hile dogs are generally known for eating kids’ homework, one pooch is out to change perceptions.
The dog has been trained by its owner to stand watch over his daughter as she does her homework each night, ensuring that the girl does not get distracted. The father, surnamed Xu, says that in the past his daughter often played around on her phone rather than doing her school work.
Viral footage posted online shows the dog making sure that won’t happen, hovering over the girl as she writes with its front legs up on the table.
Weibo users have accused the man of shirking off his parental responsibilities on his pet while also questioning the efficacy of this strategy. “Later on, the dog will be the one to get into college,” joked one netizen.
