With that walking stick, she looks like she's ready to climb Mt.Fuji.

Her pants are very fashionable.

I wonder if her dog's name is Shiro.

Is that a VHS tape at the lower left? I wonder if it's salvagable.

I do not think many in Japan understand the importance of pets. Psychologically, they are of extreme importance to their owners, and their loss can indeed be a severe loss to them. They can help their owners recover.

She's not much bigger than the dog.

Why do you think so?

I look at that little girl as cute as she is, but probably missing friends to other relatives. Fortunately she has a dog that she will love & take care of for it will do the same.

Yes children need a pet like this one, ESPECIALLY in her situation.

How safe is it for kids to be walking through debris like that? Any manner of sharp objects could be sticking out. When the tsunami hit, I read that a serious danger is the leaking of chemicals and fuel from electrical appliances and vehicles. I hope all of that has been cleared away from where she's walking.

"How safe is it for kids to be walking through debris like that" not to mention dead humans or animals which both offer their fair share of sickness and psychological damage. That dog is the CLEANEST thing I have seen in the devastation area.

Well, it could be dangerous, but I think it can't be helped as getting from point A to point B would sometimes involve going through some debris anyway; especially where they are living. Besides, I'm sure those people understand the danger, but won't let it stop them from looking for and through the place they used to call home.

What a touching photo. Very, very nice. I hope her family made it through the quake and tsunami.

What she's supposed to do? Stay at home/in a shelter for the next how many months until all of the debris has been cleared. It's not like she has a choice between a quiet walk in the park or walk through some debris. This is all there is along miles and miles and miles of coastline.

Seeing this photo says one thing to me. We have to do more to help!! Breaks my heart to think that other kids like her have been lost. We cannot let the people who surived face this alone.

We are doing events, helping with supply providers and hoping to go work on clean up. I am sure many people here have donated or gotten involved already. To those who have not yet, I hope you will join in too. Every little bit helps.

Remember towns and buildings can always be rebuilt, but human lives can never be replaced.

I was thinking of this little girl with her dog. last evening when going to bed. For instead of green grass, shrubs, trees to flowers she was amongst the maze of debris & not even any girls as one might see at a park.

Being as young as she is I have to wonder what is going on in her mind, like are he parents, uncles & aunts, to cousins along with grand-parents alive not to mention her friends.

Just that she is fortunate that she has this little dog & there will be that personal touch between them along with love on both sides.
