Cats are all the craze and get all the attention, I’ve even grown to
love like them, but deep down, I think that I still have a softer spot for dogs. So, it was refreshing to stumble upon those Taiwan Reminiscences from this dog-centric blog.
I never would have had the curiosity to dig into this subject were it not for a friend mentioning how her brother, who’s living in San Francisco, had adopted a dog… from Taiwan!
This kind of adoption is made possible thanks to collaboration between non-profit Taiwanese and North American organizations, allowing for some Taiwanese rescue dogs to find caring homes across the ocean. The airplane journey is facilitated by a volunteer who chaperons the animals from Taoyuan international airport to the States, quite an intriguing story to read.
For more information about stray dogs in Taiwan, check out the documentary【十二夜】Twelve Nights, freely available online and the review from the aforementioned blog.
And by the way, do you know how dogs bark in Mandarin?
They don’t “woof woof”, but they 「汪汪」. 🐶
