Mochi is an Akita Inu puppy. Mayann’s ex-boyfriend, the Japanese painter Jean Tsoubaki, gave Mochi to her on April 30, 1920, which Mayann optimistically interpreted as an engagement gift. With four weeks, Mochi was really too little to be given away, but all her litter mates had succumbed to canine distemper.

Mochi’s Confucian virtue is kō (孝) – filial piety; devotion
