Good Day for busy pet-lovers, as a Tokyo pet shop began a rental service for people without the time to care for a pet of their own. You can now rent a pet from "Perro Moco" with prices starting at 3,000 yen (pounds 16) for a four-hour walk with a cat or small dog.

Bad Day for a man in Macao, as his wife accused him of having a "second wife" (a local euphemism for a mistress) in China. Neighbours called the police after hearing their noisy argument, but they arrived to find that she had sliced off one of his fingers. Apparently she was trying to cut off his penis, but he lowered a hand to protect himself.
