A man in southern China’s Guizhou province taught the family dog, Riceball, to watch over and supervise his daughter as she does her homework. She would always become distracted and play on her phone when trying to do her work, but no longer! 🙂
It all started when the dad, Xu Liang, taught the dog to guard food from the cat. That’s when he got the idea. Xu Xinya actually doesn’t mind it though as she realizes it helps her get her work done. She says it’s not as boring as doing her homework alone, and it feels like she has a classmate!
Riceball’s responsibilities are expanding as she’s now learning to supervise her sister’s piano lessons! The girl was 8 years old when Riceball joined the family, and she’s now 11 and the dog is 3 years old. They’ve grown up together and have an amazing bond that allows this to even be possible.
