Japanese TV Show Follows Around A Dog For One Day To See Where It Goes

Pet owners that do not have the luxury of working from home, or taking their fur babies to work with them, deal with a mystery. What do their pets do all day while they are home alone? In fact, this concept spawned the idea for the movie Secret Life of Pets. What are these furry hooligans doing while their humans are away?

One Japanese woman asked this question, and enlisted in a Japanese TV show to find out. She wrote in asking them to investigate where her dog Sacchan was going during the day. She explained that Sacchan started out as a stray, but was given to her family when their electrician found him. It seems you can take the stray out of the street, but not the street out of the stray.

There was one reason in particular that triggered this lady’s curiosity about Sacchan’s whereabouts, which was fueled by the fact that he was gaining weight! She wanted to know where Sacchan was going to add to his curves. Her exact words were: “I wonder where he goes everyday to get that fat.” 

She mentions that neighbors have seen Sacchan down at the station and in the supermarket, and that neighbors who recognize him, give him rides home in their car. But no one can give her answers as to where little chubby Sacchan is off to, and what it is he’s exactly doing.
