LHASA APSO AND OTHERS
Very often people who wants to buy a puppy ask me a lot of questions. One of them is if Lhasas are good with other dogs or animals? I usually tell stories about dogs friendship and also about friendship between dogs and cats, rabs, hamsters and even about friendship between dogs and birds. I won’t enumerate all breeds, which can live with Lhasas and Lhasas love them.
In my house Lhasas got on with Caucasian sheep-dog and chow-chow. My little Bu (Lhasa apso named Bukvarik) liked to play with Chow named Lialika or made off bones with Caucasian sheep-dog. Which as I think "laughed" at her. When Lialika was perishing Bu tried to help her, she licked Lialika wounds, mowed our her back tore Lialika when the poor dog tell down. When Lialika died Bu missed her friend very mach. She felt bad and thought that Bu was ill. We couldn’t stand this situation! So we brought little Chow Chika. Bu returned to life. She loved Chika very mach, defended her from other dogs. Bu also had and has a good friend; it is the German shepherd Gray. They liked to play together, they didn’t like other dogs take part in their play. And while their owners were talking Gray found a cat under a car and Bu drove out this cat and the race began. You hadn’t worry cats didn’t suffer from their play. But Gray is very old now. And Bu plays alone.
Many people have two or more animals at home. But some people think that two or three animals could not live together. But we forget about could animals who lives in packs. It helps them to survive. Your family is a pack for the dog. Same people say:"My dogs fight" or "My dogs are jealous of me". But we forget that it is their natural behavior, normal emotions. They must play, and fight, be jealous and love; they must live as people do.
If you want to have same animals at home you must know and remember about their behavior and relations. Any pair of dogs is a good, bold pack. Of cause, the best pair is a male and female. They work well, defend each other and you need not breed puppies it you don’t want. Two males are also good. They don’t fight much. But if you have females at home you must remember some things. Females usually fight for dear life. It is low of nature, because they fight for their own hand, for their puppies. Of cause, you can control it, but... For many years me have only females in our house. They like each other but they fight... Frequently they don’t fight. I know how to manage it. And inexperienced people I can advise to think before buying two females. You also need remember that it is easier to part small dogs when fight.
So it you have two dogs or a dog and a cat it is wonderful! But you needn`t have more dogs or cats. It will be a nursery. It will be difficult for inexperienced people. And I again want to tell you about friendship between Lhasa and other animals. It is a usual thing when dogs and cats live together. But when you have a dog and a rat, a bird or a rabbit it becomes interesting.
...A parrot Iashka was indignant at appearance Lhasa Venika. Later on he got accustomed to the puppy. Then they become friends. And now he liked to speak to him and rummage in his coat. But the parrot doesn’t like when the owner sets him aside. One gay Venika overate. And when the doctor came the parrot was very angry, muttered into his beard, and tried to show that he was better, cleverer and he also could be a doctor. When the doctor went away the parrot at once came to his friend.
My friends tell me a lot of stories about their pets, their love, friendship, about sorrow and joy and many interesting things that happen in their pets life.
