So she is Riri, my host family's dog. First time i met her, I was shocked because Riri was blind and deaf so she could just sleeping whole day and just got up for eating. Honestly play or contact with dog its not new for me. But I was never having a pet with this kinda condition. So at the first day my host family directly give the meaning of real love that has really sincerity and full of happiness with her.
The photo that showed me with Riri was one day before she was going to hospital because she got sick and she was already old. In addtional, she was already 18-19 years so she was easily got sick. At that time I thought it would be a normal disease like flu or fever. But i was wrong. She got really serious sick and the doctor said she just had one week and just several day to be alive.
She came back on Wednesday but she was so weak and need some tools to keep alive. My host family was really sad. So do I. They were falling tears because yeah they had much memories with Riri. I could not falling my tears because I didnt want to make the condition more sad.
I stil remembered the time at 11 p.m Riri had to go somewhere that could make her release her sick and happier too.
It made me and my host family were really shocked and more sad because it was too fast.
Particularly even I just knew Riri 2 weeks but she was really important to me.
Because i could play with her even just touching her and make calling her name. This activity was really making me could release my stress and tired during my internship program.
I could not sleep at that night then i decided to write some message to my bookmark that I already made it before going to Japan.
This bookmark was consisting of all of Fujiwara family and of course with Riri too :)
I wrote message to all of my family and my family also wrote a message in back of this bookmark.
But i just wanted to share some of my message to Riri..
"Time flies so fast Riri. I am wondering you could see me and hear my voice as your family too. I hope you get the best place in heaven. In this last message I dont want to say to you "Good bye Riri" but "See you in another chance Riri.
Love from Ivan."
