Red, a maltese and one of my family dogs in Japan, passed away peacefully at home today.
My mom and uncle Kishin were with him.
Red is Kiki's big brother...(Kiki is my grandma's dog who also passed away recently)
When I was in Japan last summer, he was very fine eating a lot and all even though he had trouble seeing and hearing.
I'm planing to go to Japan again in October this year and I was naturally hoping that I would see him like I did last summer.
This news gave me lots of tears...
But you know what.
I did have fun with him when I was there in August.
I took him out to walk along with other doggies and I carried him with a baby sling so I could be with him all the time.
I did spend a lot time as much as I could.
Thank god I had those chances before he was gone.
A couple months ago, my brother Tatsuya who lives in NY went back to Japan for about a month, too.
I'm glad that Red could meet all the family members.
