A Tale of Mari and the Three Puppies

Mari is the name of an abandoned dog who gave birth to three puppies after being adopted by a family in the village of Yamakoshi in northern Japan. In October 2004, a major earthquake devastated the village. Survivors were evacuated by helicopter, but Mari and her three puppies were left to fend for themselves. Heavy rains threatened to flood the devastated village. The family children searched for Mari and the puppies through debris and during aftershocks, but were rescued by their father instead.

Mari and her three puppies were later saved. Their survival story against all odds became a symbol of hope for the people of Yamakoshi in the earthquake aftermath.
