Dogged Delivery Boy

Fast food and dogs in China usually mean a greyhound from a dodgy takeaway.

But this dogged delivery boy in Dalian, Liaoning province, has been specially trained by his owner to collect his favourite stuffed breakfast buns from his local bakery.

Fu loyally resists any temptation to wolf down the food as he walks a mile to and from the shop every day and delivers his load to grateful owner Xie Lang.

"He loves to fetch and carry things for me and was very easy to train," explained Xie.

"When I used to walk to the bakery for breakfast he would always come with me so one day I decided to see if he could do it by himself.

"I wrapped some money up in a note for the baker and put them in a bag which he carried to the shop.

"Then he brought the buns home to me so quickly they were still warm.

"Our early experiments weren't all good though. Sometimes he ate the money and sometimes he ate the buns," he added.

Now Fu makes the bun run every morning, especially when Xie doesn't fancy braving rain or snow.

"He's a good boy and never sneaks a mouthful on the way. I always give him a bun as a tip - but I figure he's more than earned it," he said.
