Faithful Dog of Korean Granny, Chinese Netizen Reactions

Chinese netizens translate a Korean story about the faithful dog of a fish-selling old granny.


The following microblog post is currently the #1 post of the past 24 hours. It is by user @妖妖小精, a female Chinese netizen who regularly translates content from Japanese or Korean TV shows, movies, cartoons, comics, and the internet. With over 1.5m followers, her posts have recently appeared among the daily top 10 most popular posts of Chinese social network Sina Weibo quite a few times…

From Sina Weibo:

@妖妖小精 One more story to share with everyone, about a “woof-alien” [a Chinese internet nickname for dogs, similar to “meow-alien” for cats]. She is called Duo Duo, and everyday she stays in a specific spot on a street silently keeping watch over the other side, with over ten years like one day… [click for original without translated English subtitles]


Comments from Sina Weibo:


Which is why no matter what I want to yell at/curse those beasts in Yulin who eat dog meat.


Reply to @许恒帅现在是洗大兵 [above]: That is two different issues, stop being a bogus fenqing. I don’t eat dog meat, but I won’t make personal attacks against [or physically attack] others.


I won’t accuse anyone, but this bad tradition of eating dog meat is one that really should be changed, as well as those people who adopt a dog only to abandon it later, completely without a sense of responsibility. I’m ashamed of you people.


This is probably a very ordinary/common dog, without any special breed or appearance, yet it is also so intelligent. However, this kind of dog in certain people’s eyes are animals without intelligence or emotion and to be used as food… Doggies’ emotional quotient truly exceed what you can imagine. So, I still hope people who love dogs will stop being so particular about breeds, and will adopt instead of buying, because when even the most ordinary/common little friend gets love and care, it is just as smart and cute, and will make you feel warm inside.


I hope the old granny and Duo Duo will remain healthy and safe.


Very touching! Though every time I look at your weibo posts…I’m afraid of the ending/conclusion scaring me…

[@妖妖小精 has in the past translated some very disturbing content, such as a mothers who sold her son’s lung without his knowledge for money to open her business (Chinese).]


“>Why do people want to eat dogs, especially those that have been viciously slaughtered or stolen from other people! They are all murderers!


What an awesome doggy, who probably wouldn’t live three years in China before being stolen by a dog thief.


Some people should stop dragging eating dog meat into this in order to get upvotes. Let’s get rid of all the things that can incite flamewars, and just treat this as a little story. This is a moment to be touched, not a moment for you to pretend to be a saint.


Those who say eating dogs is the same as eating sheep and cows, you fucking find a pig, lamb, or cow like this for me to see.
