Pekingese dogs were developed in China. From the website Dog Breed Info “Pekingese were regarded as manifestation of the legendary Foo Dog that drove away spirits. They were venerated as semi-divine by the Chinese.”

So imagine my shock today when I rolled over a Pekingese to examine a mass on her stomach and saw a “Made in China” sticker on her chest. I have no idea where she picked it up but it was the most appropriate thing I’ve seen in a long time. I did manage to finish the appointment and leave the room before giving in to hysterical laughter.
