A Grandma’s Special Bond with Jindol

In a country where animals have basically no rights and are, to the majority, 1. Food 2. An accessory 3. To be photographed and placed on an accessory, this is such a refreshing story to read.

A Grandma’s Special Bond with Jindol

At the corner supermarket she runs, the grandmother is saying, “Jindol, it’s getting a bit stuffy in here, isn’t it? Let’s go out for a walk.”
She feels sorry for Jindol, her “Baekdu” breed, being cooped up in the supermarket all day. So, she likes to take him for walks several times a day around the neighborhood, whenever she gets a chance.
They've been together for 13 years.
She's really proud of Jindol. You can see it in the way she walks with him trotting alongside. They both look very fit for their ages. It must be all that walking they do!
After getting back from a walk they took a rest, and while the photographer was there, the subject of Jindol's age came up. “Jindol, you must not go off anywhere," the grandmother was saying. And emotions got the better of her, as she thought about the inevitable.
At his age, he's equivalent to an old man in human years. So, here they are growing old together, in a loving and caring relationship countless dogs in Korea could only dream about.
