My mom often thought back of Rinse and cried secretly. There were many pictures of Rinse at home, and there were also many toys and clothes of hers.
Rinse was a very cute girl, and even a professional photographer asked her to be a model. So, I heard that Rinse’s pictures are still used all over the world. My hair color and appearance did look like Rinse, but I had a big piggy nose. I was also big and chubby, and my eyes were big, but they were droopy.
When mom took Shampoo and me to her parent’s home during the summer vacation or the new year season, she often said to her family with laughter, “Different from Rinse, Aiko is a little ugly.” But when she said that, grandma always told mom, “Don’t say that, Ai-chan is listening.”

I hope this film will be of some encouragement to those who are suffering from pet loss.
I would be grateful if you would watch it.
