I know the Christmas season has passed, but this is too good not to add to my "You Made Me Smile" feature, that is always on my front page. [link]

Amazing photograph!!

You own a Tibetan Mastiff?!!? You actually own this hawt dog?! Here in Canada there aren't many breeders.. I have never really seen one in real life before. :(

Your dog is beautiful! Hug him for me please!!! :hug:

Yes I do own one... Or should I say I am owned by one XD
I know of one breeder in Canada who actually brought in dogs straight from Tibet. Amazing dedication!!

Here's her homepage ---> [link]

Thank you for your sweet words! Zodd will get a hug with greetings from you :D

You are so lucky! I love that breed. But I find myself feeling a bit hesitant of getting one.. Are they really indendant and not affectionate? I am looking for a breed that would appreciate being cuddled and even come to you for a cuddle.

Both my dogs (Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and Siberian Husky) don't really like it. :XD:

I have heard of that breeder! She owns the top Tibie in Canada! Beautiful dogs. :)

Well, I can only speak for Zodd and he LOVES a good cuddle :D He stetches out with paws in the air, waiting to get a bellyrub.
And now that I think of it it's not only Zodd, but quite a few other TMs I know that comes to get cuddles.
Zodd is very affectionate towards his people. Sure, they are independant, but not in a "i don't need people" way. They LOVE their pack and wants nothing more than to be around them!
This is at least true for my boy and a few others I know.

Thank you so much for replying. :3

When I read "independant" in my books, it made me think of a Siberian Husky. It's best to have a professional opinion that trust what books say.. After all, not all books are accurate.

You really have a beautiful dog and amazing photographs. Keep doing what you do. It's amazing. :D

Thank you so much :aww:

Well, independant is a good word for the TM, but it's far from enough. They are so much more. And I am sure there are individuals who are extremely independant.
I've spent every hour of every day (except for a trip now and then) with Zodd since he moved here as a 11 week old pup. We have formed a strong bond. This is perhaps not the situation for all people with TMs - they have one or two, but then work all day away from home and get a dog that'll learn to manage on its own.
Zodd wants to be by my side all the time... And I want him there *grin* I am a TM addict XD

I have no statistics on their lifespan, but I do know that Zodd's grandfather lived to be 17 years.
