- "For the first time I came to love a human"
- ―The Dog
The dog is a small puppy that lived in the Russian era of the series. After being adopted by the girl Irina, the dog became her constant companion and only friend as she worked as a child soldier for Putin. After being shot, he was uploaded into the Vocaloid Kagamine Len.
In the Russia EraEdit
- "If I had been intelligent it would have ended with you not dying either"
- ―The Dog
The dog was born, presumably in Russia, during the late nineteenth century and lived as a stray. Ignored by all other humans, the dog wandered into an alley, where it was found and adopted by Irina. Quickly growing close with his new human master, the dog would happily eat eel with her, sleep on her lap, and listen to the sad songs Hatsune Miku sang on the radio by her side.
On one occasion, Irina left the dog to perform her work and entrusted him to her comrade for safekeeping. Chained up and missing Irina, the dog took a quick dislike to the child and considered him a brat. Deciding to find Irina, he dealt with the other child soldiers nearby and broke through his chains; he then ran at the boy, stealing his yellow scarf.
Then fleeing into the blizzard, the dog looked forward to being petted and praised by Irina again, finally catching sight of her returning home. Just before reaching his master, the dog was shot by Irina's comrade as multiple other children taunted him. Right as he lost consciousness, he could hear Irina's gun firing.
After his death, Elena reconstructed the dog's personality, memories, thoughts, and desires into a data file, while also giving the dog sapience in the process. The woman then made the data into a spam file that would infect computers and show people the story of his master's death. The data was eventually uploaded into the android Kagamine Len, while two similar data files of Irina and her comrade were uploaded into Kagamine Rin and Camui Gackpo, respectively.
In the Vocaloid EraEdit
- "It's the you who's not a dog, eh?"
After Len uploaded his backup disk, he recalled all his "memories" of being a dog; included in this was everything that had happened to cause Irina's suicide, and he became depressed to realize that he was the catalyst for her rampage. Over time, because of these memories and feelings, he became intimidated by the girl who was so radiant compared to a dog like him. Eventually, due to this Len decided to give Rin her memories as Irina so that he could meet with his former master one more time. Eventually as Rin was damaged by Camui and about to disappear, Miku explained to Len that he was a constructed version of the dog and also explained the nature of the data files.
Inside the data world, as Len rushed to find Rin he looked back on his memories as a dog and how he was unable to replicate the unconditional love that he had for her back then. He also noted that the chains that bound him in those times, separating him from her, were still there even if in a different form. Despite this, as he moved forward he decided not to look back or revert to that time in his life in order to reach the end for Rin.
- "I want to chew on my happiness"
- ―The dog
Along with this, the dog was a mischievous animal that was disagreeable with certain people. He would also steal when he had the opportunity, wanting to show Irina his "trophies" after doing so. As part of this, he was also fond of showing off his strength to his master in order to receive her praise and affection.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
- "I can run without treading on shadows"
- ―The dog[src]
Although just an animal, the dog was incredibly strong, able to break free of his chains by his teeth alone. He was also very fast, able to quickly swipe the boy's scarf without being caught by him and running far ahead of him through the winter storm. Unfortunately, despite the dog's physical prowess he was not very intelligent and had no sense of right or wrong, unable to understand the danger of taking the boy's scarf and showing it to Irina.
- "While running, you're beautiful"
- ―Rin's description of the dog[src]
The dog was small and brown, with characteristics similar to a Eastern European Shepherd, indicating it as the breed. The small size of the dog, as well as its apparent breed, indicates it as a puppy at the time of being adopted by Irina. Due to being chained up by Irina's comrade, the dog was shown as having a chain around its neck at the time of being killed, although not otherwise wearing any collar or other adornments.
- "Only you helped me..."
- ―The dog[src]
The dog's life, as a result, revolved almost entirely around his master, wishing to impress her to get her praise and physical affection. Because of this, he was unhappy whenever she left and would even go against her wishes to be back by her side. This loyalty and love for Irina, however, did not extend to her companions.
- "Is that brat her companion?"
- ―The dog[src]
Someone to whom the dog was entrusted for a temporary period. Although the boy was Irina's companion, the dog despised him because he kept him away from Irina and had chained him up, considering him a brat. As a result he had no problem stealing his scarf and running away from the boy, as well as not caring if he was being followed by him. This distaste for the boy was only proven correct when he was shot by him, and the dog programming carried this same rivalry with the boy into his life as Len against Camui Gackpo.

- The dog's barking is taken from clips of Ronald McDonald's ad campaigns.
