From the Inside Flap:

The Lhasa Apso, famous for its glorious coat and exotic origins, has adapted well to become a popular and rewarding pet, and this superbly illustrated guide is an indispensable handbook for the caring owner. Learn all about the breed's origins, choosing a puppy, grooming, training and caring for your dog. Author Juliette Cunliffe has owned Lhasa Apsos for many years. An International Championship Show judge, she has travelled extensively to research the breed in its homeland of Tibet.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The enchanting little Lhasa Apso, considered by its admirers to be a big dog in a small body, hails from Tibet, the land known as 'The Roof of the World'. This mystical country with its barren landscape lies at a high altitude. Inhabitants, both human and canine, have to be able to deal with extremes of temperature and fiercely bright light. The Tibetans are a stalwart race, and truly typical Apsos carry many traits similar to those of their original owners. The Lhasa Apso is said to have existed since 800 BC, but there is no tangible evidence of this as written historical records in Tibet were not kept until around AD 639. Buddhism spread from India into Tibet during the seventh century. In this faith the lion, in its various mythological forms, plays an important part. Indeed the Buddha Manjusri, the god of learning, is believed to travel around as a simple priest with a small dog. This dog, although not an Apso, can instantly be transformed into a lion so that the Buddha can ride on its back. It is the snow lion, though, that is considered the king of animals and it is with this white mythological beast that the Lhasa Apso is most closely connected. The snow lion is believed to be so powerful that when it roars seven dragons fall out of the sky.
