of Another Dog's Body
An exceptionally handsome young Peking man named Chang had a dog by the name of Flower on whom he doted. Chang and Flower were inseparable--wherever Chang went, Flower could be seen scampering along behind.
One fine spring day they went to Fengtai to view the park's famous blossoms. By the time they began their homeward journey it was late and there were very few people around.
Unfortunately, as Chang and Flower made their way through the empty grounds they happened to pass three noisy young hooligans stretched out on the grass drinking.
Now these three young drunks decided to have some fun with the handsome young man, and they began yelling all sorts of obscene propositions.
When the drunks received no response they switched to more direct tactics. They jumped at Chang and started kissing him and pulling his clothes off. Young Chang was absolutely mortified, both embarrassed and terrified at this assault. He tried to struggle free, but he wasn't very strong and was clearly outnumbered.
Seeing her master in strife, Flower growled and rushed in to bite the attackers. One of the young hooligans turned his attention to Flower, stoning the dog and eventually smashing her skull.
Flower sank to the ground beneath a nearby tree, dead.
Having rid themselves of this nuisance, the three hooligans set upon Chang with greater seriousness of purpose. They bound his arms and legs with his belt, pulled his trousers down to his knees and then pushed him face down to the ground. Two of the youths held Chang down while the other ripped his own trousers off and thrust himself down onto Chang's buttocks, intending to sodomize the helpless young man.
