Memorial to Japan's First Therapy Dog, Chirori and her five puppies.
The first certified therapy dog in Japan.
In Memory of the Legendary Chirori
Chirori was abandoned along with her five young offspring and was about to be put down.
After having been given another chance to live, she became a therapy dog.
At various medical institutions throughout Japan,
she encouraged and supported elderly and disabled people with her gifted charm.
She greatly contributed to the social awareness of the power of therapy dogs
and was influential in the re-drafting of the Japanese Law for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
"Nothing but love to you, Chirori."
