Chinese dogs are better than Western dogs

Contrary to what you hear in the West, not all totalitarian systems are all bad. In fact, rigid top-down systems can work really well. Take China. In China, dogs recognise they are unable to fend for themselves and, in return for bed and board, make sure they give their owners something back. Unlike Western dogs, who lounge around in baskets by the radiator (or AGA) stuffing their faces with organic Pedigree Chum, Chinese dogs actually help out around the house. That's because they respect hierarchies and authority. They don't waste their time dreaming of being able to vote or enjoy unfettered access to the internet. Take this dog. Sometimes he guards his owner's bike for weeks on end. Via BuzzFeed
