Taking this Saturday away from school to "Do what makes me happy". Every day I hear about how lonely she is when I'm gone. Unfortunately, even when I come home I have little time to spend with her. So today was "hold Khaya day" because that's what makes us both happy. #puppydays#physicianassistantstudent#needydog#mygirl
The Story of Tami Akanuma
When a person thinks of heroes, they think of everyday heroes, such as the ones who enforce law, combats the scorching heats of fires, in any sense, heroes are made of those who risk their lives for others. Yet, there are heroes that always unexpected, ones who hidden in plain sight, and never seen until the time comes for them to take action. This hero is a 12-year-old Shih Tzu named Babu, a dog who had guided her elderly 83-year-old owner, Tami Akanuma, away from a devastating Tsunami that had swept her town away and flattened by muddy water. The reason why lives on today is because of her loyal dog Babu by bringing her away from this certain death.
It was on a normal day in Miyako, Japan, when all of a sudden, the elderly dog seemed disgruntled by a sudden urge to walk outside. Babu, never usually as upbeat to go on a walk, seemed to itching to leave the home where he and Akanuma had been living. Akanuma knew it was too early for her little dog to walk, but as soon as the power had gone out in her home, she finally decided to put the leash on her dog. Once outside, Akanuma had heard the warning from a city telecom and knew of the impending dangers. As she headed the normal route where she would walk, her dog was very reluctant to take the normal route. After a long arduous journey (about 219 yards away), Akanuma and Babu had watched their town flatten from the large tsunami.
Babu, knew what was going to happen before it even occurred, and even though Babu is a dog, he is still a silent hero who acted when he was needed the most. Akanuma may live longer knowing that her friend is out to protect her, no one is able to tell how Babu was able to detect that tsunami which would have taken both of their lives, but he did. It is said that animals do have a 6th sense in which we humans cannot yet comprehend, but it is because of that sense that Akanuma and Babu can live another day. This is proof of what we can learn from animals, and even be saved by these beings that we can call friends.

Not only should you have a @barefootdreams sweater but your dog should too! @piper.spice is obsessed with hers. It’s the cutest thing, she gets so excited when I pull it out of the drawer for her to wear 😭☺️ It’s a little extra but she’s worth it ❤️
Throwback to my puppy days and the first time I got to try a cube of ice 🐶❄️
I wasn’t really sure what to do with it and it was very cold 🥶
Eventually I dropped it and continued to look at it for quite some time, during which the ice melted and then I licked up the water. Ice is funny like that.
These days I love crunching on a cube of ice and kicking it around the floor 🐾🙈
It slides across the room at a zillion miles an hour 😂
