Stray Dog wins Chinese hearts after following cyclists for 1700 miles

Stray Dog wins Chinese hearts after following cyclists for 1700 miles
When a team of Chinese cyclists on a 1,000 mile-long expedition from Chengdu to Tibet threw a stray dog a bone, they may not have thought they would attract a companion who would run with them for the entire length of their journey.

Nice story. They should equip the dog with a bicycle, too, instead of putting him in a cage.
