The Tibetan Mastiff

There is something behind the eyes of the Tibetan Mastiff.
Most people who have ever met one will agree.
There is something ancient there, watching the modern world with a hint of disdain, as if they know something that is lost to the people rushing through life, hunting for the future .
The Tibetan Mastiff is always in the moment; a calm observer of the now and here.
They react when they decide it’s time, but they have learned long ago the art of serenity.
When a Tibetan Mastiff wakes up and rushes into the flow of time, a short break from his role as keeper of the calm, it will never go unnoticed.
He is the roaring beast sprung from another era, guardian of everything that is important and one can see the centuries of duty in his stance.
He represents something that is on the verge of extinction in this day and age, and it will become clear to you the moment you open your heart to him.
He will teach you of ages past, of undying loyalty and the purest of friendship.
He will let you into his world and share his view on life with you once you’ve earned his trust.
