First, the good news: The Chinese are no longer eating their dogs (almost)!
A recent story from the NY Times, which loves to print pieces about how China is overcoming its barbarism one “civilized” step at a time–showing a particular affinity for “Chinglish” stories –reports that, although once banned, dogs have become increasingly popular as pets in recent years. The Times story tells tale (tail?) of status breeds, fancy canine day spas, and animal-protection laws becoming a phenomenon in China.
Now for the bad news: The Chinese embracing dogs-not-as-food idea has gone way too far.
I give you Lu Lu, the purse-carrying pooch from Henan Province:
Also: if you’re going to make that poor dog carry a purse and walk on two legs, eff that janky teddy bear shit and get that girl some Chanel! Even a knockoff–and I know those haven’t been banned in China–would suffice.
