Dog brings home buns
Updated: 2007-11-10 16:33
A fair-haired dog has become well known on a housing estate in Zhengzhou, capital of Henan Province.
The dog, called Er Bao, not only goes to the shop and buys buns for its master, surnamed Fang, but also looks after a litter of puppies by taking them out for walks.
Fang said her one-year-old dog could sense what she wants and claimed she turned down an offer of 30,000 yuan ($4,000) from someone who wanted to buy the hound.

This sounds like a truly amazing dog. Certainly Er Bao is worthy of more than 79 words, no? Either the China Daily is a very small newspaper or it has a lot of stories in it. Either way, it looks like journalism has a way to go in China.
On a side note, I used to shop for my mother but lost the privilege when the buns I went out to purchase came back with teeth marks in them. That, and the fact the store always seemed to be out of hamburger revoked my grocery getting rights.
