Tedx talks, Ms Chen and guide dog Jenny

In early June, I was invited to Xi'an, China, to join speakers at a TEDx talk. The title of my presentation – which could be no more than 18 minutes long – was "Animal Welfare through People Welfare - a perfect synergy of intelligent intimacy". The theme described the wonderful connection between people and dogs – and encouraged the audience to consider the barbaric treatment of so many dogs that suffer the cruelty of man.


Just before my presentation was one by Chen Yan. Ms Chen was unable to see, and right by her side throughout her presentation, was Jenny, her guide dog for the blind. Highlighting the caring nature and forgiveness of dogs, Chen Yan spoke movingly about her fight to have Jenny allowed to ride on the metro in Beijing.
