Komae,
Tokyo. I could walk to the River Tama.
But I am already 17 years old, and it's not easy for me to walk any more. I have several warts on my feet, and they hurt when I walk. My joints ache as well. I easily fall as the muscles in my back paws have weakened a lot.
The vet seems to have told Mum that I could die at any moment now.
Nevertheless, I want to live. I want to be with my dad and mum as long as possible.
