Selma, our friend Mina and I were walking down the street on the way to the Bund at night to look at the view. On the way we passed a labrador puppy, I asked Mina if she could ask the owner if it would be ok for me to pet the puppy, since the Chinese generally don’t like strangers coming up to them and she asked for me and I played with the dog. Eventually the man asks me in Chinese if I would like to have the puppy which Mina translated for me. Have the puppy?! I replied that I don’t live here permanently, but Mina’s response was that she would want to have the puppy. The man said the puppy pees and poops inside, we think he didn’t know what he was getting himself into when he bought the puppy. So eventually it wasn’t the three of us walking to the Bund for the view, but the four of us. His temporary name is Bruno and he is the cutest thing ever.
Does anyone have an idea for a name?
For all of you worried if he has a safe home: Mina lives with her father and he is home 24/7 and he loves dogs. Mina is taking him to the vet today to see if he needs any shots, etc. Mina was already acting like a puppy mama from the get-go.
Only in China.
