Uncle from Tokyo

My uncle Makoto come from Tokyo.He is the creator of picture book and illust.
The reason that he came is a sake of the advertising of picture book "mole and wild cat".
We were taken a photograph together, when I just felt the embarrassment and the joy.


He has two little kids.And my mom told a story to him written in the book of German somebody.

"If you have baby, I wish you live with a dog.
The dog not only plays with your child but also protects from every dangers for the infanthood of the child.
When your child is adolescence, the dog shows preciousness of the life to your child by own death.
When your child grows up and became an adult, I wish you live with a dog once again.
The dog reminds you of the pleasure of the child care at the age of a puppy.
When you got old, the dog will show the way of finishing life to you by own death."
I thought the meaning of our death to be the last thank for the person who took care of and lived with us.

いつも写真のみのコメントで御免なさい
今回も
ブログの内容有難うございます。
なるほどなぁ~・・・と思いました
以前 我が家で飼っていた
ハスキーと柴犬のあいの子で
とても大きな犬でしたが
その犬から、
我が家の孫たちは優しさや、労わり等々
大切な心の栄養を貰った様な気がします
勿論、私もです(^_^)
これからも
楽しみにおじゃましますネッ
