Dog Journeys 1,100 Miles with Cyclists (Video)


A team of cyclists – and one stray dog — have completed the 1,100 mile, 24 day journey from Kangding, Sichuan province, to Lhasa, Tibet. The dog was not, of course, riding a bike. Early on, a human member of the team threw the pooch a drumstick, and from then on, he ran along side the cyclists, climbing 10 mountains and enduring harsh conditions along the way. Now known as Xiao Sa, the determined pooch will now have a home with the cyclists.
