Pooch Carries Injured Puppy Around Town in Basket: Video! Too Cute for Words!
"A puppy found wandering the streets in China with a broken leg is able to get around town -- thanks to another dog who carries him around in a basket.
The injured pooch was found by a Mr. Lan, from Chongqing, south-western China.
Lan already had another dog, Black Tiger, who used to carry a pink basket of vegetables to a street market each weekend.
So Lan took the vegetables out of the basket, and made it a makeshift carrier for the tiny dog."
New York Daily News
I read several articles about this curious incident, and there is no indication that Lan has any plans to take the injured puppy to a vet. In a country where dog meat is a delicacy, are there even any veterinary hospitals?
Assuming there`s a vet clinic in the village where Lan lives, I hope Black Tiger carries the injured puppy to a vet.
When the Chinese citizens see Black Tiger carrying the puppy in a basket do they feel compassion, incredulity or hunger pangs?
I pray that the little puppy will grow up to be a strong healthy pooch like Black Tiger, and not end up as the main course on somebody`s dinner table.
