Dogs Around the World


Look at this story about a woman in China who runs an animal rescue wit over 900 dogs and 100 cats. And she rescued 100 dogs in Chengdu after the earthquake.

I especially liked this quote:

"Chinese people prefer purebred dogs and the mixes probably won't be adopted," said Chen, adding that she cares for every dog until it dies. "But mutts are the most intelligent and the most affectionate. They really appreciate you."

And listen to THIS story:

One of her superstar mutts from the quake zone was a small, brown, short-haired terrier with alert brown eyes named "Qianjin," or "Forward." Rescuers said Forward and another dog — a shelty named "Guai Guai" — belonged to an elderly woman who was partially buried in rubble at a Buddhist temple that collapsed in the city of Pengzhou. The dogs stayed with their master while she was trapped for 196 hours.

"The rescuers told me the dogs were drinking rain water, then they would lick their owner's lips to help keep her from getting too dehydrated," Chen said.

Dogs rule!

Too bad someone couldn't rescue all those poor pups and kitties in Beijing when the gov't was spreading lies about them.

Thanks for the good story, man!
