    Now this....is COOL! Stray Dog and Cyclist Story-2400 mile trek for the dog!

    A stray dog showed incredible loyalty, willpower and endurance, after she ran an extraordinary 1833 kilometers (1,056 miles) between China and Tibet. The small dog followed a team of cross-country cyclists after they fed her. She ran with them for 24 days, traveling from Kangding Sichuan province in China, to Lhasa in Tibet.

    Cool. Who would think that a dog like that could run so much, and so far? I like that they considered the dogs need to rest sometimes.

    Of course following the food source is probably the most important thing in that dogs life. Bailey will stop chasing a squirrel, or wrestling and romping with another dog,or almost anything just for a dog treat. Now he does a "squirrel sprint", and runs back to me automatically, and licks his lips.

    That's a great story. Reminds me why I'm a dog person.

    I expected at least a medium sized dog. I never thought one that small could do that.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    What I like is that she became the team motivator.

    The little ones are better climbers.

    What a cool story! I know I couldn't ride that far, and she ran it without trouble.

    I just watched a video of the dog and the riders on TV. It shows the dog trotting along and the dog riding in the bike. The story says someone adopted the dog. It looked like one of the riders kept him.

    On the local TV news today.
