Chinese Dog Is Up to Two Butts a Day


Not having opposable thumbs makes Treasure’s addiction a bit of a project. “I have to light one in the ashtray and let her stay beside to suck the smoke,” Treasure’s owner, Mrs. Li of Beijing, tells the U.K. Daily Mail. “She needs at least two cigarettes a day.” OK, two cigarettes doesn’t sound too bad. It’s better than two packs. But then, these are little cocker-spaniel lungs. Plus, “She eats all the butts, swallows down the tobacco and then spits out the rest.” Gross.

How Treasure actually picked up the nasty habit in the first place in unclear. Mrs. Li told the Daily Mail, “When people smoked she would chase them for the smell,” but that doesn’t address why Treasure’s owners started letting her steal puffs from the ashtray.
So how exactly do you get a dog to quit smoking anyway? You can’t offer it Nicorette gum. You’re can’t shave its leg and slap a patch on it. We think Treasure’s got some cold turkey in her future.

    that is sick. Do they just plan to put the poor dog down if he gets cancer? Yes dogs can get lung cancer. That is just cruel.

    When we think we heard every thing, some thing like this story hits us right in the face. I can not belive what I just read. There is some thing very wrong here, and I belive this person is very sick doing this. The dog should be taken away

    This is the sickest thing I have ever heard. This person should be arrested for animal cruelty.
