Chow Chow

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
The Chow-Chow is a dog breed originally from northern China, where it is referred to as Songshi-Quan, which means "puffy-lion dog". This pretty girl is a celebrity at a local hardware shore. Her owner brings her to work almost every day, and she greets customers and rides around on her cushion on a push cart.

Really pretty girl. In Finland, the owner of a Chow-chow will hear a standard joke asking if your dog has eaten blueberries when its tongue is blue.

She is a pretty girl! I think businesses need a greeter like this. I love going into a place that has a cat. At the orchard where I worked, one dog they had was a greeter. I would see people come and one would get out to run in and get apples, and the other would sit in the car. Well, there would go Nickolas out to see them, an before you knew it, the other person would get out to pet him...then maybe on into the shop.

Chows are sweet. And this one looks like a very sweet girl. My brother had a chow a while ago. Loved it. In fact, his daughter brushed it regularly, saved the hair/fur, and had a neighbour woman, card the fur and make a pair of mittens. They proudly hang in her house, long after the dog is gone.
