LISTEN TO YOUR DOG
For many years Tibetans kept their small a great secret, wonderful charm, it was a beautiful dog – Lhasa apso. Wise people of Tibet believed that this dog could defend, rescue her owner in any accident. Maybe it is only a legend but maybe no!
I want to tell you some real stories. And you’ll understand that Lhasa apso is a faithful, reliable friend.
…Spring 1999. It was very late at night. Irina was very fired and was going to bed. But her one-year pet Deenika was barking and barking at the kitchen. Irina didn’t want to get up. Why was he barking? Why wasn’t he sleeping? She had to go to the kitchen. Her dear little dog was jumping near the gas-stove. And suddenly she heard that gas was flowing out of the stove.
The second story with this dog took place summer. Irina’s mother spent summer near Frjzino and she knew that Lhasa tended to bark only when there was a legit mate reason to do so.
So when she heard him barking she understood that something was wrong. So it was? She found him in one of the rooms with old furniture. Deenika barked and clawed the old matters. When Irina`s mother took it from the wall she realized this little dog had saved her. It was an electric shorting. And the wall was almost in fire… But all well that ends well.
I know how Irina and all members of and her proud family love their pet. And he was very happy and proud that they could understand and believe him.
The same story took place two years early in autumn 1996 in Tatiana Voljina`s flat.
The small kitchen is empty. The gas-stove is near the wind-open window… It was very difficult for Lhasa apso named Trosha to awake his owner. She usually sleeps soundly and she also can be angry for disturbing her. But the faithful dog ran from the room to the kitchen and barked very excited. It was useless. And the dog jumped on to the bed and to his owner. Being angry Tatiana rushed to the dog. When she found her self in the kitchen the shelf on the wall was in a fire. And the curtains were already burn down…
So it is one more story. The early spring 1997. Ira Solodovnikova was knitting in old comfortable armchair. There was a shelf with books, albums and other things over the armchair. Her pet apso Kapitosha were sleeping on the floor opposite her. Suddenly, the dog began to crawl to Ira and with quiet barking jumped back. He began to do it more insistent.
Ira decided that Kapitosha wanted to play with her and stood up from the armchair. No sooner had she gone to the dog than the shelf tell down on this arm-chair…
Tibet people believe that Lhasa apso knows every thing about the past, the present and the future and can “say” as about it. But we must learn to listen to it, to understand it, to believe it.
