A dedicated dog has been seen pushing his disabled owner to work in Luoyang, in central China’s Henan Province. Each day Lao Ma, who is paralysed from the waist down, pulls himself to work as a shoe repairman using a homemade ‘wheelchair’ and his hands. However, when the terrain gets steep he receives some extra help from his pet dog Da Huang who helps to push him up the slope

Du Fan prepares to feed approximately 300 dogs he homes in a shelter in Wuhan city, China. Every day he feeds and cares for the animals at his adoption base, from where he has re-homed over 3,000 animals since opening in 2006. Unfortunately, because his shelter enjoys such a good reputation, local people keep sending stray animals there and Du is reported to be struggling to cope. According to Du, the shelter costs 30,000 yuan (£3,200) per month to run.

The Rainbow Mountains in the Guansu province of China are one of the natural wonders of the world. Why are they rainbow? It’s because of the oxidizing of the minerals that are deposited in the mountain’s sandstone. The red is oxidized iron (think rust), the yellow is oxidized limonite and goethite, and the green and blues are due to chlorite or iron silicate clays. (📷: imaginechina.com)
