Meet Saicy, a dog whose story has caught the attention of the netizens online. Same as Hachiko, Saicy also continues to wait for her owner to come home even after his burial. According to the wife of Saicy’s master, Saicy and her husband Elenito Bandayanon shared a very unique bond before he died.

Every afternoon Elenito would bring Saicy to bakeshop and to street food vendors to eat their favourite mirienda together. After the burial of Elito, his wife Marissa and his children do the same routine every afternoon but Saicy won’t respond as excited as before. Although the dog has her own family, Saicy continues to feel empty and lonely and patiently waits outside their house hoping for her master to come.

Since Elenito’s death, Saicy’s health constantly deteriorates. She shed off a lot of weight and lost her appetite.

Because of her story, Saicy is now dubbed as the ‘Hachiko of Davao’ in reference to a dog name Hachiko that became popular in Japan on 1920s because of the dog’s loyalty to his master, Professor Hidesaburo Ueno. The train station where Hachiko waited for his master built a statue for the dog and is now a popular tourist destination in Japan.
