This illustration is of a Corgi named Kou who disappeared with his owner on the day of the Tsunami, Kou's owner kept a blog about Corgis with many sweet pictures of him. The blog ended the day before the Tsunami, they were last seen fleeing from the wave. The artist drew Kou imagining how he would have grown in the year since the quake, she says that she hopes he is still alive and would like to imagine him grown up as the tsunami took so much hope away.
A year has already passed since that tragic day last year and we on the Rally would like to take the time to thank all our wonderful community from throughout the world for their support and commitment during our appeal and for the love that everyone has shown for the people affected by this terrible disaster.
