Pooper looks appropriately impressed in his dog license photo.
Our favorite resident canine is now officially registered with the city of Beijing. Pooper, expat Eric’s friendly, mid-size, mixed-breed mutt, got his dog license the other day.
The license contains all his pertinent information, such as his name, color, the owner’s name and address. Plus a great mug shot that captures Pooper’s quiet, stoic demeanor.
There are a variety of pets among the residents of China Daily’s apartments for foreigners, including cats, dogs, a pair of big turtles and fish. There are even a couple of dogs, but Pooper, frequently seen out and about with Eric, is a stand out.
The kids love him. Six-year-old Ben beams when Eric lets him help take Pooper for a walk. And Ben’s mom says he sometimes runs up to Eric’s apartment, to see if Pooper can play.
