A work of discovery into the exotic and breeds from Tibet and the Himalayas: the Tibetan mastiff, the rare KyiApso, the Himalayan mountain dog, and the least known, Tibetan hunting dog, the Sha-kyi. Research on Tibetan dogs is contentious. 150 years ago Tibetan mastiffs were first imported into England: only 30 years ago into North America. During the Chinese Cultural Revolution these remarkable high altitude livestock guardian dogs were nearly annihilated, but they have recovered and now are in high demand. Today, thousands of these dogs are found around the world, promoted by

Painstakingly researched and packed with information, this book is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition and dog care; it is very much a reflective review of the pastoral dogs' contribution to the working and companion dog scene. It is a searching examination of their past, their performance and their prospects in an increasingly urban society. Essential reading for all those with an interest in these handsome and quite admirable dogs, and lavishly illustrated throughout.

When Homo sapiens sapiens met Canis lupus lupus millennia ago, the result was Canis lupus familiaris, the domestic dog. Since that fateful encounter, the dog has become, arguably, humankind’s greatest creation. The domestic dog is the most widely distributed species (other than ourselves) in the world, being found virtually wherever people live, and is also the most diversified of species, with literally hundreds of recognized breeds. While we have shaped the dog, it, too, has helped shape human history in innumerable ways. Our Debt to the Dog is a critical historical and cross-cultural examination, through the use of case studies, of this most improbable 15,000-year relationship and an exploration of how this relationship shaped the history of the world. It is also very much an apology to the dog because over the course of the partnership horrific acts were perpetrated against it intentionally and otherwise. Our Debt to the Dog enriches our understanding of the dog and extends our appreciation for the profound complexity of past and present human-canine relationships and the dog’s contributions to our lives and our world.

What is a Lhasa Apso? The breed came to the United States during the 1930‛s. Several different American visitors to Tibet fell in love with the terrier breed named for their place of origin. Lhasa, the capital of Tibet was the major city for the Tibetan breed. The city of Lhasa was a center for the religion of the area – Buddhism. The monks each adopted a terrier type dog and the name of the city was soon attached to this breed. Thus the name Lhasa Apso came into being. Lhasa‛s are a small dog averaging 17 lbs and tend to live long lives. 20 year life spans are not unusual. They have beautiful fl owing coats which require much brushing and cleaning. The long hair helped to protect the Lhasa‛s in the severe winter of the Himalayas. Lhasa‛s make good companion dogs. They seem to understand their heritage and are a proud dog. Fiercely loyal to their masters as well. Their keen sense of hearing make them an excellent Watch Dog. They like to play and generally enjoy younger children. Sometimes Lhasa‛s can be a bit mischievous. On occasion when the Lhasa goes too far, it is best to talk in a gentle way to correct his error. When you swat him with a newspaper, he will tend to fi ght back. I discovered this early in my relationship with Boomer.

What's the perfect dog for you? It depends on your lifestyle. Are you a couch potato or an athlete? A city slicker or a suburbanite? Do you suffer from allergies? Are you paranoid about security? With The Good, the Bad, and the Furry, author Sam Stall offers the inside poop on the world s most popular breeds and describes which ones are right for you. Stall has consulted with dozens of breed rescue groups to learn the best and worst perks, quirks, and personality traits of more than 100 different dogs. You'll learn that, contrary to what you see on Frasier, Jack Russell terriers make terrible apartment dogs (they have tremendous energy and need plenty of open space to burn it off). A much better choice for apartment dwellers is the Greyhound. (Sure, they can outrun virtually anything on four legs, but they're also content to spend all afternoon lounging on the couch.) Complete with more than 100 whimsical illustrations, The Good, the Bad, and the Furry make choosing the right dog a snap!
