A street sweeper in Thailand has become an internet sensation after a picture of her carrying her dog on her back while sweeping the streets of the Thai capital went viral.
Mazda, a year-old Poodle-Shih Tzu mix, is seen calmly hanging in a vest attached to the back of his owner like a backpack while she sweeps the street in a Bangkok suburb, not bothered by passersby and the traffic.
"I asked my boyfriend to buy me a dog to keep me company," Mazda's owner, Thitirat Keowa-ram, 28, said.
"My boyfriend agreed under the condition that I bring it to work," she said.
Thitirat has kept her promise and carried the fluffy black and white dog to work every day for a year now, not bothered by the almost 10kg (22lb) of weight in the pooch pouch on her back.
