It all started when a group of cyclists journeying through the Tibetan Plateau spotted a stray dog and cyclist Xiao Yong, feeling bad for the little thing, tossed her a chicken leg. A couple miles later, he said, he looked back and was surprised to see the fluffy ball of white fur trailing following behind him. The dog was actually keeping pace with the whole cycling group!
But that's not even the strange part.
Not only could this pup keep up, this pup didn’t let up either! She continued to follow with them for 24 days, running when they were in motion and only stopping only when they stopped!
The group decided to name this pup Xiao Sa which combines the word "xiao,” meaning “little,” and "Sa" as in the end of the word "Lhasa" - Tibet’s capital city and the cyclists’ finishing point for their trek across the plateau.
One day, Xiao Sa ran a total of 37 miles with the group! Yong couldn’t believe it,
Besides the awe Yong and the other team members felt from watching Xiao Sa race with them, the bikers really drew inspiration to keep biking from her.
This story has a very happy ending. All the cyclists finished the 1,100 mile trip through mountains and valleys and Xiao Sa found a home. Yong had formed a strong bond with the dog. Now, she’s no longer a stray. She’s of member of Yong’s home!
