Bakai Glad was born around August 1, 2006 in Southwest China, most likely to an indigenous Miao family living in the mountains of Guizho Province. When he was approximately six weeks old, his owner took him to be sold at the weekly market in Bakai, where a chance encounter would forever change his life.
Mike Glad happened to walk through the market that morning and spotted the young pup poking his head out of a cage. Out of empathy, he took his picture and continued on his way. About an hour later he returned to market colors. To place your order, pelease read the information below entrance , and noticed the dog was still available and still attempting to push his way through his bamboo confines. Heartstrings tugged, Mike decided to take action. After some difficult negotiations, he bought the dog for $5.00 and chose the name “Bakai” to remind him of his ancestry. (To his days, his owners assume he must respond better to Mandarin commands, because he doesn’t seem listen to English ones!)
Bakai encountered many difficulties on his journey to the United States. First he needed a passport and shots. Then, after an uneventful first flight from Guyiang to Hunan Province, the airline pulled Bakai from a flight to Bangkok, separating him from his new owner. Fortunately, Mike’s conscientious Chinese guide persuaded a traveling doctor to take Bakai to Chiang Mai, Thailand. Through interpreters, Mike was eventually able to secure the help necessary from the airfreight office to continue the dog’s journey. Nearly 36 hours after their separation, Bakai rejoined Mike in Bangkok, tired, hungry, and dirty. Ten days later, after stopovers in Singapore and Hong Kong, man and dog finally arrived in San Francisco. Bakai now resides in both Bodega Bay and Modesto, California. he enjoys running down the street and is often seen being chased by his owners.
