When a Chinese college student stopped to feed a stray mutt during a long-distance bike ride in Sichuan province, she probably thought she'd never see him. But we all know what happens when you feed a stray animal -- you make a friend for life.

After the energizing snack, the pup was ready to join the ride. Bearing a slight resemblance to Benji, the little white dog followed -- and sometimes even led -- the cyclists on their more than 20-day ride, covering more than 1,000 miles and some challenging mountains. The cyclists named him "Xiaosa" or "Little Sa," and one even started a blog to chronicle its journey, amassing 40,000 followers.

Perhaps the best news? The dog's days of homelessness are over. According to CBS, one of the cyclists plans to adopt Little Sa. Hopefully his new home comes with a protein shake and an ice pack.
