Trouble in Hong Kong…

an outsider's perspective of hong kong

she is an old fashioned kinda dog

with 2 comments

cheung sha beach in lantau island is one of my favorite beaches in hong kong.. i went there for the first time two years ago on sophie’s fifth birthday. despite there signs saying that dogs are not allowed , the 2 km stretch of sandy white beach is isolated enough for people to ignore them and leave them be.

i suppose maybe as well, lantau islanders are a lot less anal when it comes having dogs on the beach compared to the other beaches around

i love taking sophie out to the beach. i love letting her be just a dog. i want sophie to be an old-fashioned dog because i am an old-fashioned girl. i think that in a way, people today are so rich that they are spending money on unnecessary on their pets such as shoes for dogs or prams. i know many people love their pets but i think we have confused what animals need. they don’t need boots or prams. they want a good run and they want to dig holes and bury themselves in mud.

i love being to give sophie quality time and good exercise. i am thankful that throughout these couple of years, sophie has always been by my side whether i am doing yoga, or a hike or a swim at the beach or a run. sooner or later, sophie will get tired faster than me, i am outrunning her now..

it always breaks my heart when i think about how short their lives are.. but hopefully, sophie by then would have been a dog that had been almost everywhere in hong kong.
