Dog drives a motorbike – level 3

28-08-2023 15:00

A video has gone viral of a dog named Sydney driving his owner around on a motorbike in Indonesia.

The dog wears a pair of thick sunglasses to protect his eyes from any glare on the road. There’s clearly a close, very trusting relationship between the pair, but they were in fact driving to a place where people famously eat dog meat.

The duo is lapping up some limelight at the moment, all because it is something that we are not used to seeing, but the dog’s owner said that this is actually completely normal in Indonesia.

Difficult words: go viral (become very popular),  glare (strong light which can make you lose control), lap something up (to accept something happily), limelight (popularity).

What do you think about the viral video of Sydney and his owner's relationship?
