A boy once went to a pet shop looking for a dog. He chose a lame one from a litter of five pups.
'You don't want to buy that little dog,' said the pet shop owner. 'He's never going to be able to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies. If you really want him, I'll just give him to you.'8 Jul 2009 - 12:00am
The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Hong Kong (SPCAHK) has linked up with Golden Scene to bring to Hong Kong the movie premiere of Japanese-produced 10 Promises to My Dog.

On paper, A Bite of Love reads like yet another tear-jerker exploiting the hackneyed theme of a pure and innocent bond between a child and a dog being torn apart by the big, bad world of cynical adults.8 Jun 2006 - 12:00am
What a wonderful solution to the terrorist threat - withdraw, concede they have beaten us, and the free world will cower behind its fortress walls ('Pull troops from Iraq', July 25).
That would leave the oppressed peoples of the world to sort out their own problems. What wonderful slaughter that would bring - what absolute and dangerous nonsense!27 Jul 2005 - 12:00am
