This picture was on The Daily Corgi today and after I recovered from the tears of the image, I was dying to know what it said.  Is the dog okay?  Were they reunited?


Can someone translate the text?

Wouldn't it be cool if, when things have settled down, these four (including the photographer) could be reunited and interviewed?  It would be a great way to showcase what first-responders do -- an awful lot of tedious training, learning, and practice, with little to show for it until -- BAM -- the time comes, and total strangers need them.

Just reaffirms that we are not all so different after all are we?  Different cultures, different lifestyle, and yet we all love our pets unconditionally.  What a touching picture! ^,,^

TThe Red Cross: The Japanese Red Cross has already deployed 11 national disaster response teams to respond to the crisis but you can support their efforts by donating money. Similar to their efforts to help Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, Red Cross is accepting donations either online or via text message. Simply text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone (you’ll be prompted to confirm with a second text reading YES).


Salvation Army: The Japan branch of the Salvation Army has been working in Tokyo to offer shelter to stranded commuters and they are  reportedly organizing a team to send to Sendai Friday night. They also have their Hawaii branch standing by, ready to help. You can help their relief efforts by texting JAPAN or QUAKE to 80888 to make a $10 donation.

God bless Japan and all of her creatures.

Naw, either your translations are wrong, or my Japanese skills are imaginary.
It reads, “A nameless rescue worker – one of many paid or unpaid highly trained professionals who dedicate their spare time or their entire lives to being ready to help strangers in emergencies, delivers the least of this day’s beneficiaries to a grateful and relieved loved one.”
The caption reads, "Corgi Rescue".

"Mitsuke dasari deta kai inu o namida o nagashite dakishimeru danse hidarito kaibo tai Sendai shi wakabai ashiku"

Tears of joy flowed from it's owner as a dog was returned by a rescuer in the Sendai area. Posted in the Tokyo Shinbun Takeo


Please forgive my translation skills (gomen ne!) but I think the picture pretty much tells the whole story. <3
