Xiao Sa - A heartwarming story of a little dog and a cycle tour.

We just came back from a 40 mile ride around Vancouver, turned on the TV to chill out, and came across this amazing story - a stray dog who followed a team of cross-country cyclists after they fed her.

Nick-named Xiao Sa (a combination of "little" and the second syllable of Lhasa), she ran with them for 24 days, traveling from Kangding Sichuan province in China, to Lhasa in Tibet.

What incredible loyalty, willpower and endurance the little doggy showed after she ran an extraordinary 1833 kilometers (1,056 miles) between China and Tibet! One of the riders has also decided to adopt her at the end.

She really made my day and is a really great inspiration, what a great story - and a very cute pup!

You know that I'm now going to start feeding all the dogs I come across on our ride to see if we can get any to follow us too - ha ha.

We will be cycling the Pacific Coast Highway from Vancouver to Tijuana over six weeks starting in August 2012 to raise money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Please show your support by sponsoring us here, leaving a comment and sharing our blog.
