If you ever visit the city of Chengdu that lies southwest of China's Sichuan Province don't be surprised to see a cute backpack-carrying poodle strutting down the streets on its hind legs. According to its owner 43-year-old Zhu Tai, the dog can walk for almost a mile before it needs to come down on all fours.
Tai, who owns several dogs, says he tries to train them all. However, this poodle is by far the smartest! The one-year-old who loves performing tricks and dressing took a mere two months to figure out how to walk like a human. Also, though the dog is always dressed in a skirt and bonnet, it is a male poodle. Tai says the outfit is just more comfortable and easier for the dog to wear.
