Dogs in Beijing, China

Since traveling in China I've had a handful of people crack jokes about eating dog, and although it's true that there are dog restaurants in China, dogs here are more than just food. Many Beijingers have dogs as pets, nearly all of them small dogs, cute but often a bit dirty.

The dog riding the scooter below is probably the largest dog I've seen in China.
