Dogs learn from owner to take garbage out
September 9, 2015 Mifuyu Hattori Correspondent of Ryukyu Shimpo
Hiroshi Miyazato, the head of Ura district in Kunigami, has two dogs, 7-year-old Butch and three-year-old Charo. They are always with their owner Miyazato and his wife, and love to help their owners with work on the farm.
On a garbage collection day, Butch and Charo carry garbage bags to a collection spot. Miyazato and his wife smile as they observe their dogs’ behavior.
As soon as the dogs hear the chime indicating it is lunchtime, they pick their bowls and gather food.
“No one taught them to do it. They must have learned watching what we do,” said Miyazato. He takes care of the dogs like his own children and enjoys watching them grow up.
