The Journey of the Shih Tzu tells the factual story about the Shih Tzu breed- a story that spans thousands of years, journeys across continents, and the poignant role the Shih Tzu played in the cross fire of history. Shih Tzu are not just popular show dogs or stay at home balls of fluff, but hardy, accomplished, survivalists of the first order! During their journey, they have changed from Mongolian wolves to companion dogs in the Tibetan plateau. Their mission to China was as diplomats of peace and loyal companions of emperors. During China’s wars of the 1900’s, only a very few ancestors of today’s modern dogs managed to escape to happy homes all over the world. The story itself is narrated by Raja the Shih Tzu and is based on years of research. This historical breed fancy hardcover book is beautifully illustrated with Shih Tzu themed Himalayan and Asian art and creative photo images. Discover how the Shih Tzu embodies a playful, living representation of the evolutionary blueprint of diverse skills and natural inclinations that is a trademark of this remarkable, versatile Himalayan dog.
The Journey of the Shih Tzu is not only a perfect collectible gift for Shih Tzu owners but it also appeals to those interested in canine history, Asian history, and it also makes for a great children’s book.
