Lonely elderly people and dogs as partners scavengers (孤獨拾荒老人與狗為伴)

1451419_565481396865399_1816072299_nHe is a 67 years-old man. When he was young, he was a farmer. His wife died 30 years ago. His son wandered off 15 years ago. He became a scavenger on the road 10 years ago.

“I picked-up a dog at street years ago. I was alone, and the dog was my partner.” He lamented, “As long as I have a bite to eat, I will give it to my dog.” He said continuously, “There was a noodle shop next to the trash. I picked-up food from trash someone left, and ate myself and feed my dog.”

He can feed the dog a bowl by a bowl, without care around at this moment. In his world, there is only a poor old scavenging man and a dog as his partners…

老人,今年67歲,年輕時種田,妻子30年前就去世了,兒子15年前走丟了,在路上拾破爛已有10年。

他說:“這裡有一個麵館,又挨著垃圾箱。別人吃剩下放在垃圾桶旁邊的,我就拿來餵狗狗。

“小狗是我過年前撿來的,我孤身一人,他就是我的伴。”他感嘆:“只要我有一口吃的,就一定要給牠吃的。”

餵完一碗接著一碗,完全沒有感覺到周圍的繁華,好像這一刻,這個世界只剩下他和狗狗…
