When a group of Chinese cyclists came across a stray dog sleeping in the middle of the road, they gave her a drumstick, then pushed on with their 1,000-mile ride to Tibet. But to their surprise, the homeless mutt spent the next 24 days accompanying them on their trek.

Xiao Sa, or "Little Sa," as the cyclists named her, climbed 10 mountains over 13,000 feet high, and she ran on uphill sections where many bikers prefer to take the bus.

The journey now completed, Zhang He, the cyclist who fed her the drumstick, says she is "a buddy and a friend." He said he "would like to take the dog home and take care of her. She has been a stray on the road for a long time. She needs a home."

OK, OK -- the Taipei Zoo's little koala joey is a little short on actual fluff... the lack of fur signals a month or more of pouch-time to go before it will fully venture out. Lucky for us, the joey likes to play peekaboo with limbs and snout in the meantime.

Researchers in China donned panda suits last month to help a 21-month-old panda and its mother transfer to a new home; the costumes were meant to ease the process by limiting the animals' interaction with humans.

And the real pandas were like: "Really? How dumb do you think we are?"
