3/18/2005: Chihuahua adopts chick

It's all about the Friday, in this one sent by another reader whose real name doesn't match up to a username. Thanks to you folks, you know who you are!

Anyhoo, what we have here is not a dog eating a chick, but a dog ADOPTING a chick. The entire story:

A pet chihuahua dog has adopted a baby chick in China. Huahua took charge of the chick as soon as owner Liu Bangyang's daughter brought it home. She regards the chick as her baby and stands guard to make sure it comes to no harm, reports the Chongqing Morning News. And, whenever the chick strays too far, Huahua picks it up gently in her mouth and puts it back in its cot. Liu, from Guiyang city, Guizhou province, said: "We'll try our best to raise the little chicken, if that's what Huahua wants."

Outstanding. Happy Friday.

a mexican dog in china, raising a chicken. who woulda thunk?

BigV  Friday Mar 18 10:52 AM

Clearly the dog is just compensating for the embarassing truncation of his name. "Huahua", shamed by the missing "Chi" knew a good thing when he saw it, and clearly he's not gonna let The Man keep him down no more.

I think the little dog is very upset at the loss of his life-energy (chi) and is using the chick as a comfort object to help it mourn it's loss ...

Do you think it's name is pronounced "Wa-Wa" or "Hooah Hooah"?

Does either mean anything in Chinese?

I googled up this from a dictionary:

huahua (象 声 ) 哗哗 onomatopoeia for sound of flowing water; splish-splash

Unless the name is really hau-hau and they have Polish ancestry.

Obviously, the pooch has an incontinence problem...

wolf  Friday Mar 18 02:17 PM

Not an unusual condition for small, neurotic canin ... oh. I get it. Giggle.

UT, what the hell is Wawa's, anyway? I've only heard they have good coffee.

wolf  Friday Mar 18 02:32 PM

It's Southeastern Pennsylvania's version of 7-11, only they make fresh sandwiches in the stores, and they do have awesome coffee, now available in many different varieties, including a variety flavors, and the new Kenya AA premium coffee. They're starting to expand, but for many years you could only find them in Phila, Montgomery, Delaware and Bucks Counties. They are now in the states of Delaware and New Jersey and are expanding even farther afield.

Leus  Friday Mar 18 02:36 PM

I can't figure which way is she looking at.

wolf  Friday Mar 18 02:40 PM

Neither can she.

Beestie  Friday Mar 18 03:02 PM

Wa-Wa is Hindi for swan (or something close to that).

xia xuan Taco Bell?

Elspode  Friday Mar 18 04:08 PM

Ah, that would explain the flying bird logo, then.

For a minute there, I thought it had something to do with Helen Keller.

We have had Wawa's in Maryland for a while now. They are like 7-11 or Sheetz and the ones around me actually have pretty great "real" food for a minimart. The calzones and meatball subs are not half bad.

xoxoxoBruce  Friday Mar 18 05:14 PM

The locals called it WA-WA until the white savages came along and called it the Canadian Goose. The stores took the name from the dairy that took the name from the village that took the name from the natives. Clear?

btw, maybe the dog thinks the chick is a "Peep" and is waiting for Easter to eat it.

chrisinhouston  Friday Mar 18 06:55 PM

Isn't the little doggie sweater cute?

ashke  Friday Mar 18 11:00 PM

Actually, wa-wa in Chinese means doll.

404Error  Friday Mar 18 11:02 PM

"Yo quiero chicken taco"

That chick doesn't look all too happy with the arrangements.

We're back to the lioness fattening up the calf...

capnhowdy  Saturday Mar 19 07:58 PM

.......Probably just a matter of time before the young fowl becomes kibbles & chicks...................

I used to work at WaWa in HS.

If my memory serves, it's something to do with the calls of the Snow Geese, either navigating or mating, I forget which.

They have decent quickie sandwiches and are head and shoulders above 7-11. The oveall appearance of their stores is better too. And when you add in the no-fee ATMs I'm a repeat customer. Now I need one here in Hazleton. Anywhere in Hazleton.

Gee, I figured they'd migrated that far North by now. ducks
